This scrumptious post has been a long time coming. I first thought about doing it when my aunt first taught me how to make it awhile back, but procrastination got the best of me.
Here are the top 4 reasons I love this recipe:
1. It tastes AMAZING.
2. It can be made in 2 hours, so just in time for dinner!
3. It is super easy to make and you don’t need a bread maker.
4. It never fails or disappoints.

1 ½ cups hot tap water
1 Tablespoon dried yeast granules
2 Tablespoon sugar or honey
4-5 cups whole wheat flour
¼ cup oats
1 teaspoon origanum
1 teaspoon Basil
1 teaspoon Rosemary
1 Tablespoon Thyme
2 Tablespoons crushed garlic
1 Tablespoon salt
*USE DRIED HERBS *
* Kneading- is a press and fold motion.
1. Pour boiling water into your bowl, add yeast and honey/ or sugar. Let sit 10 minutes until yeast is foamy.
2. Stir in remaining ingredients using a wooden spoon. Mix the ingredients together until the dough is sticky.
3. Now for the fun part, using your hands knead the dough for 5 to 10 minutes on a clean, lightly floured surface, until dough is smooth, elastic and only slightly sticky.
4. Pre-heat oven until warm then turn off.
5. Pinch the kneaded dough into a loaf shape and place into a lightly greased loaf pan.
Place the loaf into the warm oven. Leave it in for 30 minutes until the dough has risen to about double its original size.
6. Leave the loaf in the oven. Turn oven to 180 ºC. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes (until golden brown.)
7. Remove the loaf from the oven. Wait for it to cool before taking it out the pan, and placing it onto a cooling rack.
Best served, thickly sliced, toasted and spread with lots of butter. It makes a great snack and goes with most dinner dishes! I hope you enjoy stuffing your face as much as I do!
Oh and best of all it can be frozen. Yay for not going rotten, well if it even last that long.
