“A slightly sweet dense bread that is great toasted and for sandwiches. I use thick organic oats. Just don't use the quick or instant. Use real maple syrup. Grade B has the most flavor. Thanks Blucoat, for the reference, I did not know where it was from - I got the recipe from a friend, who got it from another friend. Posted it because I thought it was a wonderful bread.”
