“On a recent trip to my mom's, she had made this bread. We enjoyed it at breakfast, lunch & dinner! This recipe is from Taste of Home. Note: When Mom made this the first time, as written, she found the oats made the bread chewy. The next time (the one I had) she did not use the oats, and liked the texture much better.”
