This bread has an excellent texture and flavor. I didn't bother to process the oats, like one other reviewer I thought it would be more interesting this way. After the oat/water mixture cooled off, I put the maple syrup, yeast, salt, and oil right in there. Since I didn't use any additional water, I upped the moisture content a little by adding 1/2 cup of maple syrup rather than 1/3. It just seemed silly to save a teeny bit in the bottle I had. Anyway, I dumped the whole thing in a bread machine and ending up adding only 3 cups of flour (to make up for the 1/3 cup of water I skipped.) I set the machine for a 1 lb. loaf of white bread and light crust. I skipped the topping because I didn't want to lift the bread machine top and cause moisture or heat to escape. It turned out excellently! I got the end piece while it was still hot and put a slice of Swiss cheese on it to melt into it. Nice, mildly nutty flavor. I made sandwiches for the family with a Hormel Cure 81 boneless brown sugar quarter sliced ham, Now there's a sandwich even the kids will like and not even know there's oatmeal in it.
