Whole Wheat Molasses Walnut Bread

The name could be longer.  It even has oatmeal. This is heady stuff, you will love it!

Whole Wheat Molasses Walnut Bread
1 1/2 c. boiling water
1 c. oatmeal
Stir together and set aside.
In the bowl of a mixer with a dough hook, combine
3 c. whole wheat flour
1/2 c. powdered milk (opt)
1 1/2 Tbsp. rapid rise yeast
2 tsp. salt
1/4 c. packed brown sugar
2 Tbsp. oil
1/4 c. molasses
3/4 c. hot water

 Add oat mixture and mix well. Let rest for 15 minutes.  Turn on the mixer, add additional flour (white or wheat, your preference) a little at a time until the dough forms a ball and cleans the sides of the bowl.

Add 1 c. chopped walnuts

Knead for a few minutes until the walnuts are incorporated and dough is elastic.  Form 2 loaves and place in greased loaf pans.  Let raise until dough comes to the tops of the pans. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and bake for 30-35 min. Remove from pans to cool on wire racks.  Brush with melted butter.  Yield 2 loaves.

Notes: This is so good! Serve warm with jam or honey butter.
