You will have wonderful vegan bread to enjoy. First time I tried this, the crust was too dark for my preference so now I use the lighter crust setting.

I've had good luck with this recipe... just add another 1/2 tsp of yeast and check the water during the mix.

I add flax seeds, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds and sesame seeds to it with success. Have also enjoyed adding sundried tomatoes.


I used 1 1/4 cup water based on other reviews & I think this was a mistake. I also used a cup of this "hot cereal medley" I had instead of oatmeal. It was mostly oatmeal, but also had flax, sunflower seeds & bran I think. I also threw in a handful of walnuts. The flavor of the bread was excellent, but it didnt really rise, it was concave & very moist. Next time I'll try just a cup of water. The difference may be that i used oatmeal whereas I think the reviewers that said it needed more water may have been using oat flour?


I make this all the time now. It is good with a handful of sunflower seeds. I've used brown rice syrup, molasses, agave nectar and dehydrated cane sugar, all with good results. I always use whole wheat flour. I only used bread flour the first time and don't see a difference. What a wonderful recipe. So light and moist, yet whole grain. Yum!


I used oatmeal that I ground myself into a coarse flour. I think using quick oats would work too, though.


I need to know, do you use reg or quick oatmeal.  please advise ASAP, as I would like to try this right away. :( Thank you B. Keller


This worked so well. It produced a nice tall, light loaf. I added 1/2 cup more water. For flour I used whole wheat bread flour plus 1 tbsp. vital wheat gluten. I coarsely ground my oats. The only issue was that it rose just an inch to much and grazed the lid. I did add 2 1/2 tsp. traditional yeast, so maybe all I needed was the 2 it called for. This is definitely going to be made more in my kitchen.


Love this recipe--I add a half cup more water and a little more yeast, and then dried cranberries.  My boyfriend and I have been eating it for breakfast for the last two weeks, it's delicious!
