2 1/4 tsp active dry or instant yeast (1 packet)
2 tbsp honey
2 eggs plus 1 more for egg wash
1/4 c neutral oil like vegetable or canola
1 1/2 c white whole wheat flour
1 1/2 c bread flour
1 1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 c old fashioned oats
Approach this challah as you would normally bake an egg bread. Proof the yeast in warm but not hot water with the honey. After 10 minutes have passed (or the yeast is foamy and smells strongly), add 2 eggs and the oil.
Add the flours, cinnamon, salt, and oats. Mix in a stand-mixer or by hand until a ball forms.
This challah has inspired me to try more oat recipes or perhaps even oat flour. The result here is quite soft, aromatic, and hearty. Have YOU worked with oats in bread before?
