Herbed Oat Pan Bread
A great recipe if you take meals to people!
It can also be versatile because if you follow the directions the herbs go on top of the bread. So you could make this savory OR sweet.
Next time I may try to work some of the herbs into the dough though, to make the dough more dimensional.
