2 loaves of bread

2 c

1 c
old fashioned oatmeal
1/2 c
maple sugar or brown sugar
1/2 tsp
maple flavoring
1 Tbsp
1/4 c
real butter
1 tsp
1 Tbsp
1 pkg
instant active dry yeast
1 1/2 c
white whole wheat flour
4 c
all purpose flour

Directions Step-By-Step

In a large mixing bowl, combine the first 8 ingredients. Let cool to lukewarm.
Add the yeast and flours, stirring to form a rough dough. Knead about 10 minutes by and about 5-7 minutes by mixer, until the dough is smooth and satiny. Transfer the dough to a lightly greased bowl, cover the bowl with lightly greased plastic wrap, and let rise for 1 hour.
Divide the dough in half and shape each half into a loaf. Place the loaves in 2 greased 8 x 4- inch bread pans. Cover the pans with lightly greased plastic wrap, and allow the loaves to rise 1 inch above the pan, about 1 hour.
Bake the loaves in a preheated 350^ oven for 35-40 minutes. Remove from the oven when golden brown and interior is about 190^ on instant-read thermometer.
