  1. Pour the warm water into a large bowl, and whisk in 4 teaspoons of bread flour, the yeast, and the white sugar until thoroughly combined and the sugar has dissolved. Allow to stand until the yeast starts to form creamy bubbles, about 5 minutes.
  2. Fit a dough blade into a large food processor, and place 3 1/2 cups of bread flour, the oats, whole wheat flour, salt, brown sugar, and vegetable oil into the work bowl. Start the food processor running, and slowly add enough of the water-yeast mixture to allow the dough to form a firm ball and pull away from the sides of the processor, about 1 minute. Process for another 30 seconds to knead.
  3. Place the dough into an oiled bowl, and turn to coat the dough with oil. Cover with a damp cloth, and allow the dough to rise until doubled, about 1 hour. Punch down the dough, and divide into 2 equal-sized pieces. Form each piece into a loaf; pinch the seams and ends closed.
  4. Grease 2 4x8-inch loaf pans, and place the loaves into the pans with the seam sides down. Allow to rise until the dough is 1 inch above the rim of the pans, about 1 more hour.
  5. While dough is rising, preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until the tops are browned, about 35 minutes. Allow bread to cool in pans for 10 minutes, then turn out onto cooling racks to finish cooling.

Unfortunately, this didn’t work out for me. I made half the recipe for one loaf so it would fit in my food processor. I noticed in the reviews, several bakers had problems with the second rise...

Turned out great! I used all purpose flour instead of bread flour. Mine also took longer to rise, about 75 minutes. Will definitely make again! Thanks for sharing!

Wonderful!!! Son requested some to take home. Need more recipes adapted to the food processor, please!!

This bread is fabulous! I cannot stop eating it. It was very easy to whip up on the food processor. My first rise took an hour and my second rise took a couple of hours. I just left it in a warm...

Wonderful bread! Good texture with a nice light crust. I made it in my bread maker on the dough cycle then divided into 4 long sandwich shop style loaves. I baked them on greased cookie sheets ...

So easy, and tastes good, too. I was glad to find a recipe that didn't involve a bread maker or a lot of kneading. This turned out great, dispite the fact that I used all purpose flour rather ...

Insanely easy to make and absolutely delicious. I made it yesterday and 1 loaf was gone at dinner time and the other we saved for breakfast.

Recently bought a Kitchenaid F/P and thought I would give this recipe a try. F/P handled the ingredients without a problem and had a good looking dough in a few minutes. Both rises were very goo...
