Oatmeal Bread (dairy-free)

(for bread machine)

1-3/8 cup water
3 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon Earth Balance*
1 tablespoon olive oil*
3/4 cup oats (old fashioned or quick cook)
1-3/4 teaspoons salt
2-1/4 cup bread flour
1-1/2 cup whole wheat flour
2 tablespoons millled flax seed
2 teaspoons active dry yeast

Add all the ingredients in the order listed. Set bread machine for BASIC cycle. Choose LIGHT crust color.  If you can select loaf size, select for 1-1/2 lb loaf. If you cannot select for loaf size, then I think it works best to remove the loaf 5 minutes before the baking cycle ends, otherwise the crust is a bit thicker.

* You can use 2 tablespoons of Eath Balance or 2 Tablespoons of olive oil. The combination of one Tablespoon of each seems to improve the texture.
