I have made this bread a few times now and it truly is very very good. No Fail!! I would like to find the nutritional info if it is available for this bread. The loaves are beautiful and I haven't bought store bought bread since finding this recipe. Any help in finding the caloric count etc. would truly be appreciated. Thanks!

I love to bake this bread when I need something for sandwiches. It also makes a fantastic toast. If you are just starting out making your own bread, oatmeal bread is a nice gateway. It is more dense than white bread, but not as heavy as another type may be. 

This is a simple, delicious bread for everyday use. Try it!
