Oatmeal Bread  
A bread flavored with oatmeal or rolled oats that is prepared with only a small portion of oat flour. Wheat flour generally makes up the greater percentage of flour in the dough due to the lack of gluten strength in oat flour. The oatmeal or rolled oats added to the basic dough give the bread a delicious flavor and pleasing texture. There are a wide variety of oatmeal breads and many have additional ingredients that provide flavor and texture, such as raisins, brown sugar, cinnamon, molasses, honey, maple syrup, milk, buttermilk, butter, and eggs. Oatmeal bread is a favorite tea bread in England and Scotland and in the United States, it is popular as a breakfast item when toasted and spread with jams or preserves.
