 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1       pk           Active dry yeast
      1/4   c            Warm water
      1/4   c            Molasses
    4       tb           Dairy free margarine
    2       ts           Salt
      1/4   c            Brown sugar
    2       c            Oatmeal (uncooked)
    1       c            Boiling water
    1       c            Cool water
    2       c            Whole wheat flour
    2 1/2   c            Unbleached white flour
    Measure 1/4 cup warm water and stir yeast and 1
   tablespoon of the molasses in the water. Let stand
   until bubbly.
    Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine margarine,
   remaining molasses, salt, brown sugar, oatmeal and the
   boiling water, stirring until margarine melts.
    Add cool water and yeast to above mixture. Beat in 4
   cups of the flour, 1 cup at a time.
    Turn out the dough onto a floured board and knead
   until smooth, about 5 minutes, adding more flour as
   needed to prevent sticking. Turn dough over in a
   greased bowl; cover and let rise ina warm place until
   doubled (about 1 hour).
    Punch dough down and divide into 16 equalpieces.
   Shape each piece into a smooth ball. Place balls about
   2 inches apart on greased baking sheets and flatten
   slightly. Cover and let rise in a warm place until
   doubled (30 or 40 minutes.)
    Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven until lightly
   browned, about 20 minutes.
    Note: This recipe can be shaped into 2 loaves and
   placed in greased 9 x 5-inch loaf pans. Allow to rise
   until double and bake in a 350 degree oven about 40
   minutes or until bread sounds hollow when tapped on
