3/4 cup boiling water
1/2 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
3 tablespoons margarine
1/4 cup honey
1 teaspoon salt
1 envelope active dry yeast
1/4 cup very warm water
1/2 teaspoon sugar
egg substitute to equal 1 egg
2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup oat-bran cereal, (Milled to a flour in a blender)

Stir together the boiling water, rolled oats, margarine, honey and salt in a large bowl until well mixed.

Let cool to warm. Sprinkle the packet of yeast over the very warm water in a 1 cup container; add the 1/2 teaspoon sugar.

Stir to dissolve the yeast, and let it stand for about 10 minutes or until the mixture bubbles.

Next add the yeast mixture, egg substitute, 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour, and the oat bran to the oatmeal mixture.

Beat with an electric mixer at low speed for 2 minutes while gradually adding the rest of the flour.

Put the dough into a 9x5x3 inch loaf pan sprayed with Baker's Joy.

Cover with waxed paper and a towel and put the pan in a warm place away from drafts.

Let the dough double in bulk, about 45 minutes.

Bake in a preheated oven at 375 degrees F. for about 1 hour.

The bread is done when it feels and sounds hollow when you tap it. Remove the bread from the pan and let it cool.
