IRISH BROWN BREAD

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 1/4 cups whole-wheat flour
3/4 cup quick cook oats
1/2 cup wheat germ
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 3/4 cups buttermilk
2 tbsp honey

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Spray a large baking sheet with cooking oil spray; set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, mix all-purpose flour, whole-wheat flour, oats, wheat germ, baking soda, and salt. In a small bowl, whisk together the buttermilk and honey. Add the buttermilk mixture to the flour mixture and stir to combine until a soft dough is formed. Turn dough out onto a floured surface and divide in half. Shape each half into a round loaf. Place loaves on the prepared baking sheet about 3-inches apart. Bake at 425 degrees for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 400 degrees and continue baking 10 minutes more or until bread sounds hollow when tapped. Allow to cool for 15 minutes before slicing.

Note: Sprinkle a few dry oats over the top before baking, if desired.
