  1. Step 1

    Gather the ingredients.
  2. Step 2

    Preheat the oven to 400 F. Grease a pie plate with the oil.
  3. Step 3

    Mix the flour, oats, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl until well combined.
  4. Step 4

    Add the melted and cooled butter and stir just until mixed.
  5. Step 5

    Add the 1/2 cup water and stir just until blended; don't overmix or the bread will be heavy. Small lumps are OK as long as the flour is absorbed into the dough.
  6. Step 6

    Place the dough on the pie plate. Lightly flour your hands and gently pat the dough evenly onto the plate.
  7. Step 7

    Score the dough into 8 wedges to make cutting easier when the bread is done.
  8. Step 8

    Bake in the oven for 30 minutes or until light golden brown and slightly darker around the edges.
  9. Step 9

    Cut into 8 pieces and serve with butter, jam, syrup, and honey.

    Serve and enjoy!
