Combine all ingredients in a spiral mixer and blend for 4 minutes on your mixer’s first speed and then for 6 minutes on your mixer’s second speed, or until the dough is fully developed. Maintain the dough temperature at 78°F (25.5°C) and let the dough rise for 10 minutes.


Next, divide dough into 1.2 lb (540 g) portions and shape into loaves by hand or place into pans for pan bread. Top each loaf with toasted rolled oats and place into a proofer set to 90°F (32°C) with 85% humidity for 50 to 60 minutes.


Next, bake loaves in a rack, deck, or revolving oven at 428°F (220°C) for 30 minutes, with steam if applicable. Remove from oven, and let cool.
