Recipe for Nova Scotia Oatmeal Bread. To the rolled oats, salt and shortening, add the 2 cups boiling water. When this mixture is tepid, add molasses and the yeast dissolved in 2/3 cup warm water.


To all of the above add flour until the dough is firm enough to handle.

This uses whole wheat flour, oats ground to flour, coconut oil and very little sugar. I omitted the topping to save further on calories. It is delicious without it.
