Can I use this mix in my 1 pound capacity or 1.5 pound capacity bread machine?

We have designed our mixes specifically for 2 lb. capacity machines. However, you may still find success with 1.5 lb. capacity machines. You may expect to see the top of the loaf touch the lid of the machine towards the end of the baking cycle. This may lead to imperfect baking in that one spot on the loaf. The rest of the loaf should be fine. For 1 lb. bread machines, we recommend only running the bread on the dough cycle and then transfer the dough to a pan for baking in a conventional oven. See packaging for more info.

Why do the directions ask me to use a thermometer?

Yeast is very sensitive to heat and other environmental factors. We have tested and designed our mixes to find the sweet spot for yeast activity to get the best rise. Even just a few degrees off on water temperature can make a big impact on the quality of your bread. Measuring the temperature of your water accurately is the best way to ensure consistently successful bread baking.

I followed the directions exactly and I see had a problem with my bread? What can I do?

Sometimes bread issues happen. We are happy to help. Send us a picture of your bread and a picture of the back packaging of your bread mix to our customer support email at Include as much detail as possible about your baking process and bread machine model so we can troubleshoot the cause of the issue.

Should I adjust my mix for high altitudes?

We don't recommend making any changes to the mix for high altitudes. We have tested our mixes in a variety of locations and have fine tuned each mix to be the best product possible.

I don't have a bread machine or a stand-type mixer. Can I still make this bread in my oven?


This is a delightful bread.

It's made with old-fashioned rolled oats, a little whole wheat, and the finest Montana bread flour we can find.

It's light and moist, touched with a light creamy bronze color. It's a family loaf, a sandwich loaf. The oats are soft, just part of the crumb, but they hold the bread together and trap moisture.

And it has plenty of milk. Dairy always makes bread better. It softens the flavors and sweetens the bread.

  • Makes a perfect crunchy toast or chewy bread for soup or sandwiches
  • Makes perfect bread in all popular 1 1/2 to 2-pound bread machines--or in your oven.
  • SAF gourmet yeast packet inside.
  • Directions and tips for perfect bread are included. You can make this bread in your bread machine, by hand, or with a stand-type mixer.

Great bread!

David Super
Good, easy, and good-and-easy

I like the bread, and it comes out reliably well in my bread machine. Its results are among the most consistent of any bread mixes. Despite its name, it (like most "oat" breads) is overwhelmingly wheat flour, but I pour in a lot of rolled oats and it comes out fine. I also substitute in applesauce for oil, with good results.
