Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour

2 tablespoons granulated white sugar

2 tablespoons old fashioned rolled oats

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 cups buttermilk

Directions:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) and place the rack in the center of the oven. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl, whisk together the flours, sugar, oats, baking soda, and salt. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and add most of the buttermilk. Using yours hands, or a wooden spoon, mix (adding more buttermilk if necessary) until you have a soft moist dough.Transfer to a lightly floured surface and gently knead the dough into a 7-inch (18 cm) round that is about 1 inch (2.54 cm) thick. Place the round on your prepared baking sheet and then, with a sharp knife, cut a 1/4-inch deep "X" across the top of the bread.Bake for about 40 - 50 minutes or until nicely browned and a toothpick inserted into the center of the bread comes out clean. You can also test that is fully baked by tapping the bottom of the bread - it should sound hollow. Remove from oven.
