Beat vigorously for two minutes.
Gradually add remaining flour, a little at a time, until you have a dough stiff enough to knead.
Turn dough out onto a floured surface.
Knead, adding flour as necessary, until you have a smooth, elastic dough.
Put the dough into an oiled bowl, turning once to coat the entire ball of dough with oil, and cover with a towel.
Prove for approximately one hour in a warm place until doubled in size.
Grease two 9 x 5-inch or 10 x 5-inch loaf pans, and sprinkle with rolled oats.
Turn dough out onto a lightly oiled work surface  and divide in half.
Shape dough into loaves and place in prepared pans.
Cover with a towel and prove for approximately 45 minutes.
Just before baking, brush tops of loaves with egg/water mixture. Sprinkle with additional rolled oats.
Bake in a preheated 190°c/gas mark 5 oven for 30 minutes or until golden brown. Remove bread from pans immediately and cool.
