Begin by adding your warm water, eggs, and cooled melted butter to a bowl.
In the bowl of your stand mixer, add the remaining ingredients and mix to combine. Slowly pour in the egg mixture with the machine running and mix to combine. Knead/mix on low speed for 6 minutes. The dough will resemble cookie dough at this stage.
Scrape the dough into a greased 11-inch by 5-inch loaf pan. Using wet fingers, press the dough into the sides of the pan. Coming from the bottom, tightly wrap aluminum foil around the outside of the pan. This is to help the bread rise straight up for that tall loaf effect. You want the top edge of the foil to come up at least 1 inch above the pan. Cover loosely with plastic wrap.
Allow the dough to rise for 1 hour at room temperature, or until the bread has risen by 50% in volume. Add more oats over the top of the bread for decoration, if desired.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray the top of the loaf lightly with water. Place the bread on the middle rack and bake for 1½ hours, turning the bread halfway through baking. Remove from the oven and allow the bread to sit for 10 minutes, removing the foil around the outside of the pan.
After 10 minutes, remove the bread from the pan and allow it to finish cooling on a wire rack. Allow it to cool completely before slicing and serving.
To freeze: Slice your bread into slices and store in the freezer in single baggies. Heat from frozen in the toaster or toaster oven.
