Spread oats in a shallow baking pan.
Bake at 375° for 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly toasted, stirring frequently.
Let cool slightly.
Reserve 2 tablespoons toasted oats for topping.
Combine remaining 1 cup toasted oats, 1 cup all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, brown sugar, salt, and yeast in a large bowl.
Combine milk, 1 cup water, margarine, and molasses in a saucepan; cook over medium heat until margarine melts, stirring occasionally.
Cool to 120° to 130°.
Gradually add milk mixture and egg to flour mixture, beating at low speed of an electric mixer until blended.
Beat an additional 2 minutes at medium speed.
Gradually stir in enough of the remaining 2 cups all-purpose flour to make a soft dough.
Sprinkle 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour evenly over work surface.
Turn dough out onto floured surface, and knead until smooth and elastic (about 8 to 10 minutes).
Place dough in a large bowl coated with cooking spray, turning to coat top.
Cover and let rise in a warm place (85°), free from drafts, 45 minutes or until doubled in bulk.
Punch dough down; divide dough in half.
Sprinkle 1 1/2 teaspoons all-purpose flour evenly over work surface.
Roll 1 portion of dough into a 10- x 6-inch rectangle.
Roll up, starting at short side, pressing firmly to eliminate air pockets; pinch ends to seal.

Repeat procedure with remaining dough and 1 1/2 teaspoons all-purpose flour.
