Easy Homemade Honey-Oat Bread

Easy Homemade Honey-Oat Bread

So simple to make. Whip up a loaf and watch it disappear!


2 ¼ cups bread flour

¾ cup whole wheat flour

¾ cups old-fashioned oatmeal

1 package instant yeast

1 ½ teaspoons salt

3 tablespoons butter

1 cup whole milk

¼ cup water

¼ cup honey

1 Tablespoon butter

1 Tablespoon honey

2 Tablespoons oatmeal


Combine flours, oatmeal, yeast, and salt in a large bowl. In a small bowl, microwave butter just until melted. Add milk and ¼ cup water to melted butter and microwave for 1 minute. Stir in ¼ cup honey.

Add wet mixture to dry ingredients in the large bowl, mixing well. On a lightly floured counter, knead dough for 10 minutes until smooth and elastic. (May also use a stand mixer with the dough hook attachment.)

Place the dough in an oiled bowl. Cover with a towel and place in a warm place to rise until doubled, about 1 hour. (Time will depend on the temperature and humidity of the kitchen.) Punch down and form into a loaf. Place in a buttered 9 x 5 loaf pan. Cover with a towel and let rise in a warm place for about 90 minutes or until it is about doubled. Bake at 350º for 35-40 minutes until lightly golden.

When loaf is done, brush with the tablespoon of butter. Warm the tablespoon of honey in the microwave for a few seconds so it will easily spread. Spread on top of the loaf, covering it completely. Sprinkle with oatmeal. Let cool before slicing.
