How To Make Honey Oat Bread
- Preheat the oven and grease a 9×5-inch bread loaf pan.
- Whisk together the dry ingredients in a large bowl and the wet ingredients in another bowl.
- Combine the liquid and dry ingredients and gently mix until incorporated. Do not over-mix.
- Pour the batter into the loaf pan and bake for 45-50 minutes. The top should be golden and domed.
- Cool in the pan for 15 minutes, then turn out onto a cutting board and slice up for dinner or a snack. It’s especially delicious with some honey butter spread on it.
No, baking this type of bread isn’t difficult at all, and with my step-by-step instructions, I’ve taken out all of the guesswork.
Yes, if you don’t have honey, you can use maple syrup or brown sugar.
No, you want to use rolled oats. Instant oats become soggy when used in baked goods.
Yes! The recipe is easy to double as long as you have 2 pans, and it freezes beautifully. Just make sure that it has cooled down completely before wrapping it up.
Like most types of bread, this loaf will dry out in the fridge so it’s totally fine to leave it on the counter, stored in a resealable plastic bag.
- Brush the top of the loaf with melted butter for a glossy finish.
- Allow the bread to cool before slicing to avoid crumbling.
- Use a serrated knife for slicing bread.
- Experiment with adding nuts or seeds for added texture and nutrition.
- Instead of oats, try adding a packet of instant oatmeal for an instant flavor boost.
