Fresh Homemade Honey Oat Bread is great for sandwiches or toast.

Our snowy weather continues. One to two inches every single day and we even had a winter storm warning in the middle of the week. My daughter said she thinks we will have snow on the ground until June! I’m beginning to wonder…

In the meanwhile, baking must go on! During the middle of one of our snowstorms I made this honey oat bread! I think the smell of baking bread is one of the best smells around!

I make a lot of bread… Cracked Wheat Bread, White Sandwich Bread, White Whole Wheat Bread, Multigrain Bread.…. I’m not certain I have a favorite. As long as it’s homemade, I’m loving it!

How much time does it take to make homemade bread?

Baking homemade bread takes a bit of time. Well, a bit of planning and waiting time. Not a lot of hands on time. You do need to plan enough time to mix up the dough, let it rise, shape the dough, let it rise and then bake the dough.

I will often start a batch first thing in the morning on the weekends and by mid morning, my bread making in all done.

What type of flour do I use to make bread?

This honey oat bread is made with unbleached all-purpose flour, white wheat flour, and old fashioned oats.  White wheat flour is a lighter wheat than regular wheat flour. It is milled from hard white winter wheat instead of from hard red wheat. White wheat yields a lighter texture and flavor but is filled with all the nutrients you want from a whole wheat flour.

Another recipe I make using white wheat flour is this Whole Wheat Bread.

Don’t forget to PIN for later!

  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 - 2 1/2 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup oats optional
  1. In a large bowl of a stand mixer, mix water, yeast and honey. Let stand for 5 minutes until bubbly.

  2. Mix in olive oil, oats and salt

  3. Mix in all-purpose flour.

  4. Mix in white whole wheat flour 1/2 cup at a time. You might not need all the flour. Reserve the final 1/2 cup to determine if needed. Dough should be tacky, but not overly sticky. 

  5. Knead dough in stand mixer for 5 minutes

  6. Place dough in a greased bowl, cover with plastic wrap and let sit for at least one hour, or until doubled.

  7. Gently deflate dough by pressing your fist into the center of the dough. 

  8. Divide dough in two and shape into two loaves. Place loaves into greased bread pans. Cover with a clean towel and let rise for 30 minutes.

  9. Just before baking brush loaves with water, (or egg white mixed with 1 Tablespoon of water) and sprinkle with oats. 

  10. Place in a preheated 375 degree oven and bake for 40 minutes. 

  11. Let cool in pan for 5 minutes. Remove and place on a baking rack until completely cooled.

    I made this recipe last night – one of my fall goals is to bake a loaf of bread every weekend. It turned out great! 5 stars! It was easy and delicious.

    Can you use a bread machine for the oat bread. Thank you for the ideas. Love your blog.

      Hi Barbara,
      I haven’t used a bread machine so I’m not certain how it would work in one.

    We just got 16-20 inches of snow from yesterday’s blizzard and I feel like it’s won’t be gone any time soon. I’ll just stay inside and bake your honey oat bread. I love eating a big thick slice of bread hot out of the oven with some real butter. YUMMMMMMMY!!!

    We got snow here over the weekend, and it’s currently in the 30’s… all I can say is the weather sure has been crazy! But soon enough we will all be complaining that it’s unbearably hot out. lol. I guess Mother Nature can never really win, huh? šŸ˜‰ Anyways, I love this bread, Kathy! Honey and oats is such a delicious combination! I bet this makes THE best sandwiches and toast. Cheers, friend!

    Oh, I am so grateful for the sunny days we had lately, I am so done with snow this year, I don’t need to see it again until December. But unfortunately it can still snow, sometimes up until April or so… You have such a nice bread collection and you are right the smell of baking bread in the house is so good.

    Yup, snow day here in New York. Every school is closed and most businesses. Doesn’t even look that bad! After spending 2 weeks in Disney, I was spoiled on no-snow. But then again picked up Scarlett Fever and strep at the part and have been down and out every since. All I can stomach is bread these days. That’s it! My stomach won’t allow anything else and at 30 weeks pregnant, I have to eat something for baby! The oatmeal on top is perfect too, nothing harsh on my sad stomach. Thanks for sharing!

      Oh my goodness, Laura! I hope you survive the snow storm and are able to keep some food down. Hopefully this bread will do the trick…you might need to find a baker though. I’m not sure you will be able to do any baking until you get your energy back. Take care of yourself!

    I have everything I need to bake this gorgeous bread! I love the smell of bread baking in the oven, well, of baking in general, my passion šŸ™‚ . We’ve had bad snow here, too and that’s what I said my husband: we’ll have snow until June, this year (but he’s positive and said no way!) šŸ™‚

    So we don’t have any snow on the ground right now…but they’re calling for 12-18″ tomorrow. Yeah, I’m so not excited about that one! But I like your idea of just staying inside and baking bread. I’ll have to bake some loaves tomorrow! This looks like one mighty tasty oat bread! šŸ™‚

    We still have a bunch of snow on the ground too and winter seems to be lasting forever! In the meantime, while it’s cold out, it’s perfect to stay inside and bake a loaf of this goodness. There’s nothing like the smell of homemade bread and someone should bottle that stuff up. This loaf looks fantastic. Wish I had a slice or two now with my morning coffee šŸ™‚

    Honey wheat is one of my faves, so why not honey wheat with oat? Even better! Looks perfect.
