Honey oat bread was prepared with oat, honey and bread flour as its name implied. You can use wheat flour too, I displayed two ways of making it, in case you’re wondering if the whole oat would be chewy (it wasn’t) you can grind the oat into powder before adding it to the flour. This bread is fluffy, sweet and delicious. Adjust the honey content to your taste. Let’ Bake!
- 3 Cups Bread flour
- 1 Cup Quick oat (or old fashion oat)
- 4 Tablespoons Unsalted butter (melted)
- 2 ¼ Teaspoons Yeast (or 1 packet)
- ¼ Cup Raw honey (plus more)
- 1 1/3 Cups Whole milk (warmed)
- 2 Teaspoons Salt
- In a bowl, add the warmed milk and yeast, set aside until the yeast foams up. If you’re using a mixer use the mixing bowl.
- Add the honey.
- In another bowl, add flour oat, and salt. Mix all together.
You can also blend the oat just like in the picture before you add to the bread flour.
- Gently add the melted butter and continue to mix or knead until the dough is smooth and stretchy.
Grease a bowl, and place the dough oil on the top part of the dough. Cover and place in a warm place.
Allow to double up, about 1-2 hours.
- Grease a baking pan with oil and set aside.
- Place the doubled dough on a floured surface and knead for a few minutes, form a loaf and place in the greased pan.
- Cover and place in a warm place to rise, about 45 minutes.
If you blend the oat the dough will look like this.
Melt some honey about 1-2 teaspoons and brush the dough.
If you like to sprinkle some oat over the dough, you can do that now.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 35-40 minutes or until the loaf is golden brown.
- Remove and let it cool down.
This is the blended oat and without sprinkle oat over the dough looks like this.
- Slice and enjoy!
The bread was served with Strawberry Jam (No Pectin and Low Sugar)
