Absolutely nothing beats the taste and smell of homemade bread! This honey oatmeal bread is made with white whole wheat flour, honey, and rolled oats. The taste of this bread is far superior to store-bought bread. Once you try making it at home, you’ll never go back to the store-bought stuff!
YIELD: 1 LOAF
1 1/4 cup hot water (about 105ºF)
1/3 cup honey
3 tablespoons butter, melted
2 1/4 teaspoons (1 standard packet) active yeast (see note)
1 1/4 – 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour (I used white whole wheat)
1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup dry milk
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
1 tablespoons melted honey
1 tablespoons old-fashioned rolled oats
Instant yeast will also work for this recipe but the rising times listed will not be accurate. Your dough will rise in almost half the time than what is listed.
- In a small bowl or a glass measuring cup, combine the hot water, honey, butter, and yeast. Allow the yeast to bloom for 5-7 minutes. You should be able to smell and see it foam up at the top.
- Combine all the dry ingredients, 1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour, all purpose flour, dry milk, salt, and rolled oats in a bowl. Stir until just mixed.
- Add the dry ingredients to the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the dough hook attachment. Once the yeast has bloomed, add the liquid ingredients to the mixer, and mix on medium speed for 10-12 minutes or until the dough comes together. If after 10 minutes, the dough is still not forming a ball, add the whole wheat flour in 1 tablespoon at a time until the dough just holds together. You may or may not need all 4 of the remaining tablespoons of whole wheat flour.
