Hearty Oat Bread

Adapted from the recipe for Oatmeal Bread from King Arthur Flour

  • 3 cups unbleached bread flour
  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 1 packet active dry yeast (about 2 1/2 tsp)
  • 3 Tbsp honey

Warm the milk and butter in a small saucepan.  Cool to lukewarm, then mix in the yeast and honey and let sit for 5 minutes.  Combine the flour, oats and salt in a large bowl, then pour in the liquid.  Mix to form a dough, then knead by hand for 10 minutes.  Place in a lightly greased bowl, cover and let rise for about 1 hour.  Shape the bread and place in a loaf pan, then cover and let rise another 1 1/2 hours.  Bake in a preheated 350°F oven for 40 minutes or until done.

  1. It looks beautiful and delicious. My oven is broken (Argh!) but when I get my new stove I will have to try this out. 🙂

  2. Looks yummy and hearty! You’re much more adventurous than me with yeast recipes! You, go, girl!
