About Oats Bread Recipe

Healthy and hearty, this mildly sweet oats bread has subtle flavour of honey. It toasts well and also goes well with soups, stews and simple veggies.

Oats Bread

Ingredients to make Oats Bread

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup oats
  • 1 and ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoon butter
  • 3 tablespoon honey or sugar
  • 2 teaspoon instant dry yeast
  • 1 and 1/4 cup warm milk

How to make Oats Bread

  1. Whisk together the first 3 listed ingredients in a large bowl.
  2. Mix the milk, honey and yeast together. Then cover it for 15 minutes.
  3. Add the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients and knead till you get a very smooth, soft and elastic dough. You may add some warm water if the dough feels hard or dry.
  4. Transfer this dough into a greased bowl, cover and let it rest for 1 hour or until its puffy. This dough will not double in size.
  5. After this time, transfer it to a floured counter and punch. Knead this for 2 minutes.
  6. Grease one 4 ½ x 8 ½ inch loaf pan. Shape the dough into a log. Place it in the prepared pan. Cover and keep it in a warm place to rise for 1 to 1 and ½ hour or till it crests above the rim of the pan.
  7. Bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees for 35-40 minutes or till the top turns brown and the bottom sounds hollow when tapped. Cover the top with a foil if it is browning too fast.
  8. Slice when cold, or slice and serve the next day.

My Tip:

Add more honey if you want a sweeter bread. It tastes great when toasted and consumed with a generous lashing of butter.
