Honey Oatmeal Bread


In a large mixing bowl combine 2 cups of the flour and the yeast. In a sauce pan heat milk, honey, oil and salt just till warm (115 degrees). Add to dry mixture in mixing bowl. Beat at low speed with electric mixer for 1/2 minute, scraping sides of bowl constantly. Beat 3 minutes at high speed.

By hand, stir in oats, gluten and enough of the remaining flour to make a stiff dough. Turn out onto lightly floured surface and knead till smooth and elastic (8-10 minutes). Shape in a ball and place in a lightly greased bowl, turning once to grease surface. Cover and let rise in a warm place until double in size (about 45 minutes). Punch dough down; turn out onto lightly floured surface. Divide in half. Cover and let rest 10 minutes.

Shape into two loaves; place in two greased 8-1/2" x 4-1/2" x 2-1/2" bread pans. Cover and let rise in warm place till double (about 30 minutes). Bake at 375 degrees for 35-40 minutes. Remove from pans; cool on wire racks. Makes 2 loaves (13 slices each).

This recipe sounded really good, however I could not get it to rise. I followed the recipe to the T but unfortunately it didn work. Not sure if Ill try it again because its such a waste when it doesn work.

If the bread did not rise, the most likely culprit is the yeast. Make sure to use warm water (about 110°F); after about 5 minutes, the yeast should look milky and slightly foamy. Also, make sure to let this bread rise in a warm area, around 75°F.

AWESOME RECIPE! I'm starting to throw out all the bad food and replacing it with healthy. The loaves of bread are so expensive, so I thought I'd try this recipe. The bread turned out great! I'm very pleased and I will be making it again soon.

This is my go to recipe when I make bread. It's a huge hit and isn't heavy like a brick like most wheat bread. I use whitewheat flour and it comes out perfect!!! So good fresh out of the oven with from butter.

Will this recipe work in a bread machine or can you suggest how to convert it for a machine?

You may prepare our Honey Oatmeal Bread recipe in a bread machine. Keep in mind that this recipe produces two bread loaves and that you will need to scale the recipe down to the appropriate measures. Add ingredients as recommended in the users manual.
