One of my favorite things to do is make homemade bread. It is usually so time consuming and seems like a ton of work, but it is so worth it when you find something that works and doesn’t take long to make! Recently, Grace took a veeeery long morning nap so I took advantage. I figured bread is usually an all day process, but that’s because it is rising, not so much because of the work involved. So I started this bread and let it rise. Between nursing sessions, I would do the different steps. It really was not all that hard.
I’ve attempted this recipe a few times now. I wanted to make something that was delicious, a little healthier than white bread, but still an easy process. I love honey wheat bread so I decided to go with that and add some oats. Next time I want to create a recipe that takes oat flour. I think a real honey oat bread would be so good!
This recipe is perfect to make a couple of loaves and freeze one. It freezes exceptionally well (I’ve used it even 3 months after baking). I am a bread lover through and through so when I discover a homemade recipe that works for me, I can’t get enough!
The problem with this bread (there’s really only one!)?
You can’t stop eating it! I’m not kidding. It is so easy to blow through a loaf if you are not careful. There is just nothing like homemade, fresh-out-of-the-oven, warm bread! Mmm, so good!
I used a combination of all-purpose flour as well as white whole wheat flour. That is why the loaves are not as dark as typical whole wheat bread. But the flavor is all there and oh, so delicious!
Just look at all those little pockets in it. And just look at that honey glaze dripping off the sides. I actually made a quick honey butter to go with this bread and it was soooo good together! Just put a little pat over a warm slice and you have got heaven on earth. For reals.
Here’s the recipe if you want to make it real quick:
That’s it! Enjoy it with any bread, but especially a wheat or oat bread. So good!
Anyway, back to the honey wheat bread…this is delish. You’ve gotta try it so here’s the recipe!
