Natural Honey and Oats Bread

Delicious bread made with Pure Raw Honey and Whole Oats!! Soft and light with a light crunchy crust. One of my favorites for toast and sandwiches.


1 1/2 cups warm water
1/3 cup Organic Sunflower Oil
1/2 cup raw organic honey

Place in a small bowl and heat in microwave just until warm.

In your mixer put in 5 cups of unbleached all purpose flour
1 cup whole oats
4 1/2 tsp. dry active yeast
1 tsp. salt

whisk with wire whisk, then replace whisk with dough hook. Slowly add your warm liquid with mixer on low speed for a few minutes.

add two eggs (farm fresh) mix for another couple of minutes. You may need to add an additional 1 cup to 1 1/2 cups of flour. The dough will begin to pull away from the bowl when its ready.

Place the dough ball in an oiled bowl and cover with a towel in a warm place to rise double in bulk. This takes about an hour. When it's ready punch it down and turn on to a lightly floured surface and divide the dough in half. Roll out, roll up and place both rolls in bread pans. Cover in a warm place for another hour or until double in bulk.

Bake in oven for about 1/2 hour on 375 degrees. Take out and brush with egg whites and sprinkle some whole oats on top. Bake for another 5 minutes.

You can always test your bread to see if it is done by turning it upside down out of the pan and tapping on the bottom. If it sounds hollow it is done. Cool your loaves on a wire rack

Enjoy and Happy Gardening!
