I’m no Martha Stewart in the kitchen but I have been making decent progress over the past number of months. And thanks to a recipe a friend passed on for an easy-to-bake, healthy, yummy and very wholesome bread, I feel a little more accomplished knowing that baking bread from scratch has been marked off my must-learn-to-bake list!

(So there’s no yeast involved but it’s bread, so that counts!!)

Honey Oat Bread

I’m sure you will find all these ingredients in your kitchen, so what’s holding you back from trying this out?


I have to admit I was intimidated when I started off but when as I worked my way through the recipe I realized it wasn’t hard at all.

Believe me when I say you can bake bread!

My bread should be enough to convince you!!

  • 2 tablespoons plus 1 cup old-fashioned quick-cooking not instant oats
  • 1 1/3 cups whole-wheat flour or white whole-wheat flour (I used whole wheat flour)
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1 cup nonfat or low-fat plain yogurt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup grapeseed oil
  • 1/4 cup wildflower honey
  • 3/4 cup low-fat milk I used 2% milk
  1. Position rack in middle of oven; preheat to 375°F. Generously coat a 9-by-5-inch (or similar size) loaf pan with cooking spray.
  2. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon oats in the pan.
  3. Tip the pan back and forth to coat the sides and bottom with oats.
  4. Thoroughly stir together whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl.
  5. Using a fork, beat the remaining 1 cup oats, yogurt, egg, oil and honey in a medium bowl until well blended.
  6. Stir in milk.
  7. Gently stir the yogurt mixture into the flour mixture just until thoroughly incorporated but not over-mixed (excess mixing can cause toughening).
  8. Immediately scrape the batter into the pan, spreading evenly to the edges.
  9. Sprinkle the remaining 1 tablespoon oats over the top.
  10. Bake the loaf until well browned on top and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 50 minutes.
  11. (It’s normal for the top to crack.)
  12. Let stand in the pan on a wire rack for 15 minutes, then slice and serve.


We left our loaf out for a day and then refrigerated the same on day 2. (The bread tastes great even then.)

Honey Oat Bread.

A thick slice made a great healthy (and filling) snack for the kids after school and with a slather of chocolate spread on a slice, it kicked up the flavors two notches higher!Honey Oat Bread Recipe- MommySnippets.com


Do you bake bread from scratch? Do you have a recipe you would share with me? (I’m now pumped up to try new bread recipes!)




  1. I’m always making banana bread, it’s time I mixed up things a little and try this one – it looks delicious, Thanks!!

  2. This looks so good! There is nothing better than having the house smell like fresh bread

  3. I do bake bread from scratch but I find my bread maker is a time saver for me.

  4. I love making bread from scratch! I find that it is so much tastier and it is not as hard as everyone thinks! This looks like a fabulous recipe.

  5. Man that looks SO good! I love honey oat bread, gonna have to add this to the list to make! Pinning so I can remember for later!!!

  6. I absolutely love fresh bread! I would seriously love to try this recipe out! I love the taste of honey in bread.

  7. I have never baked bread from scratch… well, unless you count banana bread, but only easy versions. This looks SO GOOD!!!!

  8. When I try making bread from scratch it usually ends up being as hard as a brick..like I could kill someone with it!

  9. I love that there is no yeast in this. Having to wait for bread dough to rise is why I never bake it! I could definitely do this though!

  10. I am one of those people who can follow a recipe for dinner or lunch easily but I struggle with baking! BUT, my MIL bakes all the time, which is why I love this recipe. I am totally asking her to bake it for us.

  11. Wow that looks so good! I haven’t ever made a bread without yeast. I love honey oat bread, going to save this recipe to try next time I’m baking.

  12. oh that looks yummy, looks like it would go great with a nice glass of milk!

  13. This looks so yummy and moist! I used to make bread a couple of years ago, it was so good! I would add dried sweet potato flakes and a splash of oj for wheat bread.. made it unbelievably good!

  14. This honey oat bread looks so yummy! I love making healthy foods for my 2 granddaughters. I think they will enjoy this snack especially with the chocolate spread. Thanks for the recipe! 🙂

  15. I usually buy the oat break in stores, never tried making my own from scratch but might have to give this one a try. Loos delish! Best its really good toasted.

  16. This sounds yummy! I’ve been making biscuits (did so today, too), and using whole grains and other add ins – 2 c flour (1 cup whole wheat and a combination of other flours) 1/3 c oil, 2/3 c milk, scant tbsp baking powder, 1 tbsp sweetener, 2 tsp. salt. I often get the ingredients together the night before and make them in the morning, doesn’t take long. Can add in all kinds of goodies. I knead it for a minute, flatten it, then put it in the pan, cut with a cutter into desired biscuit shape, put top on pan and let brown on one side, turn over and brown on other.

  17. I’ve never made Honey Oat Bread before. However, after seeing yours – I’m definitely going to have to now. Thanks for the recipe.
