A Sweet Treat–Honey Oat Bread

GF Honey Oat Bread-2

This is a rustic loaf of bread but its so good toasted! Its not hard to make either.  It doesn’t rise much higher than the pan so don’t fret if that is the case. It isn’t a “sandwich” type bread.  It is just a sweet treat for you and your family.

I have an open-concept kitchen so it is often hard to find a draft-free, warm place to let bread rise.  I have found that if I preheat the oven to 200 degrees F and turn the oven off as soon as it gets to temperature, my bread will rise on the back of the stove.  If it is really cold or I’m going to be using the range, I put the bread to rise inside the oven (now turned off).  This allows the bread to rise fairly quickly, just keep an eye on it!

Don’t forget to put just a little honey and oats on the top of this bread before you bake it.  The oats toast and the honey sinks into the loaf–so good!

Honey Oat Bread

Honey Oat Bread

  • 1 cup Positively Free Instant Oats (plus 1 tablespoon for topping of bread)
  • 1 cup warm milk-110 degrees F (I used almond milk)
  • 1/4 cup honey (spray the measure with baking spray to make honey release easily)

  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter (melted and cooled to room temperature)
