HONEY OATMEAL BREAD
Being that I am gluten free, it might seem a little strange how much I make homemade bread, but I just love working with predictable, soft, pliable dough.
It’s familiar and I don’t have to have a chemistry minor to figure out how to make it, like gluten free bread can require.
My kids love this bread so much that they will ask for seconds of it instead of dessert. It’s airy, a touch sweet from the honey, and has a great spongy crumb.
Plus it’s so fast and easy to throw together in a KitchenAid mixer or Bosch Mixer.
If you are a serious bread maker, your life will be forever changed with a Bosch Mixer. KitchenAid mixers will definitely get the job done, especially if you have a larger sized one.
However, if you make a lot of bread in it, you will eventually burn out the motor. A Bosch Mixer is like the indestructible army tank of kitchen appliances. It is worth every penny and you will forever be indebted to the German geniuses who made them. Happy bread making!

Honey Oatmeal Bread
- Combine oats, butter, boiling water, and salt. Cool to lukewarm (about 20 minutes).
- Stir in yeast. Add 2 eggs, honey, and 3 cups flour. Mix well.
- With dough hook on, add remaining flour until dough is smooth and clears the side of the bowl while mixing. The dough should be easy too handle and not too sticky to the touch. Knead about 8-10 minutes with dough hook.
- Place in greased bowl, and turn dough over so it is greased on all sides. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 60-90 minutes.
- Divide into two even balls and shape into two 5 1/2 X 9 inch greased bread pans. Cover and let rise again until doubled, about 60 minutes.
- In a small bowl whisk an additional egg with 1 tbsp. water. Brush over loaves and sprinkle with whole oats. Bake at 350ºF for 25-35 minutes or until loaf sounds hollow when tapped. Remove from pans immediately and cool.
