- 2 packages (1/2 ounce each) active dry yeast
- 1 large egg
- 4 to 5 cups all-purpose flour

Reviews for No-Knead Honey Oatmeal Bread
"I used 4.5 tsp of yeast (2.25 tsp. in each yeast pkg). and I think it is the correct amount."
"VERY good bread!! and could not be easier to make. It turned out soft, buttery and sweet ... perfect!"
"Did it turn out OK with the 2 packets of yeast?"
"Can't help but wonder if the quantity of yeast is correct 2 package 1/2 ounce each, should it be 1/4 ounce each?! Will follow up to advise if bread turned out right (I used a total of 5 tsp of yeast)"
