No-Knead Honey Oatmeal Bread Recipe

We especially enjoy this tasty bread because we feel using honey as a natural sweetener means healthier eating. We use the bread for both toast and sandwiches. It's great during the holidays, too...or, for that matter, anytime!
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. + rising Bake: 40 min. + cooling YIELD:32 servings


  • 2 cups water, divided
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 2 packages (1/2 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 1 large egg
  • 4 to 5 cups all-purpose flour
  • Melted butter, optional


  • 1. In a small saucepan, heat 1 cup water to boiling. Stir in the oats, butter, honey and salt. Let stand until mixture cools to 110°-115°, stirring occasionally. Heat remaining water to 110°-115°.
  • 2. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the egg, oat mixture and 2 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a stiff dough.
  • 3. Spread batter evenly into two greased 8x4-in. loaf pans. Smooth tops of loaves. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 35-40 minutes.
  • 4. Bake at 375° for 40-45 minutes. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool. Brush with melted butter if desired. Yield: 2 loaves (12 slices each).

"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)"
