Recipe: Honey Oat Bread

If you follow me on Facebook, you probably already know I was seeking recipes to try in my bread machine. I tried Jenny’s bread and it is delish!

This is a recipe for Honey Oat Bread courtesy of Jenny at DIY Parenting.

Note from Jenny: This recipe is for a 2 pound loaf. I usually put most of it into a greased bread loaf pan, but rip off a small amount to make 2-3 dinner rolls out of it. Otherwise the loaf can get pretty big. Plus we enjoy snacking on the warm dinner rolls, fresh from the oven!

12-14 ounces warm water
2 and 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons honey
1 and 3/4 teaspoons salt
2 and 1/2 cups bread flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
2/3 cup oats (either whole & quick cook work well)
1/4 cup wheat germ (if you don’t have, just use more wheat flour instead)
2 and 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast or 1 packet

Add ingredients to bread machine in the order they are listed. Set machine to “dough” setting. When finished, bake loaf (and dinner rolls) in a 400 degree oven. Remove rolls after 10 minutes; loaf will take an additional 15 minutes (total of 25 minutes) in oven. You could bake this right in your bread machine, I just find that my machine tends to dry out my bread so I prefer the oven.
