Honey Oat Bread



I love fresh bread, who doesn’t?  There is just something about bread out of the oven that makes it better than anything else.  So when I saw this recipe in Bon Appetit, I was sold.   There is NO KNEADING!!!  Yes you read that right, this bread is amazing and there is no kneading involved.  Yes there is yeast,  but still, the kneading is the worst part for me.  I never do it long enough, or too long, it is always a struggle. 

I made this when we had some friends over the other night.  Everyone loved it.  The kids all had multiple slices too!  It was light, with a little bit of sweet, it was just perfect.  And it has Oatmeal in it, so it has to be healthy, right?  I am always hearing how I should eat more Oats!  This calls for all-purpose flour which is what I used.  Next time I think I will try ½ all purpose, ½ whole wheat.  My husband said it would be a good bread to mix in some nuts into. 

Honey-Oat Bread
Recipe from Bon Appetit

1 ¾ cup warm water
1 Tbls Active Dry Yeast
¾ cups quick-cooking oats
1/3 cup honey
3 Tbls Canola Oil
2 ½ tsp salt
5 cups (about) all purpose flour
1 large egg, beaten
2 Tbls additional oats

Sprinkle the yeast over the water, and let set for 10 minutes until frothy.  In a large bowl mix together the oats, honey, oil and salt, and the water.  Stir in enough of the flour to form a soft dough (I started with 4 ½ cups and went from there).  Coat a large bowl with non-stick spray.  Transfer dough the bowl and turn it over to coat.  Cover with plastic wrap and then a kitchen towel.  Let rise for about 1 hour, or until doubled in volume.

 
Punch the dough down, and shape into 2 loaves.  I just free formed 2 loaves on a baking sheet.  But you could use loaf pans if you wanted (this is actually what the recipe calls for).  Cover and let rise for 20 minutes. 

 
Brush the top of the loaves with egg, and sprinkle with the additional oats.  Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes.  When you knock on the bottom of the bread and it sounds hollow, it is done. 

Top with butter, or honey for a delicious side to any meal!

This is a good way to make bread. I love oats and seeds on my bread. I bet is smelled so good straight out of the oven.

I have yet to use oats in bread making-but this one does look light and tasty. Thanks for sharing!

I love the rich and hearty quality that oats give bread. Without weighing the slices down on a sandwich, or making it taste like cardboard, they seem to add a unique depth and (of course) such rich nutrition. So perfect. So lovely.

Yum! I gave this recipe a spin earlier today (and blogged about it here), and I was not disappointed. I don't think my neighbors, to whom I gave the second loaf, will be disappointed, either. :-)

This bread looks gorgeous! I should try this one. So far I've only used oats in my apple bread, but there are too many other flavors there. I am now curious to isolate the oats and see what an oat bread tastes like :-)

I can hardly believe that this is no knead! Sounds like a must try for me - it looks gorgeous!

Great job on the bread.I don't like the kneading part either. This sounds like a recipe that I must try. Thanks for sharing.

Oh, this has my name all over it. I don't mind the kneading, but I can't stand the flour all over the kitchen and the time-consumingness of it all. I can't wait to give this a try.

Oh My GOD! I just saw this recipe in my book last night and I was just wondering how it would turn out. Just exactly and perfectly how I imagine it... minus the killer aroma :(

No knead bread just sounds too good not to try! It's interesting that you added the flour to the liquid rather than the other way round, maybe that's why it looked so fluffy. Definitely will try making this.

Oh, I've been looking for a honey oat recipe to try, too...we must be on the same wavelength with our baking lists! Yours looks wonderful~
