Honey Oat Quick Bread that is inspired by The Handmaid's Tale! This bread has a combination of bread flour and oats. There is a hint of sweetness from the honey. This Honey Oat Quick Bread has the added bonus of being made from scratch and baked in about 90 minutes. So fellow, carb lovers, let's bake! See the video on my YouTube Channel for the step-by-step demonstration!
First, activate your yeast and set aside. Do this by combining the warm water and yeast.
Then, stir together melted butter and honey. Add to yeast mixture.
In a large bowl, Combine the flour, salt, and oats. Start with 2 1/2 cups of flour.
Add the yeast mixture.
Use a wooden spoon to form a dough ball.
Turn onto a floured surface.
If dough is too wet, add more bread flour by doing this 1 tablespoon at a time.
Knead for 10 minutes by hand or using the dough hook of your stand mixer.
Then shape into a loaf. Put into a buttered loaf pan. Let rise for 20 minutes.
Drizzle on honey and sprinkle oats on top. Then bake for 45-50 minutes in a 350 degree preheated oven.
