I love this recipe. The oats give it a really good taste, and I use wheat flour for some wheat taste. If you don't enjoy wheat flour, you can use all white flour and it is still delicious. I use my bread maker to make the dough, then form it into a loaf. You don't have to use a bread machine, I've done it by hand; the machine just makes it quicker with kids in the kitchen under my feet. Preparation time includes the bread machine dough cycle, mine is about one hour.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put ingredient in bread maker in the order listed above. Set to dough cycle. Check to see if a good ball is forming; if needed add a teaspoon of water or flour at a time to get a good dough ball.
  2. At the end of the dough cycle, form a loaf and put in lightly sprayed bread pan. Cover, and let raise for about 45 minutes to an hour.
  3. Bake at 350 for 45-50 minutes, depending on your oven.
  4. After removing from oven, lightly spread melted butter on the top crust with pastry brush (optional; gives it a nice look and flavor).

I love this bread! I have tried lots of bread machine recipes recently and this so far is my favorite! I do not like sweet sandwich bread so I decreased the honey to 1 T and left the salt as called for in the recipe. Next time I will add some sunflower seeds for some crunch. It was just to my liking for sandwiches, a hint of salt and not too sweet. I might make it with all the honey if I was going to use it for french toast or something, though. Excellent bread. Oh yeah, I didn't bake it in the oven--I don't have time for that last step, so I just baked it in the bread machine and the crust turned out crispy. Yum!

I was wanting some homemade bread so, started to do a search that would use the ingredients I had on hand.When I came across this one, and decided to make it.Since wheat bread isn't a particular favorite around here,all white flour was used.After reading CarrolJ's review the salt was reduced to 1 teaspoon and continued on with the recipe as it was written.After placing in the prepared loaf pan,I let it rise for 1 hour and it just rose wonderfully. Baked at the temp. suggested in Step 3 for about 30 minutes and it was perfect.Thank you for posting a recipe that will be made again." Keep Smiling :) "

I was a little disappointed in this recipe although I think i know why. It tasted a little salty to me. I love salt...but I discovered not in bread. Next time I will decrease the salt to using only 1 teaspoon. I think that perhaps the baking soda + 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt caused the problem. I also used all bread flour since I don't care for the taste of wheat flour. I will make this recipe again and hope for better results.
