Easy to bake homemade honey oat bread is free of processed sugar. It is perfectly deliciously and slightly sweetened with a bit of natural honey.
Honey Oat Bread
This bread recipe is a hit with my entire family, can easily be made and kneaded in a stand mixer or by hand – totally your preference.
I thoroughly enjoy kneading by hand, but sometimes we don’t always have the time for that. I usually make a loaf about once or twice a week because my family likes it that much.
Around our home, we try to avoid as many processed or sugar filled foods as possible and since sugar is found in nearly everything, including bread, I bake my own.

Tips for Making this Bread
When making this bread, I usually use whole milk. But I have also had success with using nut milks like almond and coconut.
I like to hand knead bread so I can get a feel for when it is ready. But sometimes, I’m pressed for time so I will use my stand mixer with the dough hook.
It is important to stop and check it periodically when using a stand mixer to ensure it isn’t being kneaded too much.
When baking this loaf, check on it every now and then. I recommend “babysitting” homemade bread. It isn’t something that you can just throw in the oven and call it good.
Oven times vary for most people. If the bread starts to brown on one side more than the other, rotate it.
