This easy oat bread doesn’t require any kneading at all. It’s simple and flavorful, a recipe that you’ll be eager to make again week after week.


  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted, for brushing (28.35 grams)
  • 1 1/4 cups warm water (105-115˚F) (295.73 grams)
  • 2 teaspoons active dry yeast (one packet, 7 grams)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons honey (26.45 grams)
  • 1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour (120 grams)
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour (113 grams)
  • 1 cup rolled oats (not instant) (90 grams)
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt (15 grams)


  1. Grease a 9-by-5-inch loaf pan with melted butter.
  2. Add warm water to a medium bowl. Sprinkle the yeast over the warm water and stir until yeast dissolves. Stir in honey and set aside for about 5 to 10 minutes, until the yeast swells and foams.
  3. In a separate large bowl, add both types of flour, the oats, and the salt. Stir to combine.
  4. Stir dry ingredients into wet ingredients until well combined.
  5. Add dough to the prepared pan. Cover with a clean cloth, then set in a warm place for 30 minutes until it has doubled in size.
  6. Meanwhile, position rack in middle of the oven and preheat oven to 350˚F.
  7. Bake bread for 35 to 40 minutes, until golden and pulling away from the sides of the pan.
  8. Remove from oven and turn out immediately onto a cooling rack. Cool slightly, until cool enough to handle, and serve warm.
