  • Add warm water, honey and yeast to a small bowl. Set it aside for 5-10 minutes until it is proofed (becomes frothy).
  • Add all wet ingredients (including yeast mixture) to the bowl of your kitchen aid mixer or to a regular bowl, mix well.
  • Add dry ingredients and knead with dough hook (or hands) for 5-10 minutes until dough is elastic and not sticky.
  • Oil a bowl and let the dough rise in a warm place, covered with a damp tea towel, until doubled in size.
  • Gently press the air out of the dough and transfer it to a greased 8” x 4” bread pan. Optional—press some rolled oats on top of your dough so it looks pretty after baking.
  • Cover your bread pan with a damp tea towel and put it in a warm place to rise until doubled (about 1 hour). During this rise, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Once dough has doubled in size, bake at 350 degrees F for 25-30 minutes until bread is lightly browned and makes a hollow sound when hit with a wooden spoon.
  • Remove from pan and set on a wire rack to cool. Cover bread with a towel to seal in moisture and make a soft crust.
