Anything Goes Oatmeal Bread

From the collection


This recipe is adapted from one on the blog Homesick Texan.


2 cups whole milk
1 cup oats (any kind but instant)
½ cup warm water (about 100 degrees)
Tbsp. yeast
2 tsp. sea salt
1 egg
½ cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
½ cup honey
cups flour (any mix of whole wheat and unbleached white)


  1. Place oats in a large mixing bowl. Bring milk just to the boiling point, watching carefully. Pour the milk over the oats. Let sit 1 to 2 hours, depending on how coarse your oats are.
  2. Mix yeast and warm water in a small bowl until yeast dissolves. Mix yeast, water, and all remaining ingredients in with the oat/milk mixture.
  3. In two greased loaf pans or on a piece of floured parchment paper, gently form dough into loaves with wet hands. Let sit at room temperature for about one hour.
  4. Heat oven to 350 degrees, using baking stone if you have one. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, until bread is hard when you tap on top crust. Remove from oven and enjoy.
