To Honey Oat Quick Bread

It’s sweet, it’s savory, it’s everything I have ever asked for in bread. Or at least bread that has honey and oat in its title.

Ohh and it’s super quick.

Pairs well with a salad. Looks pretty on your counter. Makes you feel like Peeta’s dad and you can call yourself a bread maker for a day.

It fulfills one’s desire to take lots of pictures of a loaf of bread.

Oh and we will contribute my awesome run today to it’s super-fast enhancing powers.

Honey Oat Quick Bread | Insatiably

Recipe from Kristine’s Kitchen / Sweet Pea’s Kitchen

1 1/3 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup all purpose flour
2 1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. cinnamon
1 cup plain greek yogurt
1 large egg
1/4 cup canola oil

Honey Oat Quick Bread | Insatiably

1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Generously coat a 9-by-5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray.
Sprinkle 1 tablespoon oats in the pan and tip the pan back and forth to coat the sides and bottom
with oats. (Instead of sprinkling the oats, I lined the greased pan with baking parchment for an easier bread removal).
2. In a large bowl, whisk together the whole wheat flour, all purpose flour, baking powder, baking
soda, salt, and cinnamon; set aside.
3. In a medium bowl, whisk together 1 cup oats, yogurt, egg, oil, and honey until well blended.
Stir in the milk. Gently stir the yogurt mixture into the flour mixture until thoroughly
incorporated, but do not overmix. Scrape the batter into the pan, spreading evenly. Sprinkle the
remaining 1 tablespoon oats over the top. (I used 2 tablespoons on top since I didnt use the tablespoon of oats to coat the pan)
4. Bake until well browned on top and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 40 to 50
minutes. Let stand in the pan on a wire rack for 15 minutes. Use a knife to loosen the bread (I baked for 40 minutes at 375 but noticed the top was getting a tad dark so lowered the oven temp to 300 and baked another 5 min)

Let cool in the pan for about 10 min and then remove and cool for another 45 minutes before slicing and serving.

  1. I’ve been really wanting to make more homemade breads and this one looks so simple to put together. I love the oats on top! I can’t wait to give it a try (plus, if it will help me run faster – that’s a huge bonus!) 🙂

    • I definitely recommend this recipe! It is quite simple and has already passed roommate approval (: Now I may have to eat a few more slices pre-run before I can confirm the added speed but you won’t hear me complaining.
