This honey-oat bread has a pleasant flavor and divinely moist, tender crumb. It requires minimal mixing and cleanup, calls for ingredients usually stocked in the pantry, and is tasty yet healthful.

"I've always been intimidated to make bread but this recipe looked easy, delicious and healthy- so I gave it a try.... It turned out to be all three! I was so proud of my first loaf of bread made ever, that I took pictures! It tasted...

Not at all what I expected

I was expecting a result resembling a regular loaf of bread (i.e. a loaf that I could slice and use as toast and/or sandwiches). Instead this more closely resembles a banana bread. In fact, that's exactly what it resembles. A dessert loaf. Like a banana bread or zucchini loaf. It has the same texture, density, etc. However, in contrast, it's not sweet like a dessert bread. That's what's throwing me off. It has the consistency/texture of a dessert bread but the taste of a regular loaf of bread that would be used for sandwiches. I don't quite know what to make of it, or do with it. I don't feel like I can serve it as a dessert loaf as it lacks the necessary sweetness (imagine serving regular bread as a desert) and I feel I can't use it for sandwiches as it'll crumble and fall apart (imagine trying to use banana bread to build a sandwich). On the up side, it's super moist, and looks lovely. Very impressive looking actually. And the house smelt amazing as it was baking. I think if it was sweeter it could make a lovely dessert loaf. Add some cinnamon or other spices in there too. As it stands, it's a bit too bland for a dessert bread/loaf, and it certainly isn't meant as a regular loaf of table bread. As it stands, I don't know what I'm going to do with this loaf....perhaps serve it with butter (in place of biscuits) to have with soup...Yeah, I think that could work.

My Results of Honey Oat Quick Bread
Moist & delicious!

Love the flavor, the texture is moist and is healthy! Super easy to bake. It's a keeper! My hubby love it! Im sure I'll be baking this many times...

Easy, quick, yummy
Just out of the oven! ;)
Easy but so-so flavor

No kneading or rising is required, which makes it very quick and easy to make. But this means using a lot of baking powder, so it ends up tasting kind of like drop biscuits instead of bread. I was not a huge fan of the flavor- not bad, but there are certainly recipes for better tasting oatmeal bread out there. But if you're in a hurry or don't feel like kneading, it'll do the trick.

Very quick and easy bread

Mine didn't really rise as well as the picture loaf, but I may have just used a wider pan. I also subbed the plain yogurt for plain greek yogurt, maybe this changed it? But it was very delicious and only 1 Points Plus for Weight Watchers per slice!

Very Moist

I don't think it was the

I don't think it was the greek yogurt that kept it from rising. I tried mine with blueberry greek yogurt and cut the honey and oil by about half. It turned out great! Love this recipe.

I tried it with greek yogurt

I tried it with greek yogurt this time around too. I didn't notice a difference in the rise of the bread. Turned out delicious as always.


Great addition to my soup. It's slightly sweet, moist, and crumbly.
I used a 6oz cup of light vanilla yogurt, because I didn't want to buy a whole tub of plain yogurt, and it turned out great!
Will be making this again.

Quick and easy to make.
