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.

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.

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!

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.

Yum!

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.
