For the Bread:

  • 1 cup whole milk
  • ¼ cup water
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 2 tablespoon unsalted butter softened
  • 1 packet instant rapid rise yeast
  • 1 ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup rolled oats
  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ cups whole wheat flour
  • ½ teaspoon oil


  • 3 tablespoon honey
  • ⅛ - ¼ cup rolled oats


  • Combine milk and water in a small saucepan and heat to 110 degrees.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, add the honey, butter, yeast and salt and oats. Pour the milk and water into the stand mixer and let stand for 5 minutes.
  • Add in the all-purpose flour and whole wheat flour and mix on low speed until just combined, then switch to a dough hook and mix on medium speed for 7-10 minutes or until the dough is smooth and elastic.
  • Add oil to a large bowl and smear with a paper towel to coat. Turn out the dough into the bowl, turn over to cover in oil, then cover the bowl with a kitchen towel or plastic wrap and place in a warm location until the dough doubles in size, about 1 hour.
  • Place a piece of parchment into a loaf pan, leaving excess on the edges to easily remove.
  • Lightly flour a workspace and turn out the dough. Roll into a 9×13 rectangle and place into the prepared loaf pan, tucking the ends under. Cover and let rest for 45 minutes.
  • Once rested, preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Add the topping honey to a microwave safe dish and microwave for 30 seconds or until just able to be easily drizzled.
  • Drizzle the honey on top of the dough and sprinkle the rolled oats on top.
  • Bake for 45-50 minutes or until lightly golden.
  • Remove from the oven and place loaf pan on a wire rack. Let cool for 15 minutes, then remove bread from the loaf pan and continue cooling on the wire rack.
