Honey Oat Bread - The Southern Lady Cooks

This Honey Oat Bread is easy to make and absolutely delicious. It has a wonderful taste and the texture is great too. We love it right out of the oven with butter and honey. It’s is great to enjoy with a cup of coffee in the morning and keeps well. We love the addition of oats to this quick bread. If you have followed our site for any amount of time you know we love quick bread recipes. So nice make a delicious loaf of bread in about an hour. No need to wait for your bread to rise and all that. Don’t get me wrong we love our yeast breads too and sourdough but quick breads are a time saver.

Honey Oat Bread Simple Ingredients:

Whole wheat flour

All-purpose flour


Baking powder

Old fashioned rolled oats




Cooking oil

Delicious ingredients that many of you will have on hand which makes this bread perfect. Nothing worse than having to run to the store for something you have never heard of, this bread is super simple and so good. We also love it with our super easy cinnamon honey butter!

If you only want honey butter you can make up this easy recipe for honey butter spread:

1 stick butter or 1/2 cup
1/3 cup honey

Microwave butter about 12 seconds to soften the butter.  Add the honey and beat with electric mixer about a minute until smooth. Keep in the refrigerator. Great on biscuits, bread, pancakes, etc.

Recipe Feedback:

“I thought this recipe sounded so good, especially when you mentioned using molasses…I made it today subbing the molasses in place of the honey and adding 1/4 c sugar…oh my goodness! It is delicious! Thanks for the recipe!” – Shelia

“Wow I can’t believe how healthy this recipe is, and it’s delicious. I added 2 tsp cinnamon and made 3 mini loaves—took 30 minutes. Careful not to overfill your pans; these babies rise high due to 1 tbsp of baking powder. Eating it warm or toasted is a must, IMO. I think it’s best served warm with butter and/or honey on top. Just a drizzle of honey and butter will probably work and make it a real treat! I’ll have to keep in mind using molasses instead of honey idea. That sounds great, too! Your recipes are so simple yet reflect a lot of love.” – Anu
