Honey Oatmeal Bread

Posted on

I made this last night, because I like honey whole wheat bread, but I was also in possession of a container of oats. Unlike a lot of food bloggers, I actually don’t like oatmeal. I know, I know. I’m a freak. Anyway, so I figured, putting the oats in bread would be a nice use of them. The bread tastes great, but I wasn’t really factoring in the honey when I baked it, so it darkened more than I would like. Next time I would cover it with foil for part of the baking. I like breads with a faint sweetness to them.
