No-Knead Honey Oat Bread

No-Knead Honey Oat Bread

Why buy bread from the store? Make it yourself.

Who doesn't love hot homemade bread? It always takes me back to being a child when mom would pull it out of the oven and the whole house smelled delicious!
We took care of foster children for 15 years. I had a caseworker that would come every Wednesday to get it hot right out of the oven and enjoyed eating a slice or two with peanut butter. I love it right from the oven with melted butter.
I have made many loaves of bread and rolls through the years. This Homemade No Knead Honey Oat Bread is a favorite and tastes so YUMMY! You have to try it.
This recipe is so easy to make. No overnight rising, and no kneading! We love to toast it for breakfast and it also makes a fabulous sandwich for lunch.
It is one of the easiest bread recipes you’ll ever make and is always melt-in-your-mouth delicious every single time you make it.

Unsalted butter
