I baked my family's bread for years and have tried multiple recipes, but I always gravitate back to Honey Oatmeal Bread. So delicious!

Yields100 Servings
Cook Time30 mins

 2 ½ cups boiling water
 2 cups quick oats
 2 tbsp yeast
 1 cup warm water
 1 cup honey
 ¾ cup vegetable oil
 4 Nature's Yoke eggs, beaten
 2 tbsp salt
 8 cups flour (best to use at least 2 cups of whole wheat flour)

1

Pour boiling water over the oatmeal and set aside. Cool until lukewarm.

2

Dissolve yeast in the warm water. Set aside.

3

Mix together the honey, oil, eggs and salt, then add the yeast mixture. Add this mixture to the softened oatmeal.

4

Add the desired amount of whole wheat flour then knead in enough white flour to make a spongy dough that is not sticky. Let rise until double in size.

5

Knead and let rise again to double. Shape into five loaves, place in greased bread pans and let rise again. Bake at 350 degrees F. for 25-30 minutes, depending on loaf size.
