  • 2 1/2-2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 2 (0.25 ounce) packages active dry yeast
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 5 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1 large egg, room temperature


Step 1 –Grease a 9×13-inch baking pan.

Step 2 –In a large bowl, mix 1 cup of the all-purpose flour, the whole wheat flour, the oats, the yeast and the salt.

Step 3 –In a small saucepan, heat the water, the honey and 4 tablespoons of the butter to 120-130 degrees F.

Step 4 –Add the warm honey mixture to the dry mixture. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes.
