Apiece of good quality, really fresh bread is in my top 5 favorite foods of all time. Toasted slightly, smeared with butter, and sprinkled with sea salt. Now we’re talking. Sometimes the simplest things are the best.

No Yeast Bread

I rarelymake bread at home. I lack the patience necessary to work with yeast. But, when I recently saw a recipe for a Honey Oat Yeast Free Bread I was immediately sold. No kneading, no rising, no waiting! Sign me up!

This bread is filled with oats and white whole wheat flour and sweetened with honey. Low fat yogurt, low fat milk, and canola oil addmoisture. And although it resembles a loaf of sandwich bread, thetexture and flavor of this bread is different, since there is no yeast. Think: quick bread, not sandwich bread.

Honey Oat Bread

This bread has a lot going for it – itis tender and slightly dense with a fine crumb. The top of the loaf is golden brown and glistening with honey, and the interior is soft. It has a slight sweetness without being too sweet. Plus, it’s good for you, too!

  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons oats (old fashioned or quick), divided
  • 1 ⅓ cups white whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 ¼ teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 ¼ teaspoons salt
  • 1 scant cup plain yogurt, see note
  • 1 large egg
  • ¼ cup canola or vegetable oil
  • ¼ cup plus 1 tablespoon honey, divided
  • ¾ cup milk


  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Generously grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon oats in the pan. Tip the pan back and forth to coat the sides and bottom with oats.

  • In a large bowl, stir together white whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

  • In a separate bowl, use a fork to beat 1 cup oats, yogurt, egg, oil, and ¼ cup honey until well blended. Stir in milk. Gently stir the yogurt mixture into the flour mixture until thoroughly incorporated but not overmixed (excess mixing can cause toughening). Pour the batter into the pan, spreading evenly to the edges.

  • Bake the loaf in the center of the oven until golden brown on top and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 30 to 45 minutes (beginning checking at 30 minutes). Remove from the oven and place the pan on a wire rack. While the bread is still warm, gently brush the top of the loaf with 1 tablespoon of honey. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon oats. Allow to cool slightly. Serve warm.


Yogurt: This recipe mixes up best when it is made with regular yogurt (not Greek style). I find that the thickness of Greek yogurt makes the dough more dense. If you have only have Greek yogurt you can thin it out by stirring in a couple splashes of milk or water. Measure it after thinning it.

    Wow – I can’t believe this has no yeast. It looks so well “risen” – light and fluffy. Very impressive!


    • Celebrating Sweets

      Thanks, Patricia! It’s super easy too.


  2. jay

    This looks delish! We love oat bread-Does it matter what kind of milk you use?
    We drink whole milk.



    • Celebrating Sweets

      Hi Jay! Whole milk will be fine. Enjoy!

    Just wondering why you specify “no greek yogurt” since I’ve used that with quick breads before and is usually all I have in the fridge?




    • Celebrating Sweets

      Hi Katie. I thought that Greek yogurt would be too thick. The thinner quality of the regular yogurt made the dough easier to mix. You could totally try it with Greek yogurt, or you can even thin out your Greek yogurt with a splash of water or milk.


      • Katie

        Okay, thanks! That makes sense.

  4. Yvette

    Hello! Do you think this will work too using bread flour instead of wheat flour? Thanks!


    • Celebrating Sweets

      Hi Yvette. I would guess that it would be ok, but I can’t say for sure. If you try it, please let me know. Sorry I couldn’t be of more help.

    what if i dont have yogurt


    • Celebrating Sweets

      I don’t have a substitute for the yogurt. The recipe uses a cup, so it can’t be left out. Sour cream would be the closest substitute but I think it might be too thick and tangy. Best of luck if you play around with it.


      • Vivian E Bowdish

        Could I make my own suit cream w milk and lemon juice?

      • Celebrating Sweets

        Are you referring to the yogurt that the recipe calls for? You could try swapping the yogurt for sour cream diluted with some milk. It needs to be the consistency of regular yogurt (not too thick, not too watery).

  6. Lyndee Pfaffenbach

    Do you think the honey (or any sweetner) is necessary? Looking to make this for a special diet. Thanks!


    • Celebrating Sweets

      Hi Lyndee. I can’t say how it will be without the honey. If you do omit it, you might want to try replacing it with something that will add a little moisture and possibly some natural sweetness, maybe unsweetened applesauce? It will definitely be less sweet that way. Best of luck!


      • lara

        what about using sugar instead?

      • Celebrating Sweets

        I haven’t tried that so I can’t say for sure. It would probably be ok, but I really think the flavor and moisture that the honey adds is important. If you try it please let me know. Thanks for stopping by!

  7. Tammy Carson

    I don’t have wheat flour on hand….just all purpose. Would that be okay, and if so, how much since I would be leaving out the wheat flour? This looks really good and I’m hoping to try it soon.



    • Celebrating Sweets

      Hi, Tammy. Just use the same amount of all-purpose flour in exchange for the white whole wheat flour. It should work out just fine. Enjoy! 🙂


  8. Melissa

    Is the batter supposed to be pretty thick?



    • Celebrating Sweets

      Hi, Melissa. Yes, it is fairly thick.


  9. Minoo

    Can I use quick cooking oats instead of rolled oats and only wheat flour? Would the measurements be different?


    • Celebrating Sweets

      Hi! I can’t say for sure as I’ve never tried this recipe with those modifications. I would guess that swapping out the oats should be fine. If you use only wheat flour the bread will be much heavier, drier and possibly more dense than desired. The combo of white whole wheat flour and all purpose really helps to lighten the texture. If you use all wheat flour, you might want to reduce the flour measurement by about 1/4 cup. Best of luck if you try it!
