Molasses Oatmeal Bread

  • Author: Streusel
  • Prep Time: 70 minutes
  • Cook Time: 60 minutes
  • Total Time: 2 hours, 10 minutes
  • Yield: 1 loaf (about 10 slices) 1x


1 1/2 c. boiling water

1/2 c. molasses (I used Black Strap)

1 c. rolled oats

1/4 avocado oil

1 t. salt

1 packet active dry yeast

4 c. all-purpose flour


  1. Combine the boiling water, molasses and oats in a bowl of a stand-mixer and let sit until cool enough to add the yeast.  I waited about 15 minutes.
  2. Add the yeast, oil, salt and flour and knead with the hook for about 5 minutes.  The dough will still be slightly warm but won’t stick to the bowl anymore!
  3. Form into a small loaf and place in an oiled 9 x 5 inch loaf pan and cover with plastic wrap.
  4. Let sit in a slightly warm area for an hour.
  5. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit right before the hour rise time is up.
  6. Remove the plastic wrap and bake the loaf for 30 minutes, then turn off the oven and let the loaf still sit in the oven for another 30 minutes.
  7. Remove and let cool in the pan until completely cool.  I let my loaf cool all day while I was at work.
  8. The bread removed easily from the pan.  Slice and serve!
