Honey-Oat Bread

Okay, so these loaves weren’t perfectly shaped but they were perfectly delicious. I almost forgot how good bread is straight from the oven! So hot, moist and fresh. This is a timeless recipe from my mom and the very smell of it warms my heart.Β 

Please don’t judge these pictures too harshly until you’ve tried taking pictures while eating a warm slice of bread with melted butter! =) Because that was me today…. I couldn’t wait.

And, I may or may not have had more than one slice.

This recipe makes 4 loaves and 7 hrs later there’s only half of one left. Haha. (You should know it wasn’t all me!)

Somehow this picture reminds me of myself…. not sure what the similarity would be? Maybe the way he’s taking that big bite! Waste no time, little boy. #Likemamalikeson
