My girls absolutely adore honey. It’s the only sweetener they’re allowed on a daily basis, usually a drop or two stirred into their daily afternoon tea. They line up with a little spoon and I give them an extra drop to sweeten their little tastebuds. One day while enjoying their tea, my three year old asked me how come we couldn’t make honey bread. I told her I couldn’t think of a single reason why we shouldn’t, and so our honey oat bread idea was formulated…
Sweetened with honey and brown sugar, this bread is made extra moist with the addition of melted butter and a few dollops of greek yogurt. Throw in some oats, and you’ve got a pretty great loaf of sweet bread. Perfect for afternoon tea!
