  • Yield: Yields: 1 7-inch round loaf (serving size: 1/8 of loaf)
  • Prep time: 12 Minutes
  • Bake: 1 Hour
  • Cost Per Serving:$.61


  • 2 cups plus 2 Tbsp. old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 cups whole milk


1. Preheat oven to 400ºF. Line a baking sheet with parchment.

2. Place 2 cups oats in food processor; process until finely ground. Transfer to large bowl and whisk in flour, baking powder and salt. Toss in raisins. Add honey and milk to bowl with dry ingredients and mix with a rubber spatula until just moistened.

3. Scrape down sides of bowl, shape dough into a ball and transfer to baking sheet. With well-floured hands, pat gently into a 7-inch round and sprinkle evenly with remaining 2 Tbsp. oats. Using a very sharp knife, cut a shallow X in top of loaf.
