Honey Oat Quick Bread

  • 1 C plus 2 T rolled oats, divided
  • 2 1/3 C  flour
  • 2 1/4 t baking powder
  • 1/4 t baking soda
  • 1 1/4 t salt
  • 8 oz. (scant 1 C) plain yogurt (we used vanilla)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 C olive oil
  • 1/4 C honey
  • 3/4 C milk

Generously coat a loaf pan with oil.  Sprinkle 1 T oats in the pan.  Tip the pan back and forth to coat the bottom with oats.  Position rack in middle of oven; preheat to 375 degrees.  Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl.  Using a fork, beat the remaining 1 C oats, yogurt, egg, oil, and honey in a large bowl until well blended.  Stir in milk.  Gently stir the flour mixture into the yogurt mixture just until thoroughly incorporated but not over mixed.  Immediately scrape the batter into the pan, spreading evenly to the edges.  Sprinkle the remaining 1 T oats over the top.  Bake the loaf until well browned on top and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 55 minutes.  It is normal for the top to crack.  Let stand in the pan on a wire rack for 15 minutes.  Run a table knife around the loaf to loosen it and turn it out onto the rack.  Let cool until barely warm, about 45 minutes.
