Copycat Longhorn Steakhouse Honey Oat Bread

Copycat Longhorn Steakhouse Honey Oat Bread – I first posted this recipe back in 2011 & it spread like wildfire thru the internet dubbed as ‘copycat longhorns bread’. It deserved a replay! 

It’s no secret that I love to bake bread… and of course, eat it.

I first posted the recipe for my Honey Oat Bread back in 2011. It quickly spread around the internet, dubbed as ‘copycat Longhorn Steakhouse bread’. I didn’t even realize it tasted like it… especially being that I rarely ever go there.

Since everyone kept saying how much it tasted like the bread served at Longhorn’s, I had to see for myself. So a while back, I dined at Longhorns solely because I wanted to try their bread and compare it to mine. I did order food, don’t worry. I didn’t go in there just for the free bread and say ‘See Ya!’ after I indulged haha.

The verdict? My Honey Oat Bread does taste like the bread served at Longhorns – just a little bit better if I do say so myself. (Toot toot! You hear that? That’s my own horn I just tooted).

So since it does in fact taste like their bread, I had to go back to the older post and officially add that into the description haha. I also had to repost it brand new because – hey, that was 7 years ago. We need a refresher!

I make this all the time. Like once a week. It’s our go-to bread (I mean, other than biscuits… nothing can replace biscuits though. Whole different level!)

Sometimes I switch it up a little by adding some buttermilk. It’s kinda crazy when you use buttermilk in how much it affects the taste & texture. It rises to twice the size and the flavor has a little more tang to it. You can tell in the picture below what that one substitution does in the appearance. I make it with water 70% of the time – water is obviously cheaper than buttermilk! But when I have extra buttermilk that needs to be used up or want a tangier & fluffier bread, I go with the buttermilk.

My favorite way to eat it? Straight outta the oven with a little butter, baby! YUM. It’s also really good dredged in some good quality olive oil.

I make mine in my bread machine – if you don’t have one – I have a guide on converting bread machine recipes to by hand. You can find it by clicking here.
