Honey Whole Wheat Bread (tastes like Great Harvest)

1 large loaf
1 1/2 TBSP instant yeast
2 cups very warm water
1/3 cup honey
3-4 cups whole wheat flour (or 5-5 1/2 cups freshly ground flour)
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/8-1/2 cup add-ins (oats, ground flax, sunflower seeds etc)

2 large loafs + 1 medium loaf
3 tablespoons yeast
4 cups very warm water
1/2-3/4 cup honey
7-8  cups whole wheat flour (or 10-11 cups freshly ground flour)
3 teaspoons sea salt
1/4-1 cups add-ins

Combine yeast, water and honey; let sit for 5 minutes or until frothy and bubbly.  Add salt, add-ins and  1 1/2 cups of flour. Mix. Continue mixing while adding remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, until you get a soft dough.  The dough should barely pull away from the sides of the bowl and it will still be a little sticky.  Knead for 4 minutes on low, cover and let rise until doubled (15-25 minutes) .  Punch down (punch for about 20-30 seconds) and shape into a large loaf (spray hands with cooking spray).  Put in a greased loaf pan and let rise again until doubled (30-45 minutes).  Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

Since Utah is so dry, I often put the covered dough in the microwave with a bowl of hot water to help it rise.
