Honey Oat Wheat Bread

I love homemade bread, especially homemade wheat bread and this is my favorite recipe.

1 Tb. Active Dry Yeast
2 1/4 C. Warm Water
3 Tb. Canola Oil
3 T. Honey
1 Egg
5 Tb. Rolled Oats
3 C. Whole Wheat Flour
2 tsp. Salt
2 1/2-3 C. White Bread Flour

Grease two loaf pans, set aside.  Combine the yeast & warm water, cover and let stand for 10 minutes.  In a large bowl mix oil, honey egg, oats, whole wheat flour, salt; add yeast mixture.  Mix dough to a wet spongy consistency about 2 minutes.  Cover and let rise 20 minutes or until you see little bubbles and doubled. 

Gradually add the white bread flour.  Knead by hand about 5 minutes (kneading by hand gets the air out better).  Place dough in a greased bowl and cover with plastic.  Let rise 30-40 minutes. 

After dough has doubled in size punch down and knead briefly then divide in half.  Shape two loaves, place in greased pans.  (Optional-you may lightly grease the tops of dough and sprinkle with oats.) Cover with a clean towel and let rise 45-60 minutes.  Preheat over to 350 and bake for 30-35 minutes.  Place on wire rack and let cool completely.
