Honey Whole Wheat Bread

5 ingredients, that's all it takes to make this fantastic whole wheat bread. Perfect as sandwich bread,  the nutty whole wheat pairs perfectly with spicy mustard, or peanut butter.

1 1/2 tablespoons instant yeast
2 cups warm water
1/3 cup honey
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
4 cups whole wheat flour (this is approximate)

Mix the yeast, warm water, honey, and salt in a bowl. Let the bowl sit for about 5 minutes to let the yeast bloom.

Add the whole wheat flour, and knead the bread. Add flour until the dough barely comes off the sides of the bowl. You will need to really knead this bread (5 minutes of continues kneading in a mixer, more if done by hand). This will develop the gluten, and make sure the bread keeps it's structure.

Let the bread double in volume in the bowl, and then beat the bread down.

Put the bread in a greased or lined bread pan, and let the bread double in size a second time. 

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

Let the bread cool in the pan for 5-10 minutes, remove the bread from the pan, and let the bread cool completely.
