Honey Wheat Bread

This is such a simple recipe, but it turned out just the way I wanted it to - almost exactly like Great Harvest's Honey Wheat bread, without the bother of grinding my own flour. I don't think their version has oats in it, but I like them and they tend to keep the bread nice and soft. This recipe produces two loaves, since if you're making bread by hand, you might as well make two.

Honey Wheat Oat Bread
2 c. white flour
2 c. wheat flour
2 c. oats
1/2 c. honey
1/4 c. oil (I mixed olive and salad)
2 Tbsp. molasses
2.5 tsp salt
3 tsp yeast
2.25 or so cups of water

Optional:
Flax seeds
Sunflower seeds

Standard bread procedure: Mix, knead, let rise, punch down, let rise again, shape into loaves (I made two loaves), place in greased loaf pans, let rise a bit in pan, bake at 350 until done.
