This is a simple bread recipe that is easy to make and very good. Give it a try! The link to the original recipe posting is below. Thanks!

No Knead Honey Wheat Bread

2 1/3 cups whole wheat flour
2 cups bread flour or all purpose
1 3/4 cups water, warmed (100-110 F)
5 tsp active dry yeast (2 packets/ .5 ounces)
2 tbsp honey (I added more honey to increase the honey flavor)
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 tsp salt

In a large, microwave safe bowl, whisk together whole wheat flour and bread flour. Microwave for 30-40 seconds, until flour is very warm to the touch. In a large bowl, or the bowl of a stand mixer, combine 1 cup of the water with the yeast and honey. Stir and let stand for 5-10 minutes, until yeast is foamy. Add in the remaining water, vegetable oil, salt and about half of the warm flour mixture and stir well with a wooden spoon to combine.

If using a stand mixer, attach a dough hook and continue adding flour with the mixer on medium. Add flour gradually until dough comes together into a smooth ball and pulls away from the sides. A small amount of flour might be left over. Turn speed up to medium and mix for 1 minute.

If mixing by hand, gradually add in the remaining flour, mixing vigorously with a wooden spoon with each addition. Mix until dough comes together with the wooden spoon for 1 additional minute after dough comes together smoothly.

Lightly grease a 9"x5" loaf pan, turn dough into the loaf pan and cover with a piece of plastic wrap. Allow to rise for 30-35 minutes, until dough rises 1" above the sides of the pan.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Once bread has risen, remove plastic wrap and place loaf pain in the oven. Bake for 30-35 minutes, until bread is dark golden brown, cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
