1TablespoonActive Dry Yeast
⅓cupOilplus a little extra for hands
7 ½cupsWhole Wheat Flourmay use half whole wheat/half white flour

Heat oven to warm about 200 degrees.
Place warm water in large mixing bowl. Add yeast and stir. Stir in honey and let proof (start to form a creamy foam) for 5 minutes.
Add oil, flour, and salt. Begin by adding 7 cups of flour. Start to mix using the dough hook. Add remaining ½ cup of flour until dough pulls away from sides of mixing bowl. Using Bosch or Kitchenaid, knead for 10 minutes at medium-high speed. If you don't own a stand mixer, you can knead by hand.
Place a little oil on hands and shape into two bread loaves. Spray loaf pans with non-stick cooking spray. Put pans in a warm oven to let rise until double -- about 20 minutes.
Once bread has raised, turn oven to 350 degrees. Leave bread in oven and set timer for 25 minutes.
Check bread to see if it is golden brown. Once bread is done, remove from oven and spread butter all over warm loaves. Let cool for several minutes before removing from pan.
