   4 1/2            tsp  active dry yeast -- (2 pkgs/1/4 oz each)
   3 1/4           cups  warm water -- (110 to 115F)
      1/4           cup  bread flour
      1/3           cup  canola oil
      1/3           cup  honey

   6 1/2              C  whole wheat flour -- (to 7 1/2C)
      1/2           cup  sunflower seeds
   3        tablespoons  butter -- melted

I've tried other bread recipes, but this one is a staple in our home. 
I won $50 in a bake-off with a loaf that I had stored in the freezer.

Prep: 40 min. + rising
Bake: 35 min.
Makes: 3 loaves (12 slices each)

In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the bread flour, 
oil, honey, salt and 4 cups whole wheat flour. Beat until smooth. 
Stir in sunflower kernels and enough remaining flour to form a firm dough.

Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, 6 to 8 
minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease the top. 
Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.

Punch dough down; divide into 3 portions. Shape into loaves; place in 
three greased 8x4" loaf pans. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 
30 minutes.

Bake at 350F until golden brown, 35 to 40 minutes. Brush with melted 
butter. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool. Freeze option: 
Securely wrap and freeze cooled loaves in foil, and place in 
resealable plastic freezer bags. To use, thaw at room temperature.

Review: This turned out fantastic! I like that it makes 3 loaves, as 
it really makes it worth the effort. I make a lot of bread, and find 
it hard to find really good wheat ones that everybody likes. The 
texture was perfect.

Review: I've made this recipe several times & it always turns out 
perfectly. I roll out 1/3, brush with butter then roll up & slice 
like cinnamon rolls. It makes the most fantastic dinner rolls.

Review: This bread was delicious and easy to make (2 pluses in my 
book). The taste is very good!!! Plus, I love that it makes three 
loaves. Will be making this one over and over again!

Review: This makes great sandwiches and toast. I have used it to also 
make wonderful cinnamon rolls and cinnamon bread. I just left out the 
sunflower seeds.

Review: Great bread recipe. This also makes excellent toast. Will 
definitely make this again and again.

Review: I made this bread (1/3 recipe) completely in my bread 
machine. I did add 1 1/4 Tsp of vital wheat gluten; also, I added 
extra water (1 1/2 Tbsp) This is the first 100% wheat bread that 
turned out moist and light. There are only two of us and I make bread 
at least twice a week. This will be great to alternate with our usual
