Vegan Wheat Bread

Vegan Whole Wheat Bread
1 1/4 cup warm water
2 TBS honey
2 tsp yeast
3 cups whole wheat flour (to keep the bread lighter, try substituting 1 cup white flour.)
1/4 cup bean flour (this helps keep the bread moist, and keeps it from falling apart)
1 TBS shortening (I like to use 2 TBS milled flax seed)
1 tsp salt

Pour the warm water into a mixing bowl, add the honey (barley mixing it in, you do not want the water to cool), and sprinkle the yeast on top.While the yeast is activting, gather your ingredients. When the yeast is foamy in appearance; add the flour, shortening, and salt. Mix until the dough is smooth. The dough may appear a little sticky, do not add any more flour. Allow the dough to rise for 30 minutes in a warm location (an oven that was heated to 200, and then turned off works great.) Punch down the dough, and knead into a bread loaf. Place in a warm location and let rise for about 30 minutes.Place in a pre-heated oven at 375 and bake for 30 - 35 minutes.
