Mom's fluffy whole wheat bread

 My mom adapted this wheat bread from a pizza dough recipe. It is amazing! She added the oil, flax and honey. I am in love. . .
Makes one loaf
1 pk active yeast (1 Tb)
1 cup warm water
1 3/4 Cup whole wheat flour impacted ground
¼ cup ground flax seed or whole wheat flour
1 teas salt
2 tablespoons of canola oil
2 tablespoons of honey
Dissolve yeast in water and honey. Let sit 10 minutes.
In a large bowl combine flour, flax seed and salt. Add yeast mixture. Knead until combined well. Cover and let rise for 25-30 minutes. Knead and place in greased loaf pan. Let rise until doubled-about one hour.
Cook on 350 for 35-40 minutes until golden brown.
Tip: to help in rising. Put water in glass cup and place in microwave. Cook for 1-2 minutes until water is boiling. Place bread dough in microwave with warm water and shut the door (do not turn microwave on). The heat and moisture from the warm water will help the bread rise.
