Easiest Whole Wheat Bread Recipe

Wheat Bread is GOOOOOD. We have actually made this bread at my apartment twice in the past week and it gets gobbled up in no time. It's DELICIOUS, simple, and really healthy. I got this recipe from one of my darling friends Lola. It's a keeper. 

Whole Wheat Bread
1 1/2 c. warm water
1 packet of yeast
3 Tbls. honey
1 tsp of salt
1 Tbls oil (optional- not needed if you eat the  bread in one day)
4-5 c. Flour (or as much as needed)

Mix warm water and honey together. Dissolve the yeast until frothy, this usually takes about 15 minutes. Add oil and dry ingredients. Knead for a few minutes. Roll into a ball, place in a bowl and let rise for an hour. Remove the dough and throw it on the counter, literally chuck it, as hard as you can. Apparently it gets all of the air bubbles out of it. Throwing it twice might not be a bad idea. Roll the dough into a loaf, or braid it. Place on a cookie sheet, not in a loaf pan and bake at 350 for 30ish minutes.

Seriously, could that get any easier? I think not...
