    2 loaves (32 slices)

Ingredients

  • 3 to 4 cups all-purpose flour, divided
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 cup Daisy 1% cottage cheese
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1-1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup toasted wheat germ
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats

Directions

  • In a large bowl, combine 2 cups of all-purpose flour, salt and yeast. In a saucepan, heat water, honey and oil to 120°-130°; stir in cottage cheese. Add to flour mixture with egg whites; blend at low speed until moistened. Beat for 3 minutes on medium. Add whole wheat flour, wheat germ, oats and enough of the remaining all-purpose flour to form a soft dough.
  • Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • Punch dough down. Shape into two loaves. Place in two 8x4-in. loaf pans coated with cooking spray. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour. Bake at 375° for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown; cover with foil during the last 15 minutes to prevent overbrowning. Remove from pans; cool on wire racks.
