Challah with a Healthy Twist


3 tablespoons yeast
3 cups warm water
1 tablespoon kosher salt
½ cup clover honey
1 cup soy flour
1 cup ground flax seed meal
¾ cup canola oil
5 large eggs
2 cups whole wheat flour
approximately 10 cups white bread flour


Mix first four ingredients in a large mixer (kitchen-aid style) and let sit until yeast dissolves and bubbles. Gradually add liquid ingredients on setting 2 until mixed. Add soy and whole wheat flours and flax seeds until gradually mixed. Change blade to dough hook and gradually beat in white flour until dough becomes a smooth ball. Let rise until doubled (about 1 hour). Divide and shape into braided loaves and let rise until dough springs back when touched. Bake in 400 degree oven for about 20 minutes until crispy on the outside. Enjoy! This is healthy challah your children can make a meal of.
