Whole-Grain Basil Bread

1 packet of yeast (1 1/4 ounces)
1 cup warm water
1 cup basil, packed
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon garlic powder
3 cups whole-wheat flour
1 cup whole oats
 

1. In a small bowl, dissolve a packet of yeast in warm water, and let stand.

2. In a food processor, pulse basil with olive oil, honey, and garlic powder.

3. Combine yeast and basil mixture with whole-wheat flour and whole oats. Knead into dough, and let rise, about an hour. Bake 30 to 35 minutes at 375 degrees.

Quick Tip: For a savory pizza crust, eliminate the oats and reduce both honey and oil to 1 teaspoon.
