      Excellent recipe. I used applesauce instead of oil and it worked like a charm. I also ended up dividing it into 3 loaves since the dough was overflowing from the 2 loaf pans during the last rise. The dough was quite sticky - any recommendations on how to fix this? It seems to happen with all the wheat breads I make. UPDATE: I have made this recipe many times now. I cut the honey down to a little less than 1/4 cup for a less sweet bread. Today I didn't have enough sprouted wheat berries so I subbed 1/2 cup cooked 9 grain cereal mix and about 1/2 cup wheat bran. I also used only white flour (was out of wheat). It turned out excellent. Thanks again for the recipe!
