Honey "Wheat" Sunflower Seed Bread

This bread is delicious and is so simple especially if you have a bread-maker; the recipe makes 2 loaves and freezes just fine.  I found the recipe on Allrecipes at: Honey Wheat Sunflower Bread Recipe

These are the Ingredients I used:
2 cups warm water (120-130 degrees)
4 3/4 cup flour, divided 
2 (.25 oz) packages yeast (or 4 1/2 tsp)
1 tbsp sugar
1 cup oatmeal
1/3 cup dry milk powder (I used plain powdered coffee creamer)
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup honey
2 tsp salt
1/2 - 1 cup sunflower seeds

1. Combine everything in your bread-maker and set to a dough setting 
OR if you don't have a bread-maker...
Mix together water and 2 cups of flour, yeast and sugar, beat on low for 3 minutes.  Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes.  Stir in the remaining 2 3/4 cup flour, oats, milk powder, butter, honey and salt, mix well. Stir in sunflower seeds.  Turn onto a floured surface and knead for about 6-8 minutes.  Shape into a ball, place in a oiled bowl, turn once, cover and allow to rise till doubled, about 30-45 minutes.  Punch down and divide in half, cover and let rise 10 minutes.  
2. Shape into 2 loaves and place in 2 greased loaf pans.  Cover and let rise for about 30 minutes.
3. Bake at 375 degrees for about 35 minutes; if the loaves seem to be getting too dark cover with foil for the last 15 minutes of baking.
4. Remove loaves from pans and cool on wire racks.
