Ingredients

1 tablespoon dry yeast
1 tablespoon honey
1 1/2 cups warm water (100° to 110°)
1 teaspoon salt
1 large egg, lightly beaten
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups whole wheat flour
Cooking spray
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano

Preparation

Preheat oven to 425°.

Dissolve yeast and honey in water in a large bowl; let stand 5 minutes. Stir in salt and egg, stirring with a whisk. Lightly spoon flours into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Stir flour into water mixture, stirring until a stiff dough forms. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic (about 10 minutes). Shape dough into a log; divide log into 24 equal portions. Working with one portion at a time (cover remaining dough to prevent drying), gently roll each portion into a 6-inch rope. Place ropes on baking sheets coated with cooking spray.

Combine salt, garlic powder, basil, and oregano in a small bowl. Spray ropes lightly with cooking spray; sprinkle with garlic mixture. Bake at 425° for 15 minutes or until golden.
