Add multigrain mix to flour ingredients and mix together until it forms a sticky ball and then add 1 cup (250 mL) more of whole wheat flour. Knead for approximately 10 minutes or until a smooth, soft dough forms. Let rest 5 minutes. Brush the top of the dough with oil and place in an oiled bowl. Let dough rise until doubled in size about 2 hours.
