1-1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 to 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup walnut pieces
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 envelope Fleischmann's® RapidRise Yeast
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup water
1/3 cup plain yogurt
1/4 cup butter OR margarine

Combine whole wheat flour, 1 cup all-purpose flour, walnut pieces, brown sugar, undissolved yeast and salt in a large bowl. Heat water, yogurt, and butter until very warm (120° to 130°F). Gradually add to flour mixture. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer scraping bowl occasionally. Stir in enough remaining flour to make a soft dough. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 8 to 10 minutes. Cover; let rest 10 minutes.
Divide dough in 3 equal pieces; roll each to 20-inch rope. Braid together; seal ends. Place on greased baking sheet. Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 1 hour.

Bake at 400°F for 20 to 25 minutes or until done. Remove from sheet; cool on wire rack.
