i'm with doodlemor on this,  dry premixed is fine (although you have gluten separate from flour??  is it a special flour without built in gluten??)  but the honey will start "growing" if mixed with other liquids, so would measure that when needed.

The flour has gluten in it already (especially the bread flour), but whole wheat flour is notoriously difficult to work with because it has a lower level of gluten content than bread flour (which is not whole wheat).  So since I use more whole wheat flour than bread flour, I add in some gluten (bought separately--Amazon sells it in cartons of 14 boxes) to help balance things out.  Otherwise the bread has no stability and "falls," as well as just not rising as well and being sort of dry and heavy.
