Whole Wheat Garlic Breadsticks

This is our favorite from Papa John's pizza. Tried to recreate them, with whole wheat flour. We cut back on a bit of cheese, else they were as good as if not better than the ones we order (and not to mention healthier, with whole wheat flour!)

2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon chopped garlic (can use roasted garlic or garlic powder)
1/3 cup oil or butter
1 tsp yeast
1 tbsp honey

2/3 cup water

Sift the flour, salt, garlic powder (or mix in the garlic) together and keep separate. Combine honey/ sugar, yeast and lukewarm water and let the yeast bubble up.Stir in flour mix into the yeasty mix and knead into a dough. Keep it in a well greased bowl, covered with a damp cloth and let it rise for an hour or so in a damp place.
Knead again and roll out into breadsticks. I separated them into 7-8 portions and shaped them such. Let rise for another half an hour.
Bake in oven at 180 deg for 20 minutes or so, they will be brown and crispy when they are done. Brush with butter. (Or spread grated cheese and let bake for 5 mins or so till the cheese browns.)
