First, try again with either a whole wheat bread flour or buy some
gluten and replace a small portion of the WW flour with the gluten.
That will really help the bread stick together.  

Second, I found that I had to stick pretty closely to the recommended
amount of salt to get the texture right (I tend to cut salt

Third, experiment a bit with the amount of water.  I found that an
extra 16th of a cup or so of water made a big difference in texture.

Good luck,
