This my own concoction, It contains more bran than flour and prunes as well. This should get you "going" and it's so good for you.Nothing has to be exact in the measurements. For extra nutrition I added ground flax seed and ground Salba, also Kretchmer wheat germ. This is not a sweet muffin, if you want more sugar just increase the brown sugar. If you don't know what Salba is I found this explanation very informative. The zaar computer will not accept Salba as an ingredient so I'm adding here. 1/8 cup Salba (optional Salba® is packed with more energizing nutrition than any other vegetable source, even Flax. After more than a decade of testing, no single food known to man can match Salba’s® nutritional power. This ancient grain is rich in Omega 3 fatty acids, with an optimal Omega 3 to 6 ratio, beneficial fibre, Calcium, Magnesium, Iron, Vitamin C, Potassium, vegetable proteins plus vital age-fighting antioxidants. Clinical studies suggest Salba’s® unique nutritional make-up can: help boost energy levels, reduce blood pressure, improve your heart health, promote balanced blood sugar, aid in hunger management, promote healthy weight loss and support easy digestion.
