Top Review by MelissaO

I made some changes to this (because of the ingredients I had on hand...) First, I only had "Frosted Mini Wheats", so I blended (in batches) 90 of them to create just over a cup. Then I only added 1/3 C. splenda granular (less than the 1 C. because my shredded wheat was frosted). I used 1/4 C. light butter, 1/4 C. unsweetened applesauce, and 2 egg whites. I followed the directions to the T with my substitutions. The batter was heavy, but the bread was yummy! The only change I should have made was to bake it for 5-10 minutes SHORTER than the hour I baked it. The edges were a little tough.
