Ingredients

  • 2 packages (¼ oz.) active dry yeast
  • ½ cup warm water
  • 1¼ cups skim milk
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 egg whites

Directions

  • In large bowl, combine yeast and warm water; let stand for 10 minutes. In small saucepan, combine milk, brown sugar, and honey; heat over low heat until warm. Add to yeast along with egg and egg whites; beat until combined.
  • Add oat bran, oats, and 1 cup whole-wheat flour and beat for 1 minute. Let stand, covered, for 30 minutes. Then stir in salt, cinnamon, raisins, remaining whole-wheat flour and enough all-purpose flour to form a stiff batter; beat for 2 minutes.
