1/2 cup / 125 ml natural bran
1/4 cup / 50 ml wheat germ
1/4 cup / 50 ml all-purpose flour
1/4 cup / 50 ml dried cranberries or raisins

3 / 150 g Naturegg Omega 3 shell eggs

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).

  2. Combine oats, bran, wheat germ, flour, dried cranberries or raisins, almonds, walnuts (if using), baking soda, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg in a large bowl.

  3. Whisk together applesauce, milk, eggs and brown sugar in another bowl.

  4. Pour over dry ingredients and mix just to combine.

Tips

  1. For a nut-free option so you can send them to school with your children, replace almonds and walnuts with 4 tbsp (60 mL) of your favourite dried fruits.
