  • Very Good

    I can't ever leave a recipe alone! I added 1/4 cup unprocessed oat bran in place of 1/4 cup of the whole wheat flour to give it more fiber. I omitted the walnuts because I am allergic. I switched the quantities for the honey and applesauce. Added 1 tsp cinnamon and pinch of nutmeg. It was very good - 1/18/09
