Delicious with a nice curry. You can add any additional nuts/seeds you desire. Do not know where I got the recipe so I apologise!
- 1 cup wheat bran
- 1 1⁄3 cups whole wheat flour or 1 1⁄3 cups barley flour
- 1 cup other whole-grain flour (rye, oat, buckwheat, etc.)
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 1⁄2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon molasses (or preferred sweetener)
- 1 tablespoon oil
- 1 tablespoon vinegar or 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 1⁄3 cups water
- Preheat oven to 375°F Grease up a flat pan (pizza or cookie sheet).
- In a bowl combine the dry ingredients.
- Make three wells in this mixture and put the oil in one, the molasses or other sweetener in another and the vinegar in the last.
- Pour the water over this and mix the whole thing up quickly.
- If required, add a bit more water in order to ensure all ingredients are moistened. Fold in any extras and plop the very thick batter (or is it a very sticky dough?) onto the greased pan and flatten out with the back of a wooden spoon.
- Bake at 375 for about a half an hour. It should be firm in the centre, golden on top and brown on the edges.
- Here are some of the variations we like to use:
- "Sunnyboy" - rye flour, wheat bran, whole wheat and 3 Tbs. flax (really good with strawberry jam)
- "Sunnygirl" - 2/3 c oatmeal, 1/3 cup soy flour, 2/3 cup oat bran, 1 2/3 cup whole barley flour, 3 tbsp flax, 2 Tbs. sunflower seed, sweetened with 2 Tbs. pureed applesauce (omit molasses), and sprinkle top with a bit of oatmeal and sunflower seeds prior to baking.
