4 cups mashed bananas
1 jar baby food prunes -- (4 1/2 oz)
3/4 cup granulated sweetener -- (sugar, sucanat)
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup nonfat sour cream -- or skim milk (less if using liquid whites)
4 tablespoons dried egg whites -- (liquid egg whites)
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 cups bran -- (not cereal)
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cups quick-cooking oats
1/2 cup vital wheat gluten
3 tablespoons baking powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons ground nutmeg
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground cardamom

Preparation / Directions:

(makes 3 loaves) My SAD husband said to tell my virtual friends that it was "very, very good". [Stephanie] 1. Preheat oven to 325F. 2. Line the bottoms and a bit up the sides of 3 loaf tins (8x41/2?) with waxed paper. Or use non-stick tins. (Either works) 3. In one bowl, combine the ingredients from bananas to vanilla. 4. In another bowl, combine the remaining (dry) ingredients. 5. Add the wet ingredients to the dry - do not overmix! The batter will be fairly thick and lumpy. (If it's too runny, it takes too long to cook and loses texture.) 6. Split the batter between the loaf tins. 7. Bake for approximately 40 minutes. Probably should start checking at 30 minutes. A toothpick should come out clean when stuck into the loaf. For muffins (makes 24 large): Add 1 cup raisins (optional) and bake for 26 minutes in a 325F ove
