Ingredients

  • 2 cups All-Bran
  • 1 cup crushed Shredded Wheat

"Would make these again and again. Very moist and they freeze very well. I made one dozen muffins and one 4x12 loaf with this recipe. I doubled the amount of dates instead of using raisins. Would be great for brunches or family gatherings."
