My mom gave me some oat bran and I have been experimenting with it. Thought I would add it to this recipe and really give these brownies a healthy kick! This morning I made french toast which I covered in oat bran after the egg mixture, the kids loved it. It came out crunchy on the outside and soft and yummy on the inside. I put cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and vanilla extract in the egg/milk combo. It was like having dessert for breakfast. With food that tastes this good, it's hard not to eat well!
