Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup unprocessed wheat bran
  • 1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons chilled stick margarine, cut into small pieces
  • 2/3 cup chopped pitted dates
  • 2/3 cup vanilla low-fat yogurt
  • 2 egg whites, lightly beaten
  • Vegetable cooking spray

Preparation

  1. Combine first 8 ingredients in a bowl; cut in margarine with a pastry blender until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Add dates; toss well. Add yogurt and egg whites, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened (dough will be sticky).
  2. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; with floured hands, knead lightly 3 to 4 times. Pat dough into an 8-inch circle on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Cut dough into 10 wedges, cutting into but not through dough. Bake at 350° for 25 minutes or until loaf sounds hollow when tapped.
