Enjoy! These make a great treat when you come inside from a morning spent playing in the snow, and make great snacks for stroller riders as well!

¾ c orange juice
1 TBS vegetable oil
2 c Raisin Bran
¾ c pitted dates, chopped (or you can use more raisins)

¼ c brown sugar
2 ½ tsp baking powder
Makes 1 dozen.
Heat oven to 400 F
In medium bowl, beat egg substitute/ egg whites, orange juice and oil (and optional orange zest) together.
