  • 1 1/2 cup whole white wheat flour
  • 1/2cup oat bran
  • 1 Tbsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 4 Tbsp. light butter (50/50 Smart Balance for baking)
  • 3/4 cup skim milk

  1. Preheat oven to 450 F. In a medium bowl, combine flour, oat bran, baking powder and salt.
  2. Cut the butter into small pieces and add to flour mixture. Mix with hands until mixture is crumbly.
  3. In a large bowl, mix milk and sweet potato.
