Whole Wheat Rusks
Whole Wheat Buttermilk Rusks.  These rusks are delicious.

Wet ingredients

500 g butter, melted
500 ml buttermilk
3 large eggs
2 cups soft brown sugar
Whisk eggs and buttermilk together, add sugar and melted butter; mix well.

Dry ingredients

300 g flour
400 g whole-wheat flour
300 g traditional oats
50 g oat bran
40 ml baking powder
2 tsp salt


Mix above ingredients.
ADD 250 g All-Bran flakes and crush while mixing.
ADD: 1 cup sunflower seeds
½ cup pumpkin seeds
½ cup sesame seeds
1 cup raisins / cranberries

Method 2

Add wet to dry ingredients and mix well.
Spoon mixture into 2 greased pyrex dishes and smooth with a spatula.
Bake 350°F for about 40 minutes
Let cool slightly and slice into pieces.
Let cool completely, cover dishes with cling wrap and freeze overnight (prevents rusks from breaking and crumbling).
Break rusks into pieces and separate them so that pieces are not touching.
Dry in oven 170°F until dry.
ENJOY. Crumbs are great to eat as granola on yogurt!
