  • 1 12 cups milk
  • 2 12 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 cup chopped nuts

Step 1

Preheat oven to 375°. Put oil, sugar, molasses, and eggs in a large bowl and stir to mix well. Add salt, wheat germ, soy flour, powdered milk, sesame seeds, brewer's yeast, whole wheat flour, sunflower seeds, milk, and baking powder. Stir well, then add raisins, nuts, and oats and stir again to distribute evenly.
