  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour

  • ¾ cup whole wheat flour

  • ¾ cup white sugar

  • ¼ cup oat bran

  • ¼ cup quick cooking oats

  • ¼ cup wheat germ

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 cup blueberries

  • ½ cup chopped walnuts

  • 1 cup buttermilk

  • 1 medium banana, mashed

  • 1 large egg
