From Cooking a la Heart by Linda Hachfeld and Betsy Eykyn.

* To make sour milk, place 2 Tbsp lemon juice or vinegar in a 2 cup measure. Add skim milk to measure 1 3/4 cups.

Step 1

In a large bowl combine flour, oats, sugar, orange peel, baking powder and baking soda until well blended. Add milk and egg white. Stir just until ingredients are moistened. Stir in the sunflower seeds. Sprinkle a non-stick sprayed 1 1/2 quart casserole lightly with wheat germ. Pour batter into casserole. Bake. If necessary, cover loaf with foil during the last 15 minutes of baking to prevent over-browning. Cool in casserole for 15 minutes; turn out onto wire rack. Brush top of loaf with honey and sprinkle with additional sunflower seeds if desired. Serve warm or cool.
