    Hello,

    I have just picked up a bag of Mornflake Oatbran in Morrisons It's loose and looks a bit like crushed oats. I read somewhere that this is the same as scan bran. Can someone confirm that please.

    Also, in scan bran recipes they often say X ( where x is a number)scan bran. As this oatbran is loose, how many grams is equivalent to one scan bran bar.

    Thanks,
    Melissa

    oatbran crispbread is similar to scanbran and is sold in health food stores and SW groups. They are both very hard high riber crispbreads and can be used interchangeably in recipes but scan bran is much higher in fiber.

    The cereal you have is completley different but as coljack said is a healthy b

    The ingredients say simply "pure mornflake oatbran 100%" :)

    I made a chocolate "scan bran" cake with it and it tasted jolly good! I used 10g to equal 1 scan branbar in the recipes I found online.

    Thanks,
