I found this recipe for a friend who eats no white flour. I made it from the recipe I found to test it and then modified it to what I’m posting here. I think it’s delicious and I’ve received MANY compliments on it.

2 cups Brown Sugar
1/4 cup wheat germ
1/4 cup wheat bran
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt

2-3 cups shredded carrots
1 cup crushed pineapple (optional)
1 cup walnuts (optional)
1/2 cup raisins (optional)
