    I’m intrigued with this recipe… good fibre content, although it does sound a bit high for only 1/2 cup oatbran. I wonder if there’s an equally delicious way to modify it to reduce the calories… A meringue topping instead of whipped cream? Not sure what the difference would be with a 7 Minute Frosting… Would be nice to hear from Canadian Living on this one…
