Ingredients
  Old fashioned rolled oats/Quick-cooking rolled oats 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Sifted all purpose flour 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Unsifted whole wheat flour 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Baking powder 1 Teaspoon
  Salt 1⁄8 Teaspoon
  Ground cinnamon 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Finely chopped pitted dates 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Finely chopped almonds 2 Ounce, finely chopped (1/2 Cup)
  Skim milk 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Egg whites 3 Large
  Firmly packed dark brown sugar 2 Tablespoon
  Vanilla extract 1 Teaspoon
Directions

1 Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease a 9"x 9"x 2" baking pan. In a large bowl, combine the oats, all-purpose flour, whole-wheat flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon and milk.
2 In a perfectly clean large bowl, beat the egg whites with an electric mixer set on high speed until they form soft peaks. Beat in the sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, until the whites form stiff peaks, then beat in the vanilla. Using a rubber spatula, gently fold the egg whites into the oat mixture, then spread the batter evenly in the pan.
3 Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until the top is brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool for 10 minutes in the pan, then transfer to a wire rack and let cool to room temperature.
