Add to flour mixture; add eggs and beat well.
Stir in cereal and whole wheat flour; add as much remaining unbleached flour as you can mix in with a spoon.

Shape each portion into a loaf; place in 2 greased 9x5x3-inch loaf pans.
Cover; let rise in warm place till nearly double [about 45 minutes).
Brush tops with a little water and sprinkle with sesame seed.
Bake in a 375° oven for 30 to 35 minutes, covering with foil the last 10 minutes.
