½  cup oat bran
¼  cup sugar

In a medium mixing bowl, combine flours, oat bran, sugar, and baking soda.    
In a small bowl, combine egg whites, banana, milk, and oil. Add the liquid mixture to the 
dry ingredients, stirring just enough to blend.
Spoon the batter into the cups of the muffin tin, filling each about two-thirds full to leave     
room for expansion as the muffins bake. Bake for 18 minutes. Serve warm.
