  1. Combine the all-purpose and whole wheat flours, the bran, baking powder, soda, salt, cinnamon and brown sugar.
  2. Cut in the butter. (Or combine in a food processor, just until crumbly.)
  3. Add the egg, buttermilk and dates; do not over-mix. (If the dough seems too sticky to work with add a couple more tablespoons flour.)
