Wheat Germ Oats

If you haven’t noticed, I love breakfast.

I love pancakes, and waffles, and eggs, and cereal and oatmeal!

Now, wheat germ…I’ve never eaten it on anything but muffins and yogurt.


Wheat germ, you’ve proved me wrong again! It’s great in oatmeal!

It makes a creamy oatmeal, without having to add the caloric milk!

Just add water! 😉 Sounded like an infomercial, there.

So, go eat your breakfast.


Oh, and make these this weekend.
