Banana Oatmeal (With Wheat Germ)

(4 servings)

  • 3 and 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup quick or old fashioned oats
  • 2/3 cup wheat germ - toasted
  • 2 medium bananas - sliced into coins
  • 4 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
* You can buy toasted wheat germ or you could toast it yourself. To toast, just place the wheat germ in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Stir often until it starts to smell nutty.

Bring the water and salt to a boil. Slowly, add the oats and the wheat germ. Reduce the heat to medium-low, so the water is at a high simmer. Cook for 6 to 8 minutes or until you reach your desired consistency. Sit in the butter until mixed and melted.

Divide the cereal among serving bowls. Top with banana slices and sprinkle with brown sugar.

Delicious. Toasty. Fruity. For creamier oatmeal, use half water and half milk. You could also add raisins if you like - just stir in a handful when you mix in the butter.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank Mr Breakfast for this recipe.
