Banana Wheat Germ Oatmeal

Banana Wheat Germ Oatmeal

(3 servings)    Printable Version
  • 3 and 3/4 cups water
  • 1 and 1/4 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 2/3 cup toasted wheat germ
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • 2 medium-sized bananas - sliced into coins
I liked this oatmeal, but I'll admit that I liked it much better after I doubled the amount of butter and added 2 Tablespoons of maple syrup for some added flavor and sweetness. As you might expect, the toasted wheat germ added a warm, toasty flavor. Toasting the wheat germ was easy: Just 4 minutes in a frying pan over medium-high heat - stirring until browned and fragrant. This oatmeal was good with bananas, but I think it would be even better with 1/3 cup raisins in their place. Bottom Line: I'd make it again with the changes I mentioned.

How To Make Banana Wheat Germ Oatmeal

In a medium saucepan over high heat, combine the water, oats, wheat germ and salt. Bring this mixture to a boil - stirring occasionally.

As soon as it reaches a boil, reduce the heat to low. Simmer for 5 or 6 minutes until thickened - stirring occasionally.

Transfer oatmeal to serving bowls. Sprinkle each serving with brown sugar. Swirl 1 teaspoon of butter into each bowl. Top with banana slices. Enjoy!

Making Banana Wheat Germ Oatmeal

If you need to toast your own wheat germ, just heat it in a skillet over medium-high heat - stirring often - until it smells toasty.
