Let me start by saying….Cristine & Fallon are my kinda girls.  🙂  They are both breakfast girls and both oatmeal girls!  Whenever I want to know what to make for breakfast I can always go to their sites and find something yummy.  While I am not a BIG breakfast person (I really, really am not big on eggs and prefer tofu!), I am big on cooked cereal and muffins, scones, rolls…. 🙂
In one of the Jan/Feb issue of Cooking Light magazine I came across this recipe for Banana, Wheat Germ, and Oats recipe.  I am always thinking of ways to get the most nutrition in our food and lately Grumpy has been doing the same 🙂  I love that there is wheat germ in the recipe – packing this full of Vitamin E. While I offered to make Grumpy cereal this morning, he opted out, so I had to adjust the recipe for one.
 
I know it looks like a lot of sugar but it’s just the one tablespoon!  
The heat from the oatmeal melted the sugar and made it look like a lot more than it was!
