I thought I'd share this delicious Oatmeal recipe I found on Quaker's website! I believe in another post Heather said toasted wheat germ was okay to add as long as you have a soluble fiber base, so I always use it and it's never bothered me. You can leave it out if you want to, though!
Creamy Maple Cranberry Oatmeal
3 1/2 cups soy milk 1/4 teaspoon salt (optional) 2 cups oats (quick or old fashioned, uncooked) 1/2 cup dried cranberries (such as Craisins) 1/3 cup maple syrup 1/4 cup toasted wheat germ
1. In medium saucepan, bring soy milk and salt to a gentle boil (Watch carefully). 2. Stir in oats, cranberries, and maple syrup. 3. Return to a boil; reduce heat to medium. 4. Cook 1 minute for quick oats, 5 minutes for old-fashioned oats or until most of soy milk is absorbed, stirring occasionally. 5. Let stand until desired consistency. 6. Stir in wheat germ. 7. Spoon oatmeal into four cereal bowls. 8. Drizzle with additional syrup, if desired. 9. Serve with soy milk or soy yogurt, if desired. 10.
