Step 1Pour oatmeal into a bowl, stir in wheat germ. Pour in milk and stir to combine. Microwave for about 1 minute 30 seconds or until desired thickness. Stir in berries and banana and let stand for 30 seconds before enjoying for flavours to combine.
Let oatmeal stand a bit longer for a thicker consistency.
This is great to pack in a thermos and have it ready to enjoy when you get to school or the office.
