Yogurt & Ice Cream Topping.
True story: When I was a little kid - long before developing gluten problems - I used to love getting into my mom's jar of wheat germ in the fridge. I'd sprinkle it on cereal, put it on yogurt, even top ice cream with it. I loved the texture, and the almost nutty flavour it added to things.
As an adult, I may not be able to have it anymore, but my husband can... and he's someone obsessed with getting enough fiber. We're old like that! 🙂
So, I created this yogurt topping for him. Not only does it have wheat germ, but also flax meal - one of his favourite things (OLD. I feel OLD typing that!). He's also been getting into using chia seeds recently, so those are in there also. He keeps a canister of this at his desk at work, and some at home - right on hand, to spoon onto yogurt whenever he wants.
This is super easy to make, it whips up in just a few minutes. For a gluten free version, substitute gluten free oat bran for the wheat germ.
