Use wheat germ in your baking for healthy and delicious food the whole family will love!
Wheat germ can be added to baked goods – some breads enriched with added wheatgerm have a characteristic soft, springy center. It can be used in biscuits and cakes or sprinkled over cereals and yogurts or other deserts as a topping. It can also be added to salads and soups.
When used in homemade meatloaf and burgers, it acts as a binder and extends the recipes without being intrusive in texture or flavor. It can also be mixed with herbs and spices for use as a coating, where breadcrumbs might otherwise be used, on fish or fishcakes, chicken or rissoles.
I have gathered together a selection of wheat germ recipes I’ve found on the internet that I think you will enjoy.
