Kretschmer Wheat Germ

I’ve been keeping a secret from you…

I’m sorry.

Very, very sorry….I’ve meant to share it with you for sometime, but life gets busy……

The secret is….are you on the edge of your seat?  Well, as if the title of the post didn’t give it away already it’s WHEAT GERM!

Kretschmer wheat germ.  I use it in everything.  It’s aways in my refrigerator.  Yes once you open it needs to be refrigerated to keep it fresh.


Are you wondering why  I use wheat germ in everything and what is the everything I use it in?

Why because wheat germ is full of vitamins and minerals, Vitamin E, Folic Acid, Magnesium, thiamine, Phosphorus, Zinc, and last but not least wheat germ is also a fiber-rich source of high-quality non-animal protein and contains heart-healthy polyunsaturated fat. Extra bonus: There’s no sodium!

For more about what Wheat Germ is and the nutritional value of it check out the Kreschmer website. 

Where can you find Kretschmer wheat germ?  At my grocery store it’s in the aisle with the cereal, near the oatmeal and stuff. I started using wheat germ when my kiddos where toddlers as a way to get more vitamins and mineral in them when it seems as though they were eating nothing at all.  I sprinkled it and put it in everything, and I still do!

Here are some of the recipes that I add Wheat Germ to on a regular basis:

DSCN5710Homemade Granola


Buttermilk Pancakes


Morning Glory Muffins or any muffins for that matter, I often add 2-3 tablespoons of Kretschmer Wheat Germ to the batter of all my muffin recipes!

IMG_2328Honey White Bread wheat germ can also be added to any bread recipe of pizza dough, just toss in a few tablespoons and you have just added nutrition and a beautiful nutty flavor.

IMG_0705Monster Cookies I nearly always add wheat germ to my monster cookies, my kids love these cookies and they have no idea how good they are for them, despite the m&m’s 😉

I have to confess the reason that I haven’t added wheat germ to my recipe ingredient list is because it’s really so random how I throw it in, if I have it I toss some in, if I don’t well then duh obviously I don’t, but I rarely measure I just scoop some in, or sprinkle some on.  I add it to my oatmeal, in smoothies and malted’s, meatloaf, meatballs, any baked good, I love adding it to crumble topping for fruit crisp or cobbler.

So there you have it my secret is out….and now it’s your’s to run with!

She rocks it 🙂 I am gonna try your buttermilk pancakes. They look yummy! Don’t hold it against me, but I don’t have a twitter. Still possess a dumb phone with text and call only. Some old dogs just can’t change. But follow you on facebook and now follow Kretschmer.

  7. Love all these ideas….used to have it as a staple….need to try it again.Thanks

    Thanks for the reminder of how good it is in everything!

  9. Hi folks – just use whole wheat flour, it contains the germ and the bran. Maybe the problem is that so few people eat good bread in America, but make/buy white bread – and buy wheat germs/bran tablets instead. However, it’s better to buy the wheat germ/bran tablets, although it’s much more expensive -than never getting it.
