Recommended Substitutions:
Ground Flax seed can replace oat bran
Use all wheat flour instead of all-purpose (I like)
1/2 cup of brown sugar replaces the white sugar (I like)
Replace half the milk with light sour cream
Increase the flour to 1 cup and the quick oats to 3/4 cup in place of the the wheat germ and oat bran.
Other fruit can replace the blueberries. My husband and kids prefer the apples with a little bit of cinnamon added.

***Needs to be stored in the freezer or refrigerator. When ready to eat can stick in microwave for 10-15 seconds.
***I usually make at least 2 batches since the ingredients are out.
