What is wheat germ? Wheat germ is part of a wheat kernel and is responsible for helping the plant reproduce and spawn new wheat. It is usually removed from processed wheat products but it is a very nutritional part of whole grain wheat. Wheat germ has excellent nutritional value as a food supplement. It’s a great source of vegetable proteins, along with fiber and healthy fats. It’s also a good source of magnesium, zinc, thiamin, folate, potassium, and phosphorus.




3 yellow peaches, peeled, pitted, and diced

1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice

1/2 cup brown sugar, loosely packed

1 Tablespoon raw sugar

1/2 cup salted butter

1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour

1/2 cup wheat germ

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Place diced peaches in a medium bowl and mix them with lemon juice. Sprinkle cinnamon onto the peaches. Set aside.

Cream butter and sugar together in a small bowl. Add to peaches, stirring until mixed.

In a separate bowl stir together the dry ingredients. Add to the peach mixture. Combine until a stiff dough forms. 

Fill greased muffin tin to three-fourths full. Bake for 20 minutes. To test for doneness, insert a toothpick into the center of a muffin; if the toothpick is clean, the muffin is done. 

Cool muffins in the muffin tin.
