Author Notes: My morning meal is an oatmeal. Its been like this for years and will probably be forever. My husband likes to have eggs for his breakfast and never minds some pastry or at least just a toast. Sometimes I wake up earlier to make crepes (never pancakes though) or something else. Having people over will make me widen our breakfast horizons. What could be more classic and American than a morning muffin (pancake, I assume, but anyways)? I woke up earlier last Saturday with intention to use our muffin pan as a proof that it shouldn't go hang out in the basement yet. I don't load my food with butter and sugar and try to make our meals what some call "healthy", I call it "normal". I recently found Rob Mill's wheat germ package and now use it in pretty much everything. So, here it is - morning healthy treat. - Daria Faulkner

- 1/4 cup raw sugar
- 1/4 cup honey

- 2 tablespoons flax seeds
- Preheat oven to 400F.
- In a large bowl sift flour and add: wheat germ, sugar, salt and baking powder.
- In a small bowl beat egg with a fork. Add honey, vanilla extract, oil and milk. Mix till well combined.
