"Not a huge hit with my kids, but I liked it! I used milk instead of water and omitted the wheat germ (didn't have any one hand). I also doubled the recipe and used one 15 oz can of oranges, which seemed like plenty. Also used about 2 T. more brown sugar (for the double batch)."

"This is sooo heavenly!!! I use pecans instead of walnuts and I serve it with vanilla yogurt. I didn't have wheat germ so I put in wheat bran and it was fine. I considered omitting it. I think that would work just fine as well. It is much better than it sounds!!!"
