This didn't taste low fat at all!! Loved the added bonus of the apple juice!! Didn't taste very much in the cereals - but probably with dried apples - would have tasted more!! Couldn't find dried apples so used some dried cranberries. Didn't toast the wheat germ before hand. Had trouble mixing the honey with the apple juice - so "zapped" it in the microwave for 30 seconds - that did the trick!! Thanks Susie! :)
