I have made this recipe many, many times; and it's pretty great as written. With that being said (and with how many times I've made it), I've modified it to fit my family's taste. The last batch I made, I used 2 1/2 cups old fashioned oats, 1/2 cup flour, 1/3 cup brown sugar, 1/4 tsp salt, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp ground ginger, 1 cup of raisins, 1/3 cup honey, 1 egg beaten, 2 tsps vanilla, and then I mashed 1 medium banana into a half-cup measure and then topped off the remaining space in the half-cup measure with vegetable oil (not an exact measurement, but it reduces the amount of fat in the recipe). I followed the same instructions, mixing the dry ingredients, and then adding in the wet ingredients. Mine usually require the full 30 minutes. I have also made it using molasses in place of the honey; have tried it with both all purpose and wheat flours; and it always turns out good..So my rating is based on the original recipe AND the fact that it so easily adapted to your tastes, dietary needs, and/or simply what ingredients you have on hand....Oh, and I almost never have wheat germ in my pantry, so I haven't made it with that, but it still turns out great.
