This is a recipe that I have been making for years. I don't think I have ever made it the same more than once, except the last few times where I seem to have managed to combine the right things at the right time!
I like to have this slice on hand particularly when I'm doing a bit of running first thing in the morning. I do wake up some mornings a little hungry and couldn't imagine doing my run with my tummy grumbling! So I have a small slice before I run .. just enough to tide me over until I can have my usual breaky after my run.
If you are worried about the calorie number, then this may not be the slice for you! Whilst it is packed with healthy ingredients they do make it a high calorie snack ... albeit a good healthy snack!
