I love the goodness of a piece of Date & Oat slice. It just oozes of health and nourishment. Breakfast is one meal that almost everyone in our family is in a hurry to have. There’s either no time to whip something nourishing up or no time to eat it! That’s exactly why I love Date & Oat slices. I just make a batch of them and distribute it to my mom, father-in-law and whatever that’s left (which is meant to last at least for about 4 meals!) Hubby finishes in a day :). Honestly, it’s plain goodness and we don’t really leave it for breakfast, it substitutes as a sweet for tea time, a nutritious snack and a wonderful dessert!
