This slice is healthy, filling, tasty, we love it!! It's great anytime of the day. Freezes well or lasts in the fridge for about 3-4 days. Lovely warmed up for dessert topped with low fat yoghurt or custard, yum!!!

How could I possibly make it higher in protein without increasing the calories too much? I am going on a hike and hoping to take them along for breakky.

xoxbekxox says:

I was thinking of altering it slightly by adding protein powder and making milk also, as well as baking soda to make it lighter- do you think this would work? I also am planning to sub chia seeds for LSA and make one of the eggs an egg white. I am mainly worried about it being too dense (bcuz of the protein powder) or too bitter because of the baking soda.

Healthy Food Guide says:

Hi Bek,

Sorry for the late reply. We would recommend you leave the LSA as it is, and instead add extra nuts, such as almonds or macadamias. Don’t worry about the protein powder or the eggs.

It's quite low in kilojoules as it is, so adding the nuts won't make it too high in energy but will increase the protein and give you some healthy fats, to keep you full throughout the morning.

The main thing you need to focus on when you are hiking, is regularly eating carbohydrates for energy, NOT the protein. Protein is more important to have at the end of the hike to help with recovery.

Sorry for delayed response. I would give the protein power ago defintly it actually sounds really nice, I wouldn't worry about being to dense it can be fun to experiment

I really don' like bananas. Can you substitute the bananas with something else in this slice?

Healthy Food Guide says:

Hi there.

If you don't like bananas, you could try using pears instead. But you'll need to have a play with the amounts to get the consistency right. You could also add a little low-fat natural yoghurt with the pear.
