Nutritional values

This recipe can be prepared particularly quickly and does not require eggs or butter. Instead, it contains canola oil, and thus unsaturated fatty acids, more precisely omega-3 fatty acids, which among other things ensure good concentration.

The dates not only bring a sweet taste to this recipe but also is a good source of satiating fiber. If you do not like dates, you can replace them with 8 oz of freshly grated apples.
