This was a lot better then I expected, actually. I thought it would be healthy but only so-so tasting, but it was quite good! I left out the egg (don't do raw eggs) and used sorghum instead of blackstrap because I am out. I also left out the flax oil because I'm out. (That would not have changed the flavor but would have added nutrition.) I agree that this would give you lots of energy to meet your day. I can't wait to try it when I get some more flax oil!
