Vegan breakfast bars 

These vegan bars are tasty and full of delicious berry flavours. They are also easy to make at home too. All you need is, some orange or apple juice, jumbo rolled oats, crumbled Shredded Wheat Original® biscuit (45g), hazelnuts & almonds, dried apricots, raisins, and some sunflower seeds. 

Simply pop the apricots, raisins and juice into a food processor, and blend until you are left with a smooth puree. Transfer the puree to a large mixing bowl.
