Raspberry 10

These oat bars are a family favourite & crowd-pleaser. They are packed with juicy raspberries & the grated lemon gives them a fresh zingy lift.

By using sugar-free apple sauce you can reduce the amount of fat you need, plus the apple-sauce also offers natural sweetness & moisture. By using coconut oil, this recipe can be made into a vegan one.
