Spelt & Oat Fruit Bars

These are a delicious easy option for a sweet treat based on good ingredients. Keeping all the ingredients natural and minimising the sugar makes these a sugar savvy sweet treat. Similar to my other half’s flapjacks but a bit more refined as I blend most of the oats to oat flour. I like to have a tray of these so that I can put one in my daughter’s lunchbox on a Friday. They are so easy to make and can be whipped up and in the oven in minutes.
