Meryl says :
Here’s a quick and healthy alternative to packaged bars, packed full of dried fruits and nuts with raisins, sultanas, apricots, cherries, cranberries, dates, almonds, pistachios, walnuts, flaked coconut or seeds as you prefer. I like the tangy taste from the lemon juice and I don’t add the sugar. They’re perfect for a picnic or an ‘on the go’ option.
