Apple, Date and Walnut Breakfast Bars

These breakfast bars are a great snack for the afternoon. Oats are a good choice when it comes to the health of your digestive system and can ease constipation. They contain soluble fibre in the form of beta-glucan, which dissolves inside the digestive tract where it forms a gel. Dates have been identified as one of the very best sweet and versatile foods that can regulate the digestive process, and they have been shown to help provide relief from a range of intestinal disorders.
