  2. Whisk the yoghurt, sugar and eggs in a large bowl until combined. Stir in the dates. Combine the flour, wheat germ and bicarbonate of soda in a medium bowl. Stir the flour mixture into the egg mixture until combined. Add the oats, linseed and coconut, and stir until combined.

Notes

TIP: Twist this recipe and make an apricot and almond bar instead. Replace the dates with 120g chopped dried apricots and the coconut with 50g chopped almonds.
