She's shared her amazing skincare secrets with us for years but now Beauty Guru Liz gives us tips for looking good through eating healthy. 

These mini bars are a brilliant treat for when you fancy something sweet or for giving you an energy boost. I put them into children’s lunch boxes and take a few with me when travelling. The recipe is not an exact science and I make my batches each time depending on what’s in the cupboards. Just stick to the rough proportions and add your personal favourites. Simply whiz all of the ingredients in a food processor until they form a firm dough ball.  Take out of the mixing bowl and press into a lightly oiled loaf tin or baking tray. Press the dough into the pan to a thickness of around 2 cm.  Alternatively, roll into a thick sausage shape and cover with tin foil. Place in the fridge to set for an hour or so. Cut into cubes or slices and enjoy! 



What you'll need:

50g each of dates, dried apricots and sunflower seeds

100g raisins

100g porridge oats

30g wheatgerm

25g medium oatmeal

20g linseeds

25g goji berries and/or dried cherries

Juice and grated zest of 1 lemon

2 tablespoons cold-pressed rapeseed oil, plus a drizzle to grease the tin

Liz is passionate about beauty, natural health and wellbeing. She juggles her professional life with bringing up a family of five children, with her husband Patrick, living on a thriving organic farm in the West Country.
