Meanwhile, spread the oats over a large baking tray and toast in the oven for 5-10 minutes until golden brown. Leave to cool while you prepare the rest of the ingredients.

Once the dates and figs are ready, pour them into a large bowl and add the goji berries, blueberries and flax seeds. Stir well to combine then leave to stand for 10 minutes. Turn the oven back on, this time to150°C (gas mark 2/300°F).

Line a tin with baking paper, leaving an overhang of paper for easy removal.

Leave to cool before slicing into pieces, then serve with a delicious green smoothie.
