Directions

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Coat a large (15¼ by-15¼ inch) jellyroll-style pan with cooking spray.

Spread oats and walnuts on a baking sheet with sides.

Transfer to a large bowl and add puffed cereal, dried apricots, flour and salt; stir to combine.

Meanwhile, purée tofu, egg, oil, honey, vanilla and lemon zest in a food processor or blender until smooth, scraping down the sides as needed.
