Strawberry Oat Traybake

Looking through one of my cooking magazines i came across this tray bake, and thought it would be perfect for my sons celebration.

Although they are a cake they are quite good for you too, as they have honey instead of sugar, and fruit, nuts and oats, and only a small amount of butter.

They aren't too sweet and to me they taste just like a crumble. Yummy!!!!!!

Preheat oven 200c, 400f gas mark 6
Makes 16 slices

150g strawberries mashed
50g butter, plus extra for greasing
75g clear honey
200g rolled oats
50g ground almonds
½ tsp almond extract
pinch of salt

Grease a 26 x 16cm tray with butter, this was the perfect size for the amount of ingredients.

Melt the butter and honey with the pinch of salt.
Stir in the ground almonds, almond extract and oats.
Press half the mixture into the tray, spread over the mashed strawberries and sprinkle with the rest of the mixture.
Bake for 15/18 minutes.
Let cool in tray then cut into 16 slices.
