Enjoy this healthy Fruit ‘n’ Nut Bar taken from RTE's Operation Transformation.
Fruit ‘n’ Nut Bar
235g Porridge Oats
130g Apple Compote (shop-bought or see separate recipe)
250ml Low Fat Milk (1.5% fat)
1 ½ tsp Baking Powder (7.5g)
1 tbsp Honey (15g)
1 tsp Vanilla Extract (5g)
30g chopped Mixed Nuts
Preheat the oven to 160°C/325°F.
Line a 17.5cm square baking tin with parchment paper.
Place all the ingredients in a large bowl.
Using a wooden spoon, stir until evenly mixed.
Pour into the baking tin and place in the oven.
Bake for 25-30 minutes until golden brown.
To test, insert a skewer or toothpick into the centre of a square and it should come out clean.
The square will also smell cooked and be springy to the touch.
Leave to cool completely in the tin and then cut into 12 even-sized bars.
Arrange a fruit ‘n’ nut bar on a plate with a piece of fruit to serve.
