Tray bake; the healthy way!


So I came across this recipe from a really impressive recipe and resource book recipe for success; a nutritional toolkit focusing on healthy living to optimise performance in the area of GAA. This is something of huge interest with me and I’m doing this module with a Transition Year class.

I really want to share this recipe as it’s so impressive in relation to quality and taste and it’s healthy nature!


250g porridge oats

3 tbsp honey

50ml rapeseed/ sunflower oil

75g pumpkin, sunflower, Chia, flax

75g flaked almonds, hazelnuts, pecans

1 tbsp peanut butter

2 medium bananas (mashed)

1 Apple (peeled and grated)

15pg cranberries, chopped apricots, raisins, gojiberrirs, dates.

Dark choc melted to drizzle on top

*alter nuts/ mixed seeds etc to your liking.


1. Heat oven to 160 degrees Celsius. Grease and line a square tin with parchment paper.

2. In a large bowl add dry ingredients; oats, seeds etc. Make a well in centre.

3. Melt oil, peanut butter and honey in a saucepan or microwave until smooth consistency. Add in the mashed banana, apple and mixed to combine.

4. Pour the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix well. Tip into the prepared tin and level the surface.
