Oat, Date and Apple Traybake step by step

  4. Evenly spread half the oat mixture into the tin and press down firmly to create a base, spread the date and apple mix on top and smooth over. Mix in an extra 25-50g oats to the oat mixture in the pan at this point (this wasn't in the recipe but I thought the mixture needed a bit of dryness to crumble nicely, and I was right)..
