Oaty Kiwifruit Bar

One of the things I don't like is having food go to waste.
Sometimes in this house food is left and past its freshest to eat raw especially with fruit.
As I see throwing it out a waste of money, I will make a recipe even if it means inventing it myself to use the food up.

This is a recipe like a microwave one I have made in the past but changed to suit cooking in the oven.

450g firm Kiwifruit
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoon cornflour
2 cups Flour
1 cup rolled oats
4 tablespoon ground almonds
1/2 cup brown Sugar
1 teaspoon Baking Powder
170g butter

Preheat the oven to 180C.
Grease a 9 x 9 baking tray.
Peel the kiwifruit and cut into small chunks. (or scoop flesh out and cut into quarters)
Combine kiwifruit, 1st brown sugar and cornflour in a bowl and mix.
Let stand while you prepare the rest of the bar.
In another big bowl, mix together flour, oats, almonds, brown sugar and baking powder.
Heat butter until just melted and add to dry ingredients mixing until it resembles coarse crumbs. Spread 3/4 of the mixture into the pan and press lightly with the back of a spoon to pack it a little tight.
Spread kiwifruit mixture carefully and evenly on top.
Sprinkle the  rest of the oat mixture over the top and pat lightly again.
Bake until light golden brown on top, about 30 to 40 minutes.
Remove from the oven and let it cool before cutting into squares.
