Healthy Baking for Lunch Ideas

We have an 11 year old who gets food off others at school. I thought if I gave him some nice homecooked but healthy things to take to school this might help control this. I appreciate any ideas. He likes pretty much anything.

1 C flour

1/2 C brown sugar
2 T cocoa
1 C rolled oats
2 T golden syrup
1/2 t baking powder
handful of dried fruit (cranberries are awesome, but anything will do)

Mix well then microwave on High for 1 min, stir then repeat twice.
Press into a greased flat bottomed container and cook on high again for further 2 mins. You can ice this if you want.

Make up a batch of his favourite muffins. Wrap each separately in plastic wrap and freeze. Very easy to just grab 1 or 2 in the mornings.
