Juice of 1 lemon
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup dried cranberries (or raisins, or dried cherries, blueberries or apricots)
2 cups rolled oats

Preheat oven to 375°F. Spray a 9x13 casserole dish with PAM or another nonstick spray.
Place the apples in a bowl and drizzle with the lemon juice. Mix thoroughly, then spread half in the casserole dish.
