Apple Oat Tart

This is an easy brunch or dessert dish you can throw together with some frozen cranberries and a few Granny Smith apples. The oats and fruit make this a higher-fiber treat.

    1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
    6 tablespoons unbleached white flour
    1/4 cup dark-brown sugar
    1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

    1/8 teaspoon salt

    1 tablespoon reduced-calorie pancake syrup

    3 large Granny Smith apples, cored and thinly sliced
    1 1/4 cups fresh or frozen cranberries
    2 tablespoons reduced-calorie pancake syrup
    1 tablespoon dark brown sugar
    2 teaspoon unbleached white flour
    2 teaspoons finely chopped orange zest
