Lighter Apple Strudel

4 medium apples -- peeled, cored and thinly sliced

1/2 cup brown sugar -- unpacked
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup old-fashioned rolled oats -- uncooked
3 tablespoons fat-free margarine

Preheat oven to 350°F.
Stir together apples, 1/4 cup of brown sugar, cinnamon and lemon juice; pour into a 1 1/2 quart baking dish.
Cut flour, oatmeal, remaining brown sugar and margarine together with a pastry blender or fork in a medium bowl; sprinkle over apple mixture.
Bake until apples are tender and top is browned, about 45 minutes.

Yields about 1/2 cup per serving.

Meghann's notes: I use an apple corer, slice each chunk in half again, and leave the skins on, unless you are serving to a small child.

Faster: can be done in the microwave, about 5 minutes.

Lighter: skip the flour, use ICBINB spray butter, use Splenda brown sugar.
