Microwave apples for approximately 3 minutes on high, or until apples are slightly softened. Sprinkle cranberries over cooked apples.
While apples are cooking, place oats, walnuts, brown sugar, and butter in the bowl of a food processor and pulse about 15 times until mixture is well combined and resembles damp sand.

Bake 12-15 minutes or until apples are bubbly and tender, and topping is golden.
