No-stick cooking spray
4 cups old-fashioned oats
1 cup (about 6 ounces) chopped Sunsweet® pitted prunes
1 cup chopped walnuts
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar

Heat oven to 350ºF. Generously spray 15 x 10-inch baking pan with cooking spray; set aside. In large bowl combine oats, dried plums, walnuts, cinnamon and salt; set aside. In medium saucepan, combine brown sugar and butter. Heat to melt butter and dissolve sugar, stirring to blend well. Pour butter mixture over oat mixture, stirring to coat all ingredients.
