1 Line the ovenproof dish with the baking parchment and preheat the oven to 160°C (325°F/Gas 3). Finely chop the cranberries with a knife or blitz them in the food processor.
2 Place the butter, sugar, honey, and lemon juice in a small pan and stir over a moderate heat until the sugar has completely dissolved. Combine the cranberries, oats, almonds, and sunflower seeds in a bowl. Carefully stir in the butter mixture, making sure everything is coated.
3 Transfer the mixture to the ovenproof dish, smooth the surface, and press it down slightly. Bake in the centre of the oven for about 20 minutes.
4 Remove and leave to cool in the dish. Use the parchment paper to lift it out of the dish, then slice into 12 bars.
