This recipe for Baked Apples with Granola bakes one of my kids’ favorite Fall fruits and topping it with granola, with a little butter and brown sugar. Adding in some cinnamon and nutmeg brings back those classic apple pie flavor but without the crust and baking in a lot less time. Adding the crunchy granola gives this healthy treat a nice play on textures – but don’t forget to top it off with some French vanilla ice cream to make it a complete dessert!
524 per serving
- 3 Fuji apples, halved
- 1-1/2 cup granola
- 1 stick unsalted butter, melted
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoons ground nutmeg
- vanilla ice cream, for topping
Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Take the halved apples and core the middle, taking out the seeds and creating a scooped out center.
In a large bowl, gently toss the granola with 5 tablespoons butter, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg.
Take the rest of the melted butter and brush the apples thoroughly with butter.
Top the halved apples with granola. Bake in the oven for 30-35 minutes, uncovered.
After about 35 minutes, let slightly cool and top with ice cream and/or whipped cream.
