To my “dessert for breakfast” friends, this one’s for you!

Healthy easy baked apple recipe stuffed with homemade cinnamon granola, a dollop of Greek yogurt and a drizzle of honey. Packed with whole grains, fiber and protein, it’s my healthier twist on apple pie a la mode.

I, Alexandra, am a huge fan of making my own granola. Once you work your way through a few batches, you’ll know that it really couldn’t be easier.

Plus, it’s a great way to control the type and amount of sweetener. Of all the options out there, I tend to opt for natural sweeteners, like honey and maple syrup.

Yes, sugar is sugar, but at least these varieties come with a handful of vitamins and minerals. Every bit counts, right? Plus you can make the granola ahead of time for minimal assemble throughout the week…

These stuffed apples can be made ahead of time, and reheated as needed. Place pre-cooked apple in a baking dish with a tablespoon or two of water in the bottom. Bake at 350 degrees for 5-10 minutes until apple is heated through.

Then, top as normal. Make a batch of these granola-stuffed breakfast apples for dessert breakfast all week!

Instructions

For the homemade granola -

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Combine the rolled oats, walnuts, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, a pinch of salt and brown sugar in a bowl. Make a well in the center, then add in the honey and canola oil. Stir to combine until oats are completely wet and no dry clumps remain.
  • Spread on a baking sheet (preferably lined with non-stick parchment paper) and bake for 15 minutes.
  • Remove from oven, stir once, then cook another 5-10 minutes until golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool completely before touching. The cooling process is what allows clumps to form! Granola will keep in an air-tight container for up to two weeks.

For the stuffed apples -

  • Prepare the apples. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Place apples, cut side up in a baking dish with sides so the apples don’t fall. Dot apples with butter, then drizzle with honey and sprinkle with cinnamon.
  • Pour ¼ cup water into the bottom of the baking dish and cover with foil. Bake until apples are soft, about 35-40 minutes. Uncover and remove from oven, then stuff with prepared spiced granola.
  • Bake, uncovered, another 10 minutes to allow granola to be warmed through. Remove from oven and allow to cool at least 5 minutes before placing apples in a bowl. Spoon ½ cup yogurt over each apple, then top with more honey and granola.
