Healthy Easy Baked Apple Recipe with Spiced Granola and Yogurt
This fall favorite for an easy baked apple recipe is the perfect warm and cozy dessert idea...
Servings: 4 stuffed apples
- 2 cups
- 1 cup
- 1 tsp
- 1/2 tsp
- 1/4 tsp
- 2 tbsp brown sugar
- 2 tbsp flour
- 1/3 cup honey
- 1/4 cup canola oil
- 4 cored apples
- 2 tbsp unsalted butter
- 1 tbsp honey + more for drizzling as a garnish
- 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
- 2 cups low fat yogurt
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.
