Recipe: Sweet Baked Apples with Crunchy Granola

It’s rare that you’ll find a dessert in my house that doesn’t contain fruit.

In most cases it’ll be apples and berries. But on the rare occasion that I want to shake things up, you’ll find mangos or strawberries on your dessert plate.

Since there’s always apples on the counter, they make the treat menu most often. People love apples of all kinds, and they’re natural sweetness lends well to baking.

When I was growing up my mom used remove the core from apples and bake them whole in the oven with butter, sugar and cinnamon stuffed in the middle.

That sugary goodness would drip down the side of the apple and caramelize along the way. They were amazing!

Apples and GranolaAfter a quick bake in the oven, we scooped our apples into bowls, then crumbled the granola on top.

    Baked apples were big at my house when I was a kid, too. We’ll often microwave them with flavorings for a quickie snack. Haven’t combine baked apples with granola, though — I gotta try this! Thanks.
