Saturday Shortcut


If you are in need of a quick dessert or breakfast side…listen up!  This easy combination of on hand ingredients is a mix between baked apples and apple crisp. 

By using granola instead of a buttery crumb topping, this dish is definitely more figure friendly and packed full of apple-y goodness. Perfect for the late night munchies or brunch the next day.




Granola Baked Apples

  • 4 apples
  • 1 1/2 T flour
  • 1/2 of a lemon, juiced
  • 1 T sugar
  • 2 t cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 C granola (homemade or store bought) –or enough to top apples

-Peel, core and chop apples.  Add flour, sugar, cinnamon and lemon juice.  Mix together.  Put in the bottom of a ramekin or baking dish and bake at 375 degrees for 35 minutes or until apples are tender.  Top with granola and put back in the oven for 5 additional minutes.  Serve warm.






Serve with reduced fat ice cream for an added dimension of flavor.  Enjoy!
