Healthy|Baked Apples stuffed with Granola!


Apples and oatmeal for breakfast? Sound boring?

Well, how about Baked Apples stuffed with granola?

Mmmm!! Can’t you just smell the cinnamon and cloves throughout your home?

This recipe makes a great breakfast, snack or dessert. The granola filling pares wonderfully with the tart apple!
Select a firm apple when baking apples. Some apples will become mushy when baked. They’re fine when making applesauce, but not best for this recipe. I like a tart apple so today I am choosing Granny Smith Apples. My husband loves red delicious apples….so I included those for him!

You will need:
  • 4 apples (Fujj, Granny Smith, Honey Crisp)
  • ¼ cup agave or maple syrup
  • ¼ cup gluten free oats
  • ¼ cup raisins
  • ¼ cup walnuts chopped
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • Pinch of cloves
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon non-dairy butter

Preheat oven to 375 degrees


Thoroughly wash apples, remove the cores of the apples. Core the apple making a ¾” tunnel through the middle of the apple leaving about 1/2” in the bottom of the tunnel. This way the apple is solid on the bottom of the apple.

Mix all other ingredients in a bowl, divide between the apples, and firmly pack filling in apples.
Place apples in a baking dish, topping each apple with non-dairy butter.

Pour 1 cup hot water in the base of the baking dish. Cover loosely with aluminum foil.
Bake for 20 minutes. Remove foil and bake another 20-30 minutes. Test if done by poking knife down the center of the apple into the apple. It should slide in easily. note: the apple skins will be wrinkled!

Remove from pan and serve!

Bon appetite
