Breakfast Baked Apple


1/2 cup – reduced fat granola

1/4 cup – dried cranberries

1/4 cup – walnuts, finely chopped

1 3/4 cup – fat free or lowfat milk

1/2 teaspoon – ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon – ground nutmeg

6 – sweet-tart baking apples (such as Rome), top half peeled, cored

1 tablespoon – honey, divided

For Serving:

3 cup fat free milk; ½ cup per apple



Preheat oven to 375°F. Lightly coat a 2-qt. baking dish with nonstick spray. Combine the granola, dried cranberries, walnuts, milk, and spices in a small bowl. Let stand for 10 minutes to help absorb the milk.

 Arrange the apples, peeled side up, in the baking dish and evenly divide the granola among the cavities of the apples. Cover the dish and bake the apples for 30 minutes; remove the foil and bake another 15 to 20 minutes or until tender when pierced with the tip of a sharp knife. Transfer each apple to a shallow serving bowl and drizzle each with a teaspoon of honey and additional ½ cup of milk per apple.
