Baked Stuffed Apples
Serves 4

Enjoy your favorite types of apples in this easy-to-make dessert.

4 large apples (such as Jonagold, Rome Beauty, or Granny Smith)
1/2 cup low-fat granola
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 1/2 cups apple cider or apple juice, or more if needed

1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Core the apples from the stem end, leaving the base intact to form a well. Arrange the apples in a shallow baking dish.

2. Fill each apple with 2 tablespoons granola, and drizzle the maple syrup over the apples. Pour the cider into the baking dish.

3. Bake uncovered, basting occasionally, for 40 minutes or until the apples are tender. If the cider has almost evaporated, add enough fresh cider to cover the bottom of the dish.

4. Serve the apples hot, at room temperature, or chilled, with the cider syrup spooned over them.
