This recipe for breakfast baked apple with granola crumble combines the best of fall in a warm, filling, and satisfying breakfast: baked apples, fall spice, yogurt, and a granola crisp! You can even bake the apples the night before for a quick, fuss-free brunch!
Ingredients
  • 6 semi-sweet apples
  • 1 cup of granola, either homemade or store-bought
  • ½ cup of vanilla yogurt or Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup of water
  • 2 Tbsp. softened butter
  • 1 Tbsp. flour
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • ½ tsp. nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp. ginger
  • ¼ tsp. nutmeg (You can also use 1 Tbsp. pumpkin pie spice and 1 tsp. cinnamon)
  • ¼ tsp. salt
Instructions
  1. Heat the oven to 375°.
  2. Combine the spices in a small bowl.
  3. Core the apples then set into a baking pan or casserole dish. Sprinkle the spice blend, salt, and vanilla on top of the apples, dot with small bits of butter, then pour the water into the bottom of the pan.
  4. Place the apples in the oven for half an hour to forty minutes, or until the apples are soft.
  5. While the apples are cooking, combine the granola with 1 tablespoon of butter and the tablespoon of flour with either a fork or your fingers.
  6. Take the pan out of the oven. The water will probably have evaporated, but if not, take the apples out and pour out the water. Put the apples back into the pan, fill with the yogurt, and top with the granola crumble mixture.
  7. Place the apples back into the oven for 10 more minutes, or until the granola crumbled mixture is cooked through (you’re cooking the flour and butter).
  8. If you’d rather not have the yogurt warmed, you can cook the apples and granola crumble mixture together, then pour the yogurt over top.
  9. Serve!
