apple granola bake

12 Jan

A very easy, satisfying, kid pleasing, moderately healthy recipe. The apple portion can be easily halved, but you will still need the same amount of granola/margarine for the topping…

Apple “filling”:
4 medium apples, sliced thin
1/2 cup dried cranberries
(1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans)
1/2 cup granola
2 cups apple juice
1 Tbsp lemon juice
2 tsp cinnamon or apple pie spice
(2 Tbsp cornstarch for a more cohesive bake)
(1/2 c brown sugar for added sweetness OR sub 1/3 c agave/maple syrup for 1/3 c of the apple juice)

Topping:
1 cup granola
1/4 cup margarine (1/2 stick), in pats

Preheat oven to 350. In a greased 8×8 baking pan, toss the apple slices, cranberries, granola & nuts. Whisk together the remaining “filling” ingredients and pour over the top. Sprinkle the 1 cup of granola over the top, and then top with pats of margarine. Bake for about 1 hour, until the apples are tender.

Serve with plain or vanilla soy/coconut yogurt, or other creamy concoction if desired.
