Baked Apples tossed in maple syrup and served with spiced yogurt and granola. Easy and healthy dessert, snack or breakfast!
Fall is in the air! Well, sort of. It’s still pretty warm here but I can dream can’t I?
What’s the weather like where you’re at? I’d like to think that making anything with pumpkin and apple will entice mother nature to turn summer into fall. 🙂 So that’s exactly what I’m doing.
So, apples. Have you ever tried baking apples before? It makes them crisp-tender and absolutely delicious. Adding a little spiced yogurt and granola on the top is like icing on the cake.
I’m all about desserts. I love having a little something sweet after dinner. This would also be good for breakfast or a snack, too.
You will love the flavors of the maple coated apples, cinnamon and nutmeg yogurt and crunchy granola. Not only is it delicious but it’s healthier too, with 6 grams of fiber and 5 grams of protein per serving!
- 4 apples cored and cut into 8 slices
- 3 Tbsp. pure maple syrup
- 1/2 Tbsp. butter melted
- 1/2 cup vanilla Greek yogurt
- 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
- pinch of nutmeg
- 1/2 cup lowfat granola
- Preheat oven to 400º F. Place apples, maple syrup, and butter in a 9x13" pan. Toss until apples are well coated. Roast, stirring occasionally until apples are crisp-tender, about 20 mins.
- Meanwhile, whisk together yogurt, cinnamon and nutmeg. When apples are finished cooking, spoon into bowls, sprinkle with granola and top with yogurt. Serve and enjoy!

Our fall weather has arrived and I couldn’t be happier! Baked apples are one of our favorite apple treats and the yogurt and granola additions are genius – healthier alternatives to ice cream and crumble without sacrificing flavor!
Nice and easy. Thanks Jen.
