Warm and sweet with a hint of cinnamon, these apples are a family favorite. We've made Baked Breakfast Apples with every type of apple and they always taste great but the texture will vary. Top them with your favorite low-fat yogurt and granola and it feels like your eating apple pie for breakfast...but it's so much more healthy!
- 4 large Golden Delicious, Granny Smith or Jonathan apples
- ⅓ cup brown sugar packed
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 cup apple juice
- 1 cup vanilla non-fat yogurt
- 1 cup low-fat granola
Heat oven to 375 degrees.
Core apples and place in a baking dish. Combine sugar and cinnamon, then spoon into the center of each apple.
Pour apple juice over the apples and bake for 60 minutes or until tender when pierced with a sharp knife; basing every 15 minutes.
To serve, place each apple in a bowl and cut into 8 wedges forming a flower shape. Fill each apple with ¼ cup of yogurt, then sprinkle with granola.
