INGREDIENTS:

2 Apples (we used Gala, but you can use your favorite)
1 cinnamon stick
1/2 cup spiced cider
1 tablespoon butter or butter substitute
2 tablespoons per whole apple of sunflower butter low added sugar (or your favorite low sugar nut butter)
1 teaspoon per whole apple of brown sugar
2 tablespoons per whole apple of a low sugar granola (we used Bear Naked)
Dash of cinnamon
Dash of nutmeg
Spoonful of Greek yogurt

DIRECTIONS:

1. Preheat oven to 350º.
2. Halve and core apples (a melon baller works great).
3. Pour 1/4 cup apple cider or water, a cinnamon stick and butter or butter substitute in the bottom of a 8×8 glass baking dish.
4. Place apples in the dish.
5. Sprinkle the apples and liquid with cinnamon.
6. Mix the brown sugar, sunflower butter and granola in a bowl.
7. Spoon 1-2 Tbs of mixture into each apple.
8. Cover with a few grains of granola.
9. Sprinkle with just a touch of nutmeg.
10. Bake for 25-30 minutes uncovered; cover and cook another 10 minutes until the apples are nice and soft.
11. Serve warm with Greek yogurt.

*Low phosphorous version leave off the sunflower butter.

*Lower sugar version use water instead of spiced cider under the apples and add 1 tsp of vanilla. Also use brown sugar substitute and rolled oats instead of granola.
