Want some­thing sweet and desserty with­out all the work and calo­ries? This easy and sim­ple dessert has lightly sweet­ened, home­made rich fla­vors and a crunchy tex­ture. This top­ping also works great on pears or peaches. When I’ve acci­den­tally cut a pear before it had ripened enough for raw eat­ing, I’ll roast the pear halves in the oven until soft. The oven roast­ing brings out the nat­ural sug­ars in the fruit and caramelizes it. So delicious!

ingre­di­ent details & prep

  • 2 apples, halved and cored
  • 1 tbl maple syrup
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 cup granola
  • 1/2 tbl melted butter


Heat oven to 350°. Line a bak­ing sheet with foil or parch­ment paper. Arrange apples on bak­ing sheet, cut sides up. Drizzle maple syrup on top and sprin­kle with sugar. Com­bine gra­nola and but­ter, sprin­kle over apples. Baked 30 min­utes until apples are soft and top­ping is lightly browned.

Other options: Try pears or peaches in place of apples. Try a fla­vored gra­nola cereal, such as Target’s Archer Farm’s Maple French Toast gra­nola. Top with whipped cream or serve with ice cream.
