Granola Stuffed Baked Apple

It’s Monday again?! What the? Well, don’t fret. New week, new goals – LETS DO THIS. And I have the perfect breakfast treat for you to start your week off with…

What is the best part of apple pie? THE APPLES. Cinnamon, sweet, tangy, and goupy… that last word may not sound the most appetizing, but it’s true! The apples are goupy. And I love it! The best part about this dish is that it tastes like apple pie, but a way healthier version. So healthy that I made it for breakfast this morning πŸ™‚apples

I love anything tangy and tart, which is why I used a granny smith apple! They are lower in natural sugar too, which is a plus. If you aren’t into tart flavors, feel free to use whatever kind of happy you fancy.IMG_8213

Single servings. If you struggle with portion control, than single serving dishes are your new best friend. You can eat ALL of it and know that you still only ate the amount that was intended for you. Not the amount intended of 10 people. Raise your hand if you’ve been there before (my hand is raised).IMG_8214 IMG_8217

Ugh, warm cinnamon apples with crunchy granola on top. The PERFECT chilly day breakfast OR dessert! Topped with some greek yogurt and we’re in business.
