Good-for-you apples and oat-filled granola bars create a homey dessert. The microwave makes it extra-easy.
Updated Jul 11, 2017

Ingredients

  • 2 large crisp apples (such as Braeburn, Gala or Fuji)
  • 2 tablespoons raisins or sweetened dried cranberries
  • 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 4 teaspoons butter or margarine, softened
  • 4 Nature Valley™ crunchy granola bars (2 pouches from 8.9-oz box) (any flavor), crushed
  • Milk, cream or fruit-flavored yogurt, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Cut apples in half lengthwise. Using spoon, remove and discard cores, making at least a 1-inch indentation in each apple half. In microwavable pie plate, arrange apple halves, cut sides up. If needed, cut thin slice off bottoms to keep halves from tipping.
  • 2
    Fill each apple half evenly with raisins and brown sugar; dot with butter. Cover with microwavable plastic wrap, folding back one edge 1/4 inch to vent steam.
  • 3
    Microwave on High 5 to 6 minutes or until apples are tender. Top each with granola. Serve with milk.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Traditional baking apples such as Granny Smith, Rome Beauty and Greening can also be used for a less-sweet taste.
  • tip 2
    Easily crush the granola bars right in the pouch with your fingers.
