  • 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.

Expert Tips

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