Stovetop Baked Apples Recipe

Stovetop Baked Apples Recipe

This makes a fabulous quick-and-easy dessert: it takes so much less time than the oven-baked version, but the results are just as healthful and delicious. They may be served warm or cold, and you can even fill the hollowed apples with granola for a super-nutritious breakfast. A lovely treat for the holidays that won’t break your calorie allowance for the day!

4 to 6 very large baking apples (Granny Smiths are good)
1 1/2 cups vegetarian mincemeat or granola

1. Scrub and core apples.

2. Stuff hollows with about 1/4 cup mincemeat or granola, then place apples in a 10” lidded skillet or pan and pour in water to a depth of 1”.

3. Bring water to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 20 minutes.

4. If you want your granola to have a crispy topping, finish cooked apples under the broiler 6” from heat source, checking often to prevent burning. Serve warm or cold.

Serves 4 to 6.

I am blaming my purse! And getting a new one.

Good news. Need more food chains to follow suit, worldwide.

I buy/use none of those. Have too many re-usable grocery 'sacks'. I like bags, all different kinds…
