Gerbs Granola Baked Apples
4 large apples, we love local McIntosh freshly picked
1 cup Gerbs 5 Seed Granola (any will work)
1/2 cup Gerbs Rolled Oats
½ cup Gerbs dried Cinnamon Apple Cubes
¼ cup Gerbs Bread Crumbs
1/2 cup Brown Sugar
2 tablespoons coconut sugar (unsalted butter sub)
4 tablespoons coconut oil – split in half
3/4 teaspoon Gerbs ground cinnamon
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1 tsp. sea salt
1 cup apple cider – Fresh is best
Gerbs Dark Chocolate Chips – mini’s
Gerbs Jumbo Raisins (soak & re-hydrate)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Scoop out inside of all 4 apples. Place the apples in a small baking dish. In a small bowl, mix together the granola, sugar, vanilla, salt, dried apple cubes, coconut oil and cinnamon. Spoon & stuff the granola mixture into the apples. In another small bowl, add rolled oats, bread crumbs, brown sugar, & oil (butter) mix together – top onto apples.
Pour the cider around the apples in the dish, loosely cover the dish with foil and bake, basting occasionally, until the apples are tender when pierced with a fork, about 45 minutes. Set aside to cool (15 minutes) coat with powder sugar (optional).
