2 Red Delicious or McIntosh apples, peeled halfway from top and cored
1/4 cup low-fat granola cereal
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Microwave on high 2 minutes, or until apples are soft. Let sit 2 to 3

That recipe sounds positively divine. . .especially nice considering I’m an apple fanatic. LOL. Interesting use of the parenthesis around the “baked” too. I never would have thought that you could essentially microwave a home-made desert and make it sound (and more than likely taste) so delicious. Besides, why would we need to bake this dish anyway? Granola is already crunchy and apples don’t need any sort of darkening or crispiness.
