Slow Cooker Baked Apples
Enjoy for breakfast with plain Greek yogurt, or serve with vanilla bean ice cream for dessert!
Ready in 2 hours 10 minutes
Serves : 5
5 medium-sized gala apples
5 (1/8) cups granola – I used “Bare Naked Original Cinnamon”
2 Tbsp. melted butter
5 tsp. maple syrup
ice cream or whipped cream for serving; (if making dessert)
Cut a layer off the top of the apples with a knife.
With a melon baller tool, or a measuring teaspoon, remove the core and seeds from each apple.
Pack ⅛ cup granola into each apple, and place into the slow cooker.
Drizzle the apples evenly with the melted butter, and add a teaspoon of maple syrup to each apple.
Cover, and cook on high for 2 to 2½ hours until tender, but not falling apart.
Serve as is, or add ice cream or whipped cream.
