4 large apples (Jonagold, Rome Beauty, or Granny Smith)
1/2 cup low-fat granola
2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
1-1/2 cups unsweetened apple cider or juice
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Core the apples from the stem end, leaving the base to form a well. Arrange the apples in a shallow baking dish.
Fill each apple with 2 tablespoons of granola and drizzle the maple syrup over the apples. Pour the cider or juice into the baking dish.
Bake uncovered, basting occasionally, for 40 minutes or until tender. If the cider evaporates, add more to the dish. Serve the apples hot, at room temperature, or chilled, with the leftover liquid from the dish spooned over them.
