The Dish
These baked apples are a wonderful, versatile meal solution, and can be enjoyed for breakfast, dessert, or as a snack. Pick your favorite apples (we love sweet-tart honey crisp or fuji apples), remove the core, and drizzle with olive oil and honey (or agave or maple syrup). Sprinkle with a little bit of cinnamon and bake until tender…it’s that simple. The baked apples, once cooled, are then topped with plain greek yogurt and granola. We like drizzling a little of the reserved pan juices over the entire dish before eating.  

Hacking this Recipe: Feel free to bake the apples the night before for ease of assembly in the morning. Baked apples will keep, refrigerated, for 2-3 days. 

Pro Tip: Honey makes for great-tasting, carmelized goodness when baked, but it also loses nutritional value in the process, so keep this in mind.

4 each (850 g) apples, cored 
2 tablespoons (30 ml) olive oil 
2 tablespoons (30 ml) honey or agave (or maple syrup)
1/2 teaspoon (1 g) ground cinnamon 
7 oz (200 g) plain greek yogurt 
1 cup (100 g) granola


  • Preheat oven to 375°F or 190°C. 
  • Line a casserole dish with aluminum foil. Add apples to the casserole dish and drizzle with olive oil and honey/agave/maple syrup. Season with cinnamon and cover the casserole dish with additional foil. 
  • Bake apples for 30-40 minutes or until tender. Remove from the oven, uncover, and set aside to cool. 
  • Once cooled, top apples with yogurt and granola. Drizzle topped apples with pan juices before serving.  

Vegetarian and Vegan Modifications: Feel free to substitute the yogurt in this recipe for your favorite vegan substitute, and use agave or maple syrup in place of honey.   

Gluten-Free Modifications: Gluten-free granola will work very well as a substitution for the traditional granola in this recipe.
