1-1/2 cups low-fat granola
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
6 medium to large Granny Smith apples
3 tablespoons butter
1 cup apple cider
8 ounces vanilla yogurt
1 tablespoon honey

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Place granola, cinnamon and maple syrup in a small bowl and combine well.

Scoop out the core from the top of each apple. Cut a small slice off the bottom so that it sit flat, but do not cut into the core opening.

Stuff each apple with 1/4 cup of the granola mixture and dot with 1/2 tablespoon butter. Place in a shallow baking dish and pour apple cider around apples. Bake the apples, basting occasionally, about 1 hour, or until fork-tender and caramelized.

Mix together yogurt and honey, drizzle over apples.

Makes: 6 servings

Notes: Apple juice can be substituted for apple cider.
1/3 cup of rasins can be added to granola mixture.
Serve with vanilla ice cream.
