Baked Green Apples

GTU Recipes

(Good Things Utah) – This truly is the most simple and delicious dessert that will transport you to your favorite piece of apple pie. Enjoy it while all the apples are in season!


  • 4 medium apples (Green, Fuji, Lucy Glo, or Honey Crisp)
  • ½ cup granola, divided into 4 equal parts (see my granola recipe on Instagram)
  • 2 Tablespoons melted butter, divided
  • 4 tsp. pure maple syrup, divided
  • Ice cream or whipped cream for serving


  1. Cut a layer off the top of the apples with a knife.
  2. Remove the core and the seeds from the apple.
  3. If apple is a little lopsided, make a small horizontal cut on the bottom too.
  4. Place apples in a glass baking dish lined with parchment paper
  5. Pack 2 tablespoons granola into each apple.
  6. Drizzle the apples evenly with melted butter and add a teaspoon of maple syrup to each apple.
  7. Cover with foil and bake in a 350 degree oven for 40 minutes or until apples are soft.
  8. Let cool and serve with a dollop of ice cream, whipping cream or crème fraiche.

Note: Apples can also be cut in half, coring part of the apple out of the center and granola placed on top with the other ingredients and baked the same way.
