Super Healthy Breakfast Apple CrispIngredients:
2 medium sized apples, peeled, cored and sliced fairly thin
3 Tbsp honey
1 Tbsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
approximately 1/4 cup granola (any kind)
Vanilla yogurt (I used Greek--it's amazing and tastes like ice cream)
*This recipe makes two servings, and takes about ten minutes start to finish to make.*
1. Put your sliced apples in a microwave safe bowl. Sprinkle the cinnamon and nutmeg on top, then drizzle with 2 of the 3 Tbsp of honey (save the other one for the topping).
2. Steam your apples in the microwave on high for 3-4 minutes, depending on the thickness of your apples and how soft you want them. I like super soft apples I can cut with a spoon, so mine went in for the full four minutes. I use an embarrassingly low-tech way of steaming my apples. I put them in my bowl, then I put a microwave safe plate over the top. This forms enough of a seal that my apples get perfectly steamed! But if you have a classier way of steaming things in the microwave, feel free.
See what I mean? Pretty low-tech.
3. When the apples are done steaming, let them sit for about two minutes. This will let them get cool enough that the cinnamon and honey will come together into a delicious syrup, and the yogurt won't melt when you add it. When you take off the lid, it will look like this:
Also, I'm using hot pads in this picture for a reason! The bowl and plate will be HOT. So please be careful!
4. Stir your apples to evenly coat in the honey and spices, then top with your granola and a scoop of yogurt. Drizzle the rest of the honey on top, then devour! This recipe officially got Husband and Child tested last Sunday morning and it was a huge hit. My husband has already requested a peach version as well as a mixed berry. Enjoy!
