Cinnamon Sugar Baked Apples With Granola, Skyr And Honey

Ingredients

4 apples, stems removed and cored (“Mom” prefers organic)

1/2 tbsp raw sugar

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

1/2 cup granola of choice (“Mom” prefers Viki’s Granola)

1/2 cup Icelandic Provisions Plain Skyr

Honey, to taste

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 350˚F. Mix together the sugar and cinnamon. Add apples to a baking dish (rub dish with a little olive oil or coconut oil to prevent sticking) and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.

Serves 4.

1 cup Organic Greek Yogurt (“Mom” prefers Stonyfield Farm)

Strawberries, diced

Prepare work area for little ones, setting out the diced fruit, organic yogurt, and granola in separate containers within reach.

Sprinkle 1 – 1/2 tsp. of granola on bottom of each muffin cup.

FroYo 4

Top with dollop of organic yogurt.

Place a small amount of fruit on top of yogurt, and once completed, place in freezer until frozen.

We found that the FroYo Bites needed to be set out on a plate for a few minutes before being eaten so they were a bit easier to eat.

YUM!
