BAKED APPLE WITH APPLE COMPOTE

METHOD

+

BAKED APPLE

Preheat the oven to 180c.

Mix together the dried fruit, sugar, zest, spices and butter. Spoon the fruit mixture into the holes of the cored apples, pressing in to fill them well. Place the stuffed apples into an ovenproof dish, and into the oven to bake for approx 20- 30 minutes. When the butter has melted then keep spooning the mix over the apples and serve with a dollop of Greek yoghurt.

Place all the above into a small pan with a tight-fitting lid. Bring up to a low heat, then cook for 15-20 minutes stirring now and again but make sure to leave it a little chunky. Leave to cool.

Serve with yogurt and some granola.
