Berry Baked Apples
Enjoy these apples any time of day, warm or cold. Use whatever dried fruit you have on hand and, for that matter, whatever berries (fresh or frozen) you have as well. For a special occasion, a little sprinkle of granola or dollop of ice cream will make this a "sometimes" food that still brings a lot of nutrition to the table.Tip: Microwaving your apple for too long might cause them to explode. They'll taste just as good, but look messier. If you have the time and want picture-perfect fruit, drop your microwave power to 50% and let them cook roughly twice as long.
