Healthy Apple Pan Granola

Kids need breakfast to rev up their brain-teachers are not an exception to the rule! But we're busy, and watching our weight...

Here's a great breakfast loaded with healthy carbs that is quick and easy! I suggest making it the night before-it's great re-heated :)

Toasting the granola reduces calories but not taste-the granola adds just enough crunch to the sweet n’ spiced apples.
Ingredients
· 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
· 3 cups store-bought oat granola
· 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
· 1 tablespoon sugar, plus 1/4 cup
· 5 crisp apples (I suggest Braeburn) peeled, cored and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
· 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
· 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
2. Melt the butter in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add the granola, 1 tablespoon of the flour and 1 tablespoon sugar and toss until the sugar is dissolved and the granola is well-coated. Transfer to a bowl; set aside.
3. Pour the apples into the skillet; toss with the cinnamon, lime juice and remaining 1/4 cup sugar. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the apples are juicy and slightly softened, about ten minutes. Stir in the remaining 1 tablespoon flour. Scatter the reserved granola mixture evenly over the top and transfer into a pan, then into the oven. Bake until the crisp is bubbling and the apples are tender, about 35 to 40 minutes.
4. Mix the mixture together and refrigerate over night.
5. Microwave portions in the morning-this will easily feed the whole family!
