Cranberry Granola Spiced Apples

Vegetable-oil cooking spray
6 Rome apples
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup granola
2 tablespoons light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces

Raspberry Glaze:

3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup raspberry jam

  1. Prepare the apples: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly coat a baking dish with cooking spray. Wash, dry, and core the apples, leaving the bottoms intact. Brush apple flesh with lemon juice. Arrange apples in the baking dish.
  2. Make the stuffing: Toss cranberries with granola, brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Spoon into apples and top with butter pieces.
  3. Make the glaze: Heat lemon juice and jam together in a microwave oven at 100 percent power in a glass bowl until mixture bubbles — about 30 seconds. Brush apples with the mixture and drizzle extra topping into the filled apples.
  4. Bake and serve: Place baking dish on the middle rack of oven and bake uncovered until apples are soft — about 55 minutes. Serve warm.
