Most of the time I crave a substantial breakfast to get me through the morning. But every once in awhile I want something a little lighter. This delicious Baked Apple Bowl is perfect for those days. While I enjoyed it as a healthy breakfast topped with Greek yogurt, you could easily top it with whipped cream or ice cream and have a delicious and decadent dessert. It has all the flavor of a delicious baked apple straight out of the oven but the convenience of taking only minutes to make in the microwave. With raisins for added sweetness, walnuts for some crunch, and the warmth of cinnamon, this is a perfect dish for fall--or any time of year!
