This is the new ‘comfort’ food. Sooooo good and the granola topping makes it even better.
- 2 tbsp. liquid honey
- 2 tbsp. dark brown sugar
- 2 tsp. cinnamon
- 1 tsp. freshly grated nutmeg
- 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
- 4 Granny Smith apples, peeled and coarsely chopped
- 10 fresh figs, stems removed and finely chopped **
- 1 cup granola
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine the honey, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla in a bowl and whisk to combine thoroughly. Add the apples and figs and coat with the mixture.
Grease a 12 x 12 baking dish and pour the mixture in. Sprinkle the granola over the top, cover with foil and bake for 25-30 minutes (until the apples are tender).
Remove the foil and bake another 5-6 minutes. Let stand at least 10 minutes before diving in. You can’t yet….you forgot the vanilla ice cream (or whipped cream) to just add a little more pizzazz!
**Do not use dried figs. They leave an unsatisfactory taste in your mouth.
