Baked Apples and Granola

2 large crisp apples (such as Braeburn, Gala or Fuji)
2 TBS. raisins or dried cranberries
2 TBS. packed brown sugar
4 tsp. butter or margarine, softened
4 crunchy granola bars (any flavor), crushed (OR YOU CAN USE HOMEMADE GRANOLA LIKE WE DID) Search for recipe on this blog!
Milk, cream or fruit-flavored yogurt, if desired

Cut apples in half lengthwise. Using spoon, remove and discard cores, making at least a 1-inch indentation in each apple half. In microwavable pie plate, arrange apple halves, cut sides up. If needed, cut thin slice off bottoms to keep halves from tipping. Fill each apple half evenly with raisins and brown sugar; dot with butter. Cover with microwavable plastic wrap, folding back one edge 1/4 inch to vent steam.
Microwave on High 5 to 6 minutes or until apples are tender. Top each with granola. Serve with milk.
