Light and Tangy Mini Baked Apple Pies
2 Tbsp. butter

2 tsp. cornstarch
1/4 cup water
1 cup granola, no fruit
6 mini Mason jars, 4 oz., cleaned
Preheat oven to 350ºF.
In saucepot, add butter and brown sugar and heat until it bubbles, 4-5 minutes. Add diced apples, NAKANO Citrus Seasoned Rice Vinegar, cinnamon and nutmeg. In a small bowl, whisk together the cornstarch and water and add to the apple mixture.
Cook apple mixture until thickened, 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat and spoon into jars. Fill jars up to the bottom lip, reserving room for the granola. Add 2-3 tablespoons of granola to the top of the jars.
Place jars on sheet tray and bake for 4-6 minutes, until granola is golden brown. Serve warm or room temperature.
Seal with lids after it cools to pack in anyone’s lunch!
For a little extra healthy indulgence, serve with vanilla Greek yogurt sweetened with a bit of agave honey.
