Microwave Apples

Sometimes getting all your fruits and vegetables eaten is a challenge and sometimes it’s easy and delicious. Take the recipe for microwave apples, for example.

Microwave Apples

  • One apple (1 point)
  • 2 teaspoons of cinnamon (0 points)
  • 1 packet of Splenda, Stevia, or Sweet N Low (if desired)

Total: 1 point

With a apple slicer, cut up an apple into bite-sized pieces. Sprinkle the apple pieces with cinnamon and sweetener (if desired). Cook in the microwave on high for two to three minutes.

Your house will smell like freshly baked apple pie and you will think you just ate some fresh apple pie as well. I used to make this on my break at work and all the engineers would come out of their offices to see where the yummy apple dessert was.

My favorite apples to do this with are Honeycrisp. I don’t care for Red Delicious, but I’m sure they would work with this as well. I’ve done this with Granny Smith, but they are so sour, not even a packet of Stevia can make them taste like apple pie.

Try this recipe out and tell me what you think.

    Sounds great! I can’t wait to try it out! I’m sure my kids will LOVE it too. I have a terrible time getting them to eat all of their fruits and veggies too (especially the green veggies).

    It’s free on core plan – to make it a really decadent dessert – team it with some 0% Greek yoghurt…yummy!

    Thanks Laura! D.
