I’ve never been a gal who has been satisfied with an apple for a snack in the afternoon — my sweet tooth can get the best of me if I’m not careful.
With all of the yummy pumpkin breads, scones, and other goodies EVERYWHERE I turned today, I really needed a little treat with my afternoon tea.
And, I didn’t get the Meatless Monday recipe up early today — so it was a perfect day to share this delicious & semi-healthy little treat with you. Ok, maybe healthy is pushing it. But there’s an apple in it, ok?!! 🙂
Today’s Meatless Monday Recipe is an Easy Microwave Apple Crisp for One. It was inspired by a similar recipe from Sophie at My Happy Place (thanks, Sophie!)
Prep time: 10 minutes (and I was taking photos while I was prepping, so if you are quick it is probably even less than that).
Microwave time: 1 1/2 minutes
Here’s what you need:
1. Peel and thinly slice your apple and place in a bowl.
2. Add 1 tablespoon of the brown sugar, half a tablespoon of your flour, 1/8 teaspoon of your cinnamon, and a dash of nutmeg
Did you know that there are over 1,000 apple varieties to choose from? Check out this article that I wrote for Clean Eating magazine to learn which kind of apples work best in all of your favorite recipes.
