Apple pie fanatics… this is for you! With the same scrumptious aroma and flavors of freshly-baked apple pie filling, this simple rendition has even more a-peel-ing qualities you’re going to love: it’s made in the microwave, has a fraction of the sugar, carbs, and saturated fat, and takes less than 5 minutes to whip up. Its ease and indulgence make it the quintessential treat for those spontaneous dessert cravings, and it delivers the same sweet seasonal satisfaction as its sugary and labor-intensive counterpart (aka apple pie)—only it’s good to the core!

  • Prep time
  • Total Time
This recipe makes 2 servings
  • • 1 apple finely diced, skin on
  • • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • • 1 tablespoon firmly packed brown sugar
  • • 2 tablespoons water
  • • 2 teaspoons corn starch or arrowroot flour
  • • 4 cinnamon graham cracker squares (2 full sheets) 

Finely chop apple (skin on) and add to a bowl with cinnamon and brown sugar.

In a small bowl make a slurry by dissolving corn starch into water. Add slurry to the bowl with chopped apples and mix until everything is well combined.

Microwave for one minute, then remove bowl from microwave and mix well.  Microwave for another minute. The mixture should now be thick and gooey. Add crumbled graham cracker squares, mix throughout, and divide between two ramekins. Garnish with an optional squirt of whipped topping and dash of cinnamon or apple pie spice on top.
