Apple Crisp for One Recipe

Wednesday, January 21, 2015
Apple crisp is one of my sons' favorite desserts. He inspired me to make something for him while I am on a diet. Of course, I did have to taste this to make sure it's worthy of a post! He loved this and said "wow" this is great! Of course, that was music to any cooks ears! Apple crisp for one in a mug and done in the microwave,

it's quick and easy.
Matter of fact it took around 3 1/2 to 4 1/2 minutes

from start to finish! What's even more exciting is I had the most views and pins in one hour on this than any other ! thanks!!!

Apple Crisp for One Recipe

Here's all you need to do
1 thinly sliced Macintosh apple they're my favorite! (you can use any baking apple)

2 tablespoons old fashioned oatmeal

2 teaspoons flour

2 teaspoons brown sugar or more if you like this real sweet

2 tablespoons butter


Cooking spray

1 soup mug or deep coffee mug

Whipped cream or vanilla ice cream

This is layered so read the whole recipe before throwing this together:

In a large mug prepare it by using spraying with cooking oil.

Place a layer of apples, sprinkle with cinnamon to taste, 1 tablespoon oatmeal, 1 teaspoon flour, 1 teaspoon brown sugar and 1 tablespoon butter. Add another layer of apples and repeat remaining ingredients of layers, ending with butter. I added 1 teaspoon of water to the top.

Microwave 2 minutes and check apples. If the apples pierce easy with a fork and are softened it's done. If not continue 1 minute at a time. It depends on the thickness. Mine took 3 1/2 minutes total.

Serve warm with whipped cream. or ice cream


  1. I am so using this recipe since I often crave something a little e sweet and would have to throw the rest away if I made a larger recipe. Loving it.

  2. Claudia, this is Larry's favorite dessert. He's diabetic, so I try not to bake too much. I've got some golden delicious apples and I'm going to give this a try tonight. It really isn't too terrible in terms of nutrition either. Thanks.

  3. This looks great, Claudia and I can see why your son loves it. You have good will power, I could never have just a taste. Take care.

  4. Just wanted you to know I made this for Larry last night and his exact words were: "The only thing I don't like is that it's gone." I sneaked a bite and will make again. I'm going to try to lighten up just a bit by using whipped butter. We'll see how it goes. Thanks for a great dessert for one.
