This super-simple, apple crisp mixes together in minutes with minimal ingredients and cooks quickly right in the microwave. And the best part is it's a single-serving dessert, so no

How to Make Cinnamon Apple Crisp Microwave Mug
Step 1: Gather and prepare all ingredients.
Step 2: In a small bowl , combine the topping ingredients: 1-½ teaspoons canola oil, flour, 2-½ teaspoons Truvia Brown Sugar Blend , ¼ teaspoon cinnamon and pinch of salt. Mix with a fork until thoroughly combined and crumbly.
Step 3: In a mug (or microwave-safe bowl), combine the apple, 1 teaspoon Truvia Baking Blend , pinch of cinnamon and 1 teaspoon canola oil and mix well to coat the apple.
Step 4: Microwave the apple mixture for 5 minutes on HIGH, or until the apple is tender. Remove from microwave and stir.
Step 5: Sprinkle the crumb topping mixture evenly over the warm apple mixture. Microwave on HIGH for 1-½ minutes, or just until the topping is set.
Step 6: Remove from microwave and let crisp stand at room temperature for at least 15 minutes, alternatively refrigerate for 5 to 10 minutes, before serving.
Step 7: Enjoy plain or with your favorite topping—lite whipped topping, Greek yogurt, non-fat frozen yogurt or lite ice cream would all be delicious.
I was able to reduce this recipe by 3 SmartPoints by substituting canola oil for butter (also making this dessert dairy-free), reducing the total amount used and reducing the amount of flour used in the topping.
The original recipe was a little too sweet for me with too much crumble topping. After making less topping and substituting Truvia for the white and brown sugars, I thought the sweetness level was much better and the apple mixture was better balanced with the topping and didn't get overwhelmed.
Try making Cranberry Apple Crisp by mixing in some chopped dried cranberries with the apples before cooking.
Enjoy this delicious dessert plain, or with your favorite topping. Some popular choices include:
- Lite whipped topping
- Plain (or vanilla) Greek yogurt
- Non-fat frozen yogurt or lite ice cream
