This is a great, quick, and easy apple crisp with no cleanup. The apples are soft with a little crispness and mix great with the crumble topping. You can serve this to any of your family and friends!

  • Grease a mug; flatten 1/2 the crumble mixture into the bottom to form a crust.

  • Microwave crust for 30 seconds on high.

  • Remove mug from microwave; add 1 dash cinnamon, apple slices, and brown sugar. Add water. Mix apples, brown sugar, and cinnamon together carefully without disturbing crust. Pour remaining crumble mixture on top.

  • Microwave for 1 minute and 50 seconds on 60% power. Remove from microwave; let cool about 1 minute.

Cook's Note:

If you like a tart apple crisp, then you can use less sugar. The amount you take out is up to you based on how sweet you like it. You may want to give the original recipe a try before messing with how much sugar you put in.

I made the recipe as written but only 3/4 of the recipe. I put it in a flat bottomed bowl for ease of eating. I topped it with vanilla yogurt. It was delicious! Read More

I made this as written with the exception of the water I totally forgot it and I don't think that it's needed. It's a nice quick treat when you just want a little something sweet. Thanks for sharing your recipe. Read More

This was so amazing! Instead of using sliced apples I used plain apple sauce and left the water out as well as adding fresh sliced strawberries to it. Completely divine and perfect for after getting wisdom teeth out. Thanks for sharing! Read More

I forgot to buy cinnamon! But I had already peeled my apple before I realized lol. I used a packet (the microwave stuff) of cinnamon and spice oatmeal- initially, I was going to use plain oatmeal, but I felt I needed the cinnamon somehow. Anyway, it came out great! I made it again, but didn’t feel like going back out to get cinnamon, so I threw some honey packets in the apple mix to give it a little something something- that was better. It did require more microwave time, which may have had something to do with the oats I used; it could also have had something to do with the fact that I was eyeballing my measurements due to not having proper measuring spoons in my hotel room. I gave it 4 stars because it tastes like it needs a little squeeze of lemon and some vanilla extract. It does make sense that if you’re making it in mugs you probably don’t want to do all that, but idk tastes like it’s missing something other than cinnamon. I do like it and I would make it again - maybe I just need to drop a scoop of ice cream on it next time :) Read More

I was looking for an easy dessert recipe to use up some of the extra apples we have. I had to try this one when I saw we had all the ingredients on hand with the exception of butter so we used margarine instead. I also forgot to add the water but I think it did fine without it! We will be making this again but we will probably add a scoop of ice cream or a dollop of whip cream next time. Read More

A great breakfast I made with fresh Honey Crisp apples! Of course I had to make 2 since it called for 1/2 an apple. Read More

Don't know what I did wrong...probably a lot. I only had a Fuji apple so maybe it was not juicy enough? The crisp part never got crumbly in the first place and didn't change after the initial cooking. Then the apple slices were hard after the first cooking. So I added 1 t more of water and nuked again. Still no good. Then I added 1 t more water and covered to steam the apples a bit. The end result was undercooked apples and "crisp" so gummy I couldn't eat it. Oh well nothing ventured nothing gained! Read More
