Apples in a Bag

I am all about quick, convenient and yummy tasting.  And as a mom with 3 kids and running a business I kind of have to be.  Here is a quick and easy way to have the perfect topping for your ice cream or  something sweet when you are wanting to pick something a little more healthy.  This is so good even your kids will love it!

Apples in a Bag
Recipe type: Dessert, Snack
  • 1 small apple (Golden Delicious or Granny Smith are my favorite)
  • 1 packet of sweetener (Splenda is my favorite), or a spoonful of sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • Small handful of raisins, optional
  1. Peel or don’t peel apple, core and slice or dice. Place in freezer-quality plastic zippered bag along with remaining ingredients. Seal bag and shake well to mix ingredients.
  2. Reopen bag just a touch to vent. Microwave on High for 2 minutes– longer if you use a big apple.
  3. Carefully (it will be HOT and steamy) open bag and pour over plain or cinnamon-sugar pita chips, flour tortilla chips, oatmeal or ice cream.
