Microwave Baked Apple

Microwave Baked AppleThanksgiving is less than a week away! Before you know it, Christmas will be here. My most favorite part of family gatherings during the fall/winter season is PIE. It’s delicious. It’s too easy to eat more than one slice.  This can add a lot of extra calories from fat and starch. So, today, I present to you the microwave baked apple. It tastes just like an apple pie and the best part? It takes 5 minutes to make!

  1. Wash and dry the apple, and then peel, core, and medium dice it.
  2. Place in a small microwave safe bowl. Pour a packet of Splenda over the apples. Sprinkle with cinnamon and add just a little water — it only takes a little!
  3. Cover, leaving a little room for air to escape, and microwave for 1 minute. Be careful when removing from the microwave, it will be hot! Check the softness of the apples and microwave more if needed.
  4. Once cooled a little, add a small spoonful of Cool Whip Lite and a sprinkle of cinnamon if you'd like. Enjoy!

Crustless Pumpkin Pie

pumpkin pie slicePumpkin Pie is a classic holiday menu staple. But traditional pies are loaded with sugar and carbohydrates. This version of Crustless Pumpkin Pie uses Splenda instead of sugar and is made without a crust to reduce carbohydrates. You still get to enjoy the rich custard-like filling without any of the guilt.

Add this crustless pumpkin pie to your Thanksgiving menu this year for a great treat!

First thing you should know is that there are varieties of apples that work better for cooking and others for eating raw. The New England Apple Organization outlines all varieties of apples and how they are best used and stored. For our baked apples, I love using the Granny Smith and Fugi brands.
