Easy recipe for a microwave apple snack

In college, most people might have grown accustomed to the grab and go culinary technique, where meals don’t take more than a few minutes at most. After getting used to eating light, however, going home for a weekend visit can be pretty strange. Suddenly, there’s cabinets of food to replace a  sparse breakfast granola bar, and lots of time – and sugar – to kill the extra time that might have otherwise been spent in classes.

For those who are looking to satisfy a sweet tooth while still keeping healthy, I have my very own tried and true recipe for cinnamon apple slices. Not only can they be microwaved, but they are only about 100 calories a serving.


Microwave Cinnamon Sugar Apple Slices:


  • 2 Apples – Peeled, and sliced
  • 1/2 to 1 tablespoon sugar or sugar substitute
  • 1/4 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons Lemon juice, to prevent browning of apples when cooking


  • Place apple slices in small bowl
  • Sprinkle lemon juice over apple slices, making sure that every slice gets lightly coated
  • Sprinkle sugar and cinnamon evenly over moistened apple slices
  • Toss apple slices to mix
  • Place apple slices evenly on microwave safe plate (it’s okay if they touch)
  • Cook apples in microwave for two to three minutes
  • Place cooked apples in bowl and serve

    This recipe sounds good! And very easy to make. I like your blog. I think it’s a great idea to share easy cooking and recipes. I’m sure it’s a challenge.

  2. I like your blog beat! You have some good visuals, but I would suggest playing around with the color schemes. Maybe try bolder colors that are related to food? I have a food blog as well, and I love reading other people’s food blogs. Gives me better incite. Keep up the good work!
