An easy midnight snack

If you’re anything like me, watching the Food Network late at night can be dangerous. Luckily, to satisfy after-dinner cravings, I found a one-serving apple crisp recipe that can be made in less than five minutes.

The flax seed meal in this recipe provides a source of Omega-3 fatty acids.

Microwave Apple Crisp for One

1 or 2 apples (depending on size), peeled and sliced

3 Tbsp. rolled oats (not instant)

1 Tbsp. brown sugar

1 Tbsp. whole wheat flour

1 tsp. flax seed meal (optional)

1/8 tsp. cinnamon

1 Tbsp. melted butter

Instructions: Slice your apples really thin so they are easily cooked in the microwave. Spread them evenly in the bottom of a small bowl. Combine dry ingredients and stir in melted butter. Sprinkle topping over fruit.

Microwave on high for 2 1/2 minutes or until apples are tender.

If you want to make a vegan version of this recipe, use 1 ½ – 2 Tbsp. of melted Earth Balance spread instead of the 1 Tbsp. of melted butter.

Bon appétit!
