2 Minute Apple Pie in a Mug

 I love a quick dessert when you just have a craving for something sweet.  This apple pie in a mug is fast, easy and full of that apple pie flavor you love.  You can serve it with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream ... or both! I topped it with some crumbled nilla wafer cookies to give some crunch and the feeling of a "crust".  You can actually forgo the cookies all together and have a crust-less pie dessert.  My daughter squealed with delight when I pulled this out of the microwave and she tasted it.   You can even make this low carb by swapping the powdered sugar for some agave syrup. Either way it's a fun and easy dessert and "Shhhhh" no one needs to know you had apple pie.  It's between you, the mug and the microwave. :)

1 cup chopped (skinned and cored) apple
1/2 tsp all purpose flour
1 tsp butter
1/4 tsp cinnamon powder
1 tsp powdered sugar (or more to taste)
pinch of grated fresh nutmeg
tiny sprinkle of salt
few drops of lemon juice
3-4 nilla wafer cookies coarsely crumbled
scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream for garnish

Skin, core and chop apple. Add all ingredients (except for cookies, or garnishes: whipped cream/ice cream) to microwave safe mug.  Stir well.

Microwave for 2 minutes on high and taste.  If desired microwave for another 30 seconds.  Top with crumbled cookies and whipped cream and/or ice cream. Enjoy.

  1. I love this idea of apple pie in a cup. 2 minutes, that is my kind of dessert. How are you my friend? Sorry that I haven't been by but I have been working on another web site, I will let you know once we get it running, it's been fun but time consuming. Hope all is well. Are you gearing up for Thanksgiving?

  2. I am going to be a winner for my husband with this dessert. He can have his apple pie every night!

  3. I love this idea! Quick and much healthier than a big piece of pie with the crust!

  4. Fantastic,prefect for a sudden craving.

  5. As much as I love this recipe I seriously need to hide it. You have no idea how tempted I am to skip my workout and go to the store and buy apples!!

  6. Wat a unique idea...only you could have thought of this :-) I will try this sometime...Not a fan of Granny Smith apples though!



    Brilliant idea. I have not been near the microwave for desserts since my disastrous chocolate caramel mug cake, but you have given me just the reason to try again. :) Delicious post my friend.

  8. Very neat idea! So simple.. and comforting. I love those wafers to snack on by themselves too.

  9. With just the two of us, simple desserts like this that can be made and eaten is perfect! And no leftovers-more than perfect! Hope you've had a marvelous week!

  10. is it one teaspoon or tablespoon for the butter?

  11. i made this for breakfast, substituted for more healthier options. this was really good and super simple. thanks!

  12. I just tried this recipe. Didn't have nutmeg or Nilla wafers, instead I used coconut biscuits. They turned out GREAT!!!!!! I am sooo bookmarking and pinning this page right now!

    1. So glad you enjoyed the dish! Yes, definitely substitute it to what you have around.... it's always fun to experiment in the kitchen. Thanks again for dropping by my blog. :)
