Single Serve Apple Crisp in the Microwave

  • Total Time: 8 minutes
  • Yield: 1 Single Serve Apple Crisp 1x


The only thing better than a single serve dessert is one that doesn’t require an oven or a stove. This single serving microwave apple crisp is perfect for a quick fall dessert when you’re short on time. It’s also perfect for small apartments and dorm rooms!



Apple filling

  • 1 medium apple, peeled & chopped up
  • 2 tsp maple syrup (or brown sugar)
  • Large pinch of cinnamon
  • Optional but highly recommended : 1 tsp cornstarch + 1 tsp water

Crumble Topping

  • 2 tbsp oats
  • 1/2 tsp butter, melted or softened
  • 2 tsp brown sugar (or maple syrup)
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch of salt (you can def skip this)


  1. Mix up all the ingredients under the “apple filling” in a bowl. If you don’t have cornstarch you can skip it, but I personally like to add it in anytime I make this. I add in 1 tsp cornstarch with 1 tsp water and mix it into the apples to create that sticky apple pie filling texture. Microwave for 30 seconds, use a spoon to mix up and microwave again for 30 seconds. Mix and repeat 2-3 times or until the apples are softened.
  2. While the apples are microwaving, mix up all the ingredients under “Crumble topping” in a bowl. Then, sprinkle it all over the top of the microwaved apple filling. Microwave for 1 minute and let is sit for at least 1 minute at room temperate before digging in!
