Microwave Apple Almond Dessert

User Rating 4.5 Star Rating (4 Reviews)


Updated August 26, 2007

For me, baked apple is a comfort food. Regular recipes are full of sugar and raisins. This is sort of a cross between baked apple and an individual apple crisp, but it's done in the microwave, so it isn't crispy. Sometimes I top it with yogurt, or mascarpone cheese mixed with the flavored sugar-free syrup. This snack/dessert isn't super low-carb, so you wouldn't want to use it for a very low carb diet phase.


  • About 2/3 cup chopped apple (70 grams)
  • Sugar-free syrup, such as Da Vinci's caramel, or water and sugar substitute
  • About half a teaspoon of cinnamon
  • About 3 Tablespoons almond meal
  • About a teaspoon of butter
  • Chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)


Note that the measurements above are approximate, although the Nutritional Information is based upon it.

Put the chopped apple in a microwave-safe bowl or other container. Sprinkle the cinnamon over it, and pour the sugar-free syrup over the top to about half an inch. Cover. Microwave about 1½ minutes.

Remove the cover. Sprinkle the almond meal over the top, and just a sprinkling of salt. You can add chopped walnuts or pecans if you like. Dot with butter. Microwave, uncovered for another 1½ minutes.

Nutritional Information: Each serving has 9 grams effective carbohydrate plus 4 grams fiber, 4 grams protein, and 169 calories.

Superb!, Guest Melanie Webb

I made this exactly, but without the nut's. The Almond flour gives it a nutty texture and flavor too. I added a little whipped topping. Deeeeee lish!
