Apple Crisp for One

Apple Crisp for One

Introduction

I am a single person and would love to have dessert sometimes but it's hard to find something that you can make for just one person and only once. Helps to not overeat that way too or have food go bad! So here is a recipe that I've tweaked for one person. Feel free to tweak it to suit your needs and tastes! I am a single person and would love to have dessert sometimes but it's hard to find something that you can make for just one person and only once. Helps to not overeat that way too or have food go bad! So here is a recipe that I've tweaked for one person. Feel free to tweak it to suit your needs and tastes!
Number of Servings: 2

Ingredients

    1 medium apple, sliced and cubed (I left the skin on but you can remove; the original recipe called for 2 small apples)
    a sprinkle of sugar, salt and cinnamon (I used only a pinch of sugar and an applie pie spice blend I have from Epicurious)
    2 tbsp flour
    2 tbsp brown sugar (I used Splenda and calculated splenda here)
    2 tbsp quick oats (The original recipe calls for 1 tbsp but I love oats!)
    2 tbsp cold butter or margarine

Directions

Makes 1 serving.

1. Put cut up apple into a ramekin and sprinkle with sugar, salt and cinnamon.

2. Combine flour, sugar and oats. use your fingers to rub butter into dry ingredients; continue until the mixture appears crumbly.
Spring flour mixture on top of apples and bake at 375F for 30-35 minutes, until topping is lightly browned.

3. Serve as is or with cream or vanilla yogourt.

Note 1: I used my toaster oven and baked for 30 minutes at 350F.

Note 2: The original recipe can be found on page 170 of "Straight A's College Cookbook - Quick Cooking for 1 or 2" by Karen Wokes. (ISBN 1-894022-94-7

Note 3: Next time I may want to add other fruits or dried fruit like craisins or add a sprinkle of nuts.

    428 Calories, 24 g Fat, 61 g of Cholesterol, & 49 g Carbohydrates!!!!! This is NOT LOW CALORIE, and I question just how healthy!!!! Drop the topping, use the apple spice seasoning as long as no sugar is involved and heat it until apple cooks, add a couple Tablespoons of Low Fat Vanilla Yogurt! - 2/5/13

    If you're prone to sweets eating binges then baking only a single serving makes sense. If I try this I will add ground flaxseed or chia seeds and substitute coconut oil and a gluten-free flour. A tiny dollop of miso or tahini could complement the sweetness. - 2/5/13

  • This looks very tasty. I was confused by the serving sizes, though. The info at the top says it serves 2, and yet by the directions it says makes 1 serving. - 3/25/13

  • I notice that this makes 2 serves so the calorie count may be right.
    Did spellcheck mess up? "Spring flour mixture on top of apples" ? Maybe spoon flour mixture is meant here?
    I would have this with a low cal meal when I need a treat. - 2/9/13

  • this definitely needs to be tweeked. light butter, 1 tbsp should be fine. 1 tbsp flour, 1tbsp oats. Maybe even less. I will play with it and see. Definitely need to drop the calorie count. After all, this is a single serving. The premise is a good one though. - 2/6/13
