Apple Crisp For One is a delicious single-serving dessert! Make it in the microwave OR oven and top it with vanilla ice cream for an extra tasty treat.
I am having a lot of fun in my kitchen making single serving desserts lately, so be prepared to see at least one more. Basically, I have a mad sweet tooth and need some sugar after any savory meal, but I can’t go eating a whole pan of brownies or limit myself to one cookie. Plus, I am a warm fruit lover! Do you remember my recent post about Honey & Cinnamon Grilled Peaches? So good!
With Fall around the corner I am getting a hankering for apples and it just seemed natural to go with an Apple Crisp. So here it is! Simple! Tastes great! My kids wanted to eat all of my dessert. Stinkers! Haha. It’s okay to share this, but it’s perfectly fine to keep it all for yourself. Enjoy!
Apple Crisp For One
- 1 large granny smith apple
- 2 Tbsp brown sugar, divided
- 2 Tbsp quick oats, divided
- 1 1/2 Tbsp all-purpose flour, divided
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon, divided
- 1 tsp lemon juice
- 1 Tbsp butter
- Peel and thinly slice apple. Toss apple slices with 1 Tbsp brown sugar, ½ Tbsp quick oats, ½ Tbsp flour, ⅛ tsp cinnamon and 1 tsp lemon juice. Place in a microwaveable dish (ramekin, bowl, etc.)
- Using a fork, combine the remaining ingredients with butter for the crumb topping. (1 Tbsp brown sugar, 1½ Tbsp quick oats, 1 Tbsp flour, ⅛ tsp cinnamon, and 1 Tbsp of butter.) Sprinkle over apples.
- Microwave for 60 to 90 seconds until apples are tender. Serve plain or with a small scoop of vanilla bean ice cream.
*No Microwave? Bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 30-35 minutes, until apples are tender.
**The microwaved version will NOT be crispy - but is still delicious.

It’s in the oven now because I like the crunchiness of baked. I doubled it because I had 2 apples that needed to be used. I loved the idea of putting some of the topping ingredients into the apples. I’m so excited.
I hope you love it!
This recipe was good! I found that using any type of apples worked well aswell and I made it in the microwave and it worked great! The only problem I found was that they flour you had to mix with the apple didn’t cook intro it very well so I would get rid of that. Apart from that everything was great!
Thanks for your feedback!
This is a great recipe! I have tried other similar ones, and they always came out way too sweet. This is the perfect balance.
Glad to hear it! Thanks for your comment!

I made this with graham crackers instead of quick oats since it’s what i had on hand. I was craving a dessert but didn’t want the calories of a mug cake. It came out great!
What a fun substitution! Thanks for your comment Laura!
I really likes this one. Only, it wasn’t crisp. Maybe I used the wrong kind of oats, is that possible? I added some raisins to the batter. It’s a very good recipe, I only wonder how I could get it more crisp/crunchy?
Unfortunately the microwave doesn’t make it crispy, it’s just called that because it has the ingredients and topping for an apple crisp, but instead of baking it, you can cook it in the microwave. Sorry for the misunderstanding! You could try broiling the top for a couple minutes after you bake it in the microwave, if you want to try and get that crunchy topping.
No need to apologize! I just thought I did something wrong. Maybe I will try to grill it for a few minutes next time. Anyway, I really liked the taste and I’ll definitely make it again!
Do you have to use green apples?
No, you can use whatever apple you have on hand. I just like to use the granny smith ones because the tartness goes well with the sugar and cinnamon.
Great recipe for a fast and relatively healthy dessert, I replaced half a Tbsp of butter with peanut butter for a more nutty taste.Delicious!!
Oh that sounds like tasty addition!
