Healthy apple pie dessert

One day while watching The Biggest Loser, Jillian Michaels shared a yummy healthy recipe.

Now, normally I don't make (much less even remember to make) recipes I've seen on TV, but this one looked so easy and yummy.


Cinnamon Apples:

Start with an Apple. (I LOVE Gala ones).


Slice said apple.


If you don't have an apple slicer/corer, go buy one. They are so worth the money.

Throw the core away, put the apple in a bowl, and add some water (about 1/4 Cup or so).


Next step not pictured: put the bowl of apple slices in the microwave, COVER, and cook for 2 minutes. Now carefully pour all the water out. You can leave the apple in the bowl or put it on a plate.

Once you've drained the water, sprinkle cinnamon all over the apple. NOTE: Use straight cinnamon. You do not need a cinnamon/sugar mixture for this.



Now enjoy eating them (careful, they are H-O-T).


They taste like apple pie without the crust.

They are so delish. Even my kids like them.

Have a healthy week!


  1. oooH now I can make something for the kids that I can eat and they can enjoy!!! Thanks for sharing!

  2. okay Allison those look great! I'll be running out for apples now!

  3. we would do a whole baked apple for bruised apples we couldn't serve on the line (when i was working at school lunch program). i do the same at home. sometimes i mass them up for apple sauce.super easiest treat! they really do taste like apple pie without the crust :P

  4. Fabulous! Will definitely be trying these! Thanks!

  5. Oh, this looks yummy! Will definitely be trying this one - thanks!

  6. So yummy! I think they taste just as good as an apple pie.

  7. Little tip for any reader: put the cinnamon BEFORE putting the apple into the microwave, because then, with the juice the apple gives, it will give you a kind of cinnamon syrup that's to die for!

  8. Delicious!! Just made this... so good

  9. I added the cinnamon before and it was great idea. A tad of cool whip was a great way to add that extra "something" :)

  10. Thanks for the yummy recipe!

  11. awesome idea!! I'm going to share on my blog and link back to your page if that's ok!
