Microwave Baked Apples - 'nother "no sugar" dessert:)


love 'em so much, its unbeliebable! ...yes, i just spelled that wrong on purpose:)

Microwavable Baked Apples Recipe
*One apple cored. (peeled if you like, but i think the peel adds an extra kick of flavor!).
*Pumpkin Pie Spice

Put apple in a microwavable bowl, pour honey on top, about a teaspoon or so. Sprinkle two pinches of Pumpkin pie spice, and a dash of cinnamon on the apple.
Cover with a microwave safe plate (this, together with the bowl, will act as a steamer). Microwave on high for 5 minutes. Remove plate with potholders-IT WILL BE HOT! Let apple sit for 5 mins. then EAT!

**I like to smash it all up with a knife and fork before eating, but you can eat it any way you like!**

Let me know how it turns out for you!
