Happy Fall: Apple Pie in a Bag

I've been trying to post a workout for you on Wednesdays but today I have a simple snack recipe that is going to knock your socks off.  If you thought the banana ice cream was good just wait until you try this!  The workout can wait!

I've seen versions of this recipe a few different places but once I had the general idea I kinda threw everything together, added a few things of my own and voila- apple pie in a bag!

Here is what you need:

1 sliced apple - peeled, unpeeled whatever you want.  (I just cored mine and left it with the peel on.)
1/4 cup granola (optional)
1/2 tsp maple/cinnamon spice
1/4 tsp cornstarch
1 packet sweetener (optional)
A few raisins (optional)
1 ziploc bag (Just make sure it's microwavable)

Here is how you make it:
Ok, listen up.  This is really tricky.  Are you ready?

Step 1: Throw everything in the bag
Step 2: Shake
Step 3: Nuke it for 2 minutes.  **Leave the bag open just a little to vent

That's it!  Easy as 1, 2, 3!  I may have put a little sugar free maple syrup on it too.  Shhhhh.

Seriously, you've got to try this.  My kids even loved it!

I used Bear Naked Original Peak Protein granola in "original".  I'd never used any of the Bear Naked products before because they are, in my opinion, a little expensive but this was the only granola I could find with under 10grams of sugar!  Plus it has 6 grams of protein in each serving and it's tasty!

If you're feeling really fancy you could pair this with a little vanilla ice cream.  I probably would have done that but I can't keep ice cream in the house.  Warlords take it every time.  (If you get that joke we should be friends)

Your turn: What's your favorite fall treat?
