Two Quick Healthy Desserts

It was Sunday afternoon and I was in the mood for something sweet which was not too sugary.  I searched several websites and came up with these two easy to make deserts.  They don't involve any cooking skills but still taste great.

Microwave "Baked" Apple Slices

1. Remove or cut around the core of the apple. 
2. Slice and arrange the pieces on a microwave safe dish.
3. Add butter or margarine.
4. Sprinkle with cinnamon and whatever else you'd like.
5. Cover with plastic wrap and cook for about 4 minutes.
Be careful, it will be very hot.

Banana and Strawberry Slices

1. Just slice them and eat them together.

But my banana was still green so I tried to ripen it by putting it in a toaster oven and baking it at the lowest setting for about an hour.  I got that idea from searching the web.  

The banana started to get black on one side so I stopped heating it after about 30 minutes!

But inside it was still okay.
2. Sprinkle a small amount of sugar on top if it's too tart.


  1. They both look so good. I will have to pick up some apples on my next visit to the store I use Splenda instead of sugar so I want to see how they turn out.

    1. I ques if the heat doesn't affect it, it should work.

    2. Actually for cooking I use Stevia which takes better to heat. My son is diabetic so I adapt a lot of recipes.

  2. I would just chop it all up and make a fruit salad. That's even easier!
    Stay healthy!
