Mini Apple Pie

Tom here,

This recipe has become my new favourite thing ever. Made it for the first time a few days ago and have made it most nights since! It's super easy, super quick, and low calorie, all of my favourite things!


1 Apple
1 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Brown Sugar
1 Biscuit (I used special gluten free and vegan ones, you can use whatever you prefer - I'm thinking ginger biscuits could be epic)


Preheat your oven to 200 degrees Celsius
Peel the top centimetre of your apple (much much simpler to do this before I discovered!)
Cut around the core and discard it
Place the flesh in a mug
Using a spoon, hollow out the apple, throwing away the core and putting the flesh in a mug as you go (make sure to leave enough inside the apple that it holds together still)
Add the sugar and cinnamon to the flesh and mix
Spoon the flesh back into the apple until level
You'll probably have some left over - save this for now
Cover the bottom of your baking dish with water
Place the apple in the centre, and top with your biscuit
Spoon the remaining flesh around the edge - this will cook with the water and make a lovely sauce while keeping the biscuit moist
Cover with tinfoil and bake for 25 minutes
Remove the tin foil to brown the top for another 5-10 minutes as needed
Serve and enjoy!

This recipe works out to around 150 calories, but obviously that depends largely on the biscuit used (and the size of the apple!)

A tiny pinch of ground cloves would add a nice flavour as well.
