1 small apple
1 packet of sugar or sweetener
1⁄4 teaspoon of cinnamon
1⁄4 teaspoon of cornstarch (honey is an easy substitute)
1 tablespoon of water

You can either peel your apple or leave it unpeeled; core and slice. Place inside a microwave-safe zippered bag along with the other ingredients and shake well. (Optional: use microwave safe bowl, mix ingredients, cover with plate) Reopen a corner of the bag to vent. Microwave on High for 2 minutes.
Carefully open the bag and pour over oatmeal or ice cream, or top it with raisins or granola and enjoy!
