All of the sweet and tasty goodness of a traditional apple crisp, stuffed and baked inside a fresh Autumn apple. Serve it alongside some vanilla Greek yogurt for an extra filling fall dessert, for one!

This single serving recipe is so easy to make, plus it’s gluten free, and vegan!


If you’re new to my blog, you will notice that the majority of my recipes are single serving – for one person. I’ve always struggled with portion control… If I made a recipe that serves 4, I know I’d end up eating the whole thing… so that’s why I started making all of my meals only 1 serving. That way there’s no leftovers for me to eat, and no question as to how much of the meal is an appropriate portion. I always had a hard time with diet/nutrition books that would give recipes for 4-6 servings. I know I could measure out the appropriate servings and store them in their own tupperware, but if there are leftovers or extra in the fridge, I know I will end up eating them when I shouldn’t! Maybe that’s just me, but I’ve found that single serving recipes work best for me to stay on track! Single serving recipes are also great for someone who lives alone, but they’re easy to double if you’re cooking for another person as well!

    I am the same, that’s why I can’t do a meal prep for the week — I’ll eat a several days’ worth at once… Thanks for posting this, it gave me a needed reminder that it’s good for some people (me!!!) to take a little more time daily and make food for that meal/day only.
    We just have to listen to our own bodies!

    I love single serving recipes. My husband and I eat a little differently so we do it all of the time for the both of us. This stuffed apple sounds delicious! YUM!
