Warm sundae will beat back chills in Chiberia

If you live in Chicago, it still feels like winter. My son requested a warm dessert for after dinner. He loves apple pie so I created a much healthier version and, even better, he helped make it!

We chopped up two apples, which I didn’t have time to peel, but feel free. He sprinkled on the cinnamon and poured in the water. He even enjoyed setting the microwave timer, watching every minute go by and stopping and starting it. When the apple was soft, we topped the apple mixture with vanilla frozen yogurt and crunchy granola.

He gave it a big thumb’s up!

Warm Apple Pie Sundae

2 servings


  • 2 apples, diced (Use your favorite flavor.)
  • ½ tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 Tbsp. water
  • ½ cup vanilla frozen yogurt
  • ½ cup granola (I used 1 package Jolly Oak Blueberry Crunch Granola.)


In a microwave safe bowl, combine diced apple, cinnamon, and 2 Tbsp. water.

Microwave mixture for about 3-4 minutes. Stop at each minute and stir until apple is soft.

Equally divide warm apple mixture into two serving bowls. For each bowl, add ¼ cup vanilla frozen yogurt and ½ bag of Jolly Oak Blueberry Crunch Granola.
