Quick Microwave Fruit Crisp

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by crazy crafter

Very simple if you are in the mood for cobbler or apple crisp- you just take whatever canned fruit you have and top it with kashi go lean crunch or instant oatmeal - looks like you've spent hours on it :)

A really quick and easy recipe that makes everyone think you slaved all day in the kitchen. Easy to add and change up. I used canned apricots and in light syrup and added dried cherries and used 1/2 the white sugar. The instant oatmeal topping was prepared and broiled, but I used Apple cinnamon, cinnamon and maple brown sugar 'cause that was all that I had. The family was pleasantly surprised.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix all ingredients except for instant oatmeal or kashi go lean crunch cereal into a 9x9 microwave safe glass casserole dish and microwave for 15 minutes stirring every 5 minutes.
  2. Take out of microwave after 15 minutes and let stand for a few moments until slightly cooled and beginning to thicken, then top with your choice of kashi go lean crunch cereal or instant oatmeal.
  3. (just a note - if you choose the oatmeal you may wish to brown it in the oven on broil for a few moments so that it doesn't get instantly soggy - to do this, mix it with some butter and pour onto top of fruit mixture,then put into oven on middle rack and check on regularly until it crisps up nice and golden brown.
  4. The Kashi is nice if you wish to serve it right away (kashi doesn't re-microwave very nicely so only use if you are eating that same night or re-heat in the oven the next day for a hot dish).
  5. Add cream or milk and enjoy!
