When the weather gets colder and you want something comforting to warm you up without breaking the bank, this super simple baked apple hits the spot. Who has time to go grocery shopping anyways? Just swipe these ingredients from the dining hall, use your floor’s microwave, and you are good to go.

All you need is a microwave safe container and an apple corer ($3 from your local homewares store) to create this vegan, gluten free snack. If you have them, ground nutmeg and ginger make nice additions, too.
