OK so I’m no Chuck Hughes but I’m still a pretty good cook according to my family and friends and I have come up with a couple of creative recipes using the In Snax and In Cuisin products that everyone’s loved. I thought this particular recipe would be perfect for this time of the year when apples are in season and kids are back in school. It makes a perfect  and very quick sweet snack for after school but it is also very healthy since it is made with apples. So without further ado, here’s my recipe for pie in an apple! :)


  • 1 apple
  • 1/4 tsp brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp of cinnamon
  • 2 tbs of water
  • A squeeze of lemon
  • 1/4 cup of blended In Snax cinnamon pita crisps (place a handful of crisps into blender or magic bullet and blend)


  1. Slice the apple down the middle from stalk to bottom. Remove the core.
  2. Remove the apple’s flesh but try to keep the skin intact. Chop the flesh into small pieces, adding a squeeze of lemon (so the apple doesn’t turn brown) the brown sugar and the cinnamon. Mix well.
  3. Add a little water and fill the apple halves with the mix. Top with the blended cinnamon crisps and place in the microwave for 1 1/2 minutes.

You have a wonderful, warm, sweet snack in minutes! And if you feel like being a bit more decadent, you can always add a bit of butter to the mix ;)

En français


  • 1 pomme
  • 1/4 p. cuillère de sucre brun
  • 1/4 p. cuillère de cannelle
  • 2 g. cuillères d’eau
  • Un peu de jus de citron
  • 1/4 tasse de croustilles In Snax à la cannelle moulues (mettez une poignée de croustilles dans un blender pour obtenir une poudre plus ou moins lisse)


  1. Coupez la pomme en deux et enlevez les pépins.
  2. Enlevez la chair de la pomme en prenant soin de ne pas percer la peau. Coupez la chair en petits morceaux et ajoutez-y un peu de jus de citron pour éviter que la chair brunisse. Mélangez avec le sucre et la cannelle.
  3. Remettez le mélange dans la moitié de pomme et saupoudrez des croustilles In Snax écrasées. Placez au micro-ondes pour cuire pendant 1 minute et demi. Savourez!
