Slow Cooker Apple Crisp


It seems like every few posts, I’m complaining about the weather.  Well, today we’ll hit 89°F here in Philadelphia.  My poor dog is laying on the tile kitchen floor with the fan blasting in his face.

When it gets this hot, I seldom want to bake, since heating up the house is probably the last thing I want.  But what happens when I really want dessert?  I turn to my slow cooker, of course!

I really love slow cookers as alternatives to baking because it does a wonderful job of creating a crispy texture (for certain recipes) and it does it without heating up the house!

Today, I’m sharing my apple crisp recipe for the slow cooker.  My house currently smells like cinnamon and apples, my favorite!



Slow Cooker Apple Crisp

  • Servings: 6-8
  • Print


  • 6 apples
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup melted butter


  1. Peel, core, and slice apples into thin slices.  Place in a slow cooker along with granulated sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg.  Toss gently to coat apples with spices and sugar.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine flour, oats, brown sugar and melted butter until it resembles coarse crumbs.  Spread evenly over sliced apples.
  3. Place lid on the slow cooker and set the cooking temperature to LOW for 3-4 hours, and then remove the lid and cook for an additional hour, or until apples are soft and crumbles are crispy.

So tell me ...
