Easy and Delicious Apple Crisp, a slow cooker recipe.s
Apple Crisp, from your slow cooker.
It is rainy here, very rainy in fact. The leaves are falling off the cherry tree in the backyard and the Japanese Maple is turning scarlet. The scene is ideal, except for the rain. Only one thing to do, make something with the apples sitting on the counter.

They are not large apples, but there is enough once peeled and sliced to make this wonderful dessert. I made a crisp like this years ago but lost track of the recipe. And when I went back to find the blog I got it from, I could not find that either. But the taste, well that I did not forget. There is an unusual ingredient that makes all the difference, peanut butter. Oh yes, it is peanut butter, so please don't leave it out.....

Apple Crisp, a slow cooker recipe
adapted from:  modern mommy hood

6-8 apples depending on size peeled and sliced thin
1/3 - 1/2 c sugar - depending on the sweetness of your apples
1 T cornstarch
1/2 t cinnamon
1 T apple cider vinegar
2 T water

Combine well, turn into a greased 6-qt slow cooker. Set on high.

1 c old fashion oats*
1 c flour 
1/2 c sugar
1/4 c brown sugar
1 t cinnamon
1/4 t nutmeg
1/2 c butter
2 T peanut butter OR almond butter

Pulse the oats in a food processor to mince up, add remaining ingredients and pulse until completely mixed together.

Spoon evenly over the top of the apples.

Cover and cook on high 2 hours. Remove cover and cook another hour to crisp the topping. Serve with vanilla Greek yogurt, vanilla ice cream or of course whipped cream.

Serves 8-10

* if you prefer you may use quick oats and simply pulse all ingredients until combined.


The final clean up, always the last step in cooking!

  1. Oh I'm going to have to try the peanut butter (well, fake peanut butter for me) trick. I make apple crisp a lot but never in the slow cooker and never with nut butter. Now I'm curious. It sure looks good.

  2. My husband loves fall because I will make him apple crisp.

  3. Apple Crisp is one of the pleasures of fall. I love that this recipe used the crock pot and also the surprise addition of the peanut butter. Thank you for another delicious recipe.
