Crock Pot Baked Apples

Indulge in buttery baked apples with this lowfat option that’s just sweet enough to satisfy your sweet tooth. And thanks to the apples, you’ll get a full serving of fruit.

This recipe is the perfect marriage of those same delicious fall flavors wrapped up in a fuss-free dessert that is healthy to boot. Apples form the “base” of this dish. Once the apples are cored, the center becomes the perfect vessel for holding a cinnamon-spiced oat crumble. A bit of butter keeps this dish moist and decadent, without getting anywhere close to the amount of butter (or shortening) used in a standard pie.

The trick that makes this recipe so easy is using a slow cooker to cook the apples. It’s a convenient, hands-off approach that lets you just push a button and way away. In about two hours you’ll have perfectly soft apples with a golden brown crumble. These Slow Cooker Baked Apples make for a delicious guilt-free dessert or even a decadent breakfast or brunch item.
