Crockpot Apple Crisp

I bought some apples this weekend.  And first I was thinking applesauce in the crockpot, but then I realized I didn’t allow for enough time, so then I went to apple crisp in the crockpot.  Only after I had it all ready, did I realize it’s not hard to make apple crisp in the oven.  But this was good and it made the house smell wonderful for 2+ hours while it was cooking.  The flavors were great too. I loved the subtle ginger & lemon flavors.

I did make one modification to the recipe I started with.  After mixing up the topping, I realized it didn’t look crunchy (because I had omitted the nuts) so I mixed in a cup of oatmeal.  And after I had it cooking away, I read the reviews and found many others had done this too!  One review mentioned this would be great for a potluck at work, the whole office could smell it cooking and it could be served warm!

Crockpot Apple Crisp

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 pinch salt
1/2 cup butter, cut into pieces
1 cup oatmeal
1 cup chopped walnuts

1/3 cup white sugar, or to taste
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
6 cups apples – peeled, cored and chopped
2 tablespoons lemon juice

  1. Mix flour, brown sugar, 1/2 cup of white sugar, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt together in a bowl. Combine butter with the flour mixture using fingers or a fork until coarse crumbs form. Stir in walnuts and set aside.
  2. Whisk together 1/3 cup sugar, cornstarch, ginger, and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Place the apples in a slow cooker, stir in the cornstarch mixture; toss with lemon juice. Sprinkle the walnut crumb topping on top. Cover and cook on High for 2 hours or Low for 4 hours, until apples are tender. Partially uncover the slow cooker to allow the topping to harden, about 1 hour.
