Slow Cooker Apple Crisp
Thank you Pazazz for sponsoring this post. As always all thoughts and opinions remain my own. Thank you to my readers for supporting the brands who support 614 Mom.
This time of year my home is filled with the smell of freshly baked cookies, muffins, and pinterest fails (I’m looking at you peppermint ornaments) but nothing makes a cold day a little warmer than my favorite apple crisp in the slow cooker. It’s my favorite thing to throw together before a potluck, holiday event with our families, or a random Tuesday evening when we just need some comfort food.
We LOVE apples in this house, it’s actually one of the only fruits that every single member of my family likes so we always have a bunch on hand which makes it easier to throw this together in minutes. I’m really picky about the quality of my produce so I’ve recently been trying out some new brands and Pazazz is my new favorite orrrrr obsession is actually the better word! Pazazz apples are descended from the Honeycrisp with a beautiful red color and delicious mix of sweet and tart. They are available in the fall and winter so it’s such a treat when they come in season. You can find Pazazz Apples in Meijer and Kroger and just to save you some time you can get them delivered from Shipt through Meijer. Just a little FYI! :) I’m all about helping make your lives easier - just search Pazazz and they pop right up.
This recipe is so easy to make with my kids because I use the slow cooker so we can put together the entire recipe before turning up the heat and while I love cooking with my kids - the dangers of cooking with children can stress me out! Anyone else feel me.
I highly encourage gathering up all of your ingredients beforehand and even peeling the apples before passing them along to your kids to chop.
10 Pazazz Apples
1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice
⅓ cup brown sugar
3 teaspoons of cinnamon
Pinch of salt
1 cup of uncooked oats (old fashioned)
⅔ cup chopped walnuts (you could also use almonds instead)
½ cup flour
½ cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
4 tablespoon coconut oil (I’ve also used butter but I like the coconut oil better)
Peel, core and chop the apples into thin slices. I allow my kids to use their safety knife to cut the apples so for us the apples are all different sizes.
Add lemon juice to apples and mix brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt until the apples are covered completely
Using a separate bowl make the crumble topping - by gently mixing the oats, flour, walnuts, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt together.
Add the base to the slow cooker and then top with oat crumble.
Drizzle coconut oil on top and add lid and set to high heat for 3-4 hours.
This pairs perfectly with a bowl of vanilla ice cream or by itself. If you give it a try be sure to tell me how it turns out for you. You can head to my Facebook page to watch my son and I make this recipe LIVE!
