Crock Pot Apple Crisp

This recipe went over so well! My hubby and I had dinner with friends and I made this for dessert. And it’s super easy – throw it in the crock pot for a few hours and it cooks itself! Not to mention it makes the house smell amazing!


  • 3 large Fuji apples {or your favorite kind, add more apples if your crock pot is large}, cut in pieces and peeled
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 ┬átsp ginger


The apples need to be prepped before they go in the crock pot, so let’s start by chopping them up. I chose not to peel the skin off and instead of chunks, I sliced mine. {I also have 6 apples because I made a double batch for later.}


In a bowl, mix the dry ingredients and then toss the apples in the dry mixture.


Layer the apple mixture on the bottom of the crock pot. Feel free to fill up the crock pot almost to the top because the apples will cook down.


For the topping:

  • 2/3 cup quick cooking oats
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 4 Tbsp softened butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Mix everything in a bowl until it’s a bit clumpy.


Spread this mixture on top of the apples and then cover with the lid to the crock pot.


Cook on high for 4-5 hours or on low for 6-7 hours. {With my crock pot, I can keep dessert on warm while we eat dinner!}


Looks delicious, right? It tasted better than it looks!
