Slow Cooker Apple Crisp

October 27, 2011

I took several recipes I saw online and modified them to my taste, reducing the overall butter and sugar. The end result was delicious, and I doubt you’ll miss any of the extra sugar or butter at all. Just serve it with low-fat vanilla ice cream because that makes everything better. :)


  • 3 lbs apples, peeled, cored and diced
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch
  • 1 cup all purpose flour 
  • 1 cup quick cook oats (not instant)
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar 
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 6 tablespoons butter, cold, diced


  1. Stir together diced apples, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/3 cup white sugar, 1 tbs. lemon juice, 1 tsp. vanilla and 1 tbs. corn starch.
  2. Pour mixture into the bottom of a slow cooker.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine 1 cup all-purpose flour, 1 cup oats, 1/4 cup white sugar, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, and 6 tbs. cold, diced butter.
  4. Crumble the flour mixture together until the butter is evenly distributed, like coarse sand throughout mixture.
  5. Pour this flour mixture over the top of the apples.
  6. Cover and cook on high for 2 hours or low for 4 hours. Serve with ice cream and enjoy!

*I’ve contemplated pouring a cup of Sprite over the top of the flour mixture to give it an extra edge, but I have not tried it yet. If you’re feeling brave, let me know!

    This makes no sense.. What about all the other ingredients?

      I had to re-read it too, but I see that  when she says “combine flour through butter” she means to include all those ingredients. (rather than re-typing the list of items) I have never seen a recipe written this way, but it makes sense now! Hth!

      I’m sorry that my instructions are unclear. When I say apples through corn starch I mean start with the apples in the ingredient list and add everything up to and including corn starch. Same goes for the flour mixture, start with flour and mix everything through the butter. I will retype it so it is not as confusing. Thanks!
