Welcome, today I’m really excited because we’re doing a fall recipe and the name is “Crockpot Apple Crisp Recipe” because fall is here, weather-wise and actually based on the calendar but also we’re doing a dessert and this is the second dessert that I’ve done in the crockpot here on my website.
I’m really excited to share it with all of you, now I know in the fall people get really amped up about pumpkin spice.
And I want to be clear it’s not that I don’t like pumpkin spice I really do, and if I’m being really honest anytime I hear pumpkin spice I feel like posh spices, posh and sporty spice so sporty and pumpkin spice just loved the harvest.

So we’re doing Crockpot Apple Crisp Recipe, just a quick note the whole reason I started doing this was that I always felt very overwhelmed by any Crockpot Apple Crisp Recipe, that I looked at.
That wasn’t one of my main staples or go twos that I always did, and so I would read through and there’d be too many ingredients or too many steps.
And legitimately, I would be in the ground in a pool of my own tears because I just felt like it was too much so I wanted to do this Crockpot Apple Crisp Recipe for people like me that really wanted to cook but just sometimes didn’t know where to start.
So I share that because you may read this Crockpot Apple Crisp Recipe, and feel like you also are going to be in a pool of your own tears but don’t do that I’m gonna break this down and it’s going to be super simple.

The easy and simple way is, just make sure you add enough melted butter to coat everything, butter brings everything together.

Before I show you putting all the food in the crockpot, I just wanted to go through what I’ve broken down into three steps that are like the prep steps before the food goes in.
Step one is going to be peeling your apples and then cutting them up.
Step two is going to be putting them in, make sure that they get coated in cinnamon sugar and two or three other items, so super easy to get them all coated.
Step three is then in a separate bowl mixing up the topping that goes over the top of the apples, rolled oats, butter, flour, and a couple of other items as well. And you’re gonna put the apples in the crockpot and then put the oat mixture in there, and mix it up to put a few oats on top and that’s it.
I’m going to show you guys, how to put all things together in the crockpot and then I’ll share a few important tips which I learned along the way when I made this and I think are really helpful tips. So I’ll share those tips with all of you.
So really if you feel like your heads gonna explode after you read the recipe please don’t let that happen, because I have mentioned everything step-by-step. So just relax and make this amazing and easy Crockpot Apple Crisp Recipe.
So let’s get further and start our Crockpot Apple Crisp Recipe,
In a bowl, combine 1 cup of oats, 3/4 cup flour, 1/4 a cup of brown sugar, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon powder, 1/4 teaspoon of salt, and 1 stick or 1/2 a cup of cut-up cold butter. Mix all together until the butter is fully coated set this mixture offside.
And then you’ll want to peel 6 to 8 Granny Smith apples, once they are all peeled, cut all apples up into roughly 1/4 inch slices. Grab your crockpot and spray the bottoms and the sides and then place all of the cut-up apples into the crockpot, add a half a cup of brown sugar, 2 tablespoons of sugar, 2 teaspoons of cinnamon, and 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg powder. Mix all together until the apples are fully coated with the mixture.
Grab your oats mixture and pour it in over the apples, mix it in lightly the more mixed in you do it the softer the apple crisp will be, and the less you mix it in the crispy or it will be.
And last you’ll want to add roughly 1/4 cup of rolled oats over the top of the apple mixture, so that’s it that’s the Crockpot Apple Crisp Recipe.
And my Crockpot Apple Crisp Recipe turned out really great. I did it on low for 3 hours and then I let it sit for 30 minutes, not on warm but just turn the crockpot off to let it sit soak up all the juices and it turned out really really good.
I hope you guys find it as easy as I did. Once I broke it down I realized that it was a really Easy Crockpot Apple Crisp Recipe and so perfect for this time of year but also just to have a dessert to do in the crockpot.
So as promised a few kinds of lessons learned or tips that I figured out:
TIP 1: Peeling of the apples: I don’t like peeling apples, I’ve never figured out a good way, but it turns out a potato peeler works really well. So I peeled all of my apples with the potato peeler. And then I sliced them all up and it was beautiful, it’s genius, and I don’t know why I didn’t think of that sooner.
TIP 2: This is kind of just one in case you have any preferences for if you like your apple crisp a little crispy or if you like it a little bit softer.
If you want it crispier, I would recommend waiting to put that final oat topping on it, when you’ve got about 45 minutes left on the crockpot, then it will crisp up real nice at the end and not get too soggy.
In case, if you don’t mind it being a little bit softer versus crisp you could do those oats right away and then do it for the full 3 hours. But again, I think you’ll definitely get a crispier topping if you wait to put those oats on until closer to you know the end that lasts 45 minutes.
