Easy Slow Cooker Apple Crisp

I hardly ever use my slow cooker, especially when it comes to dessert. There are some amazing crock pot desserts out there, but I needed to get on the bandwagon. This easy slow cooker apple crisp reminded me of how quick and painless baking a dish in a crock pot can be!

Bill would prefer there was not oatmeal in the topping, but it helps maintain the structure of the topping during the 4 hour cooking time. I, on the other hand, love an oat streusel on a crisp. Sometimes I win these battles, though my husband would insist I win more than I lose. A cook’s prerogative!

How to Make Slow Cooker Apple Crisp

This is definitely a no-brainer recipe. The most difficult part is peeling and slicing the apples.  You just add them to the crockpot, mix up the dry topping ingredients then work in the butter using a pastry blender or your fingers (messy, but works wonderfully!). Cook on low for 4 hours and you’ll have a hot, cinnamon spiced slow cooker apple crisp for dessert!

A Few Tips for making this easy apple crisp:

  • Use apples that will keep their shape when cooking, like Granny Smiths. Even these will lose most of their firmness. The consistency of the end result resembles chunky applesauce.
  • Don’t forget to put a double layer of paper towels between the lid and crock pot. As the crisp cooks and steam is produced, the paper towels absorb the steam instead of letting it condense and drip onto the topping.
  • And my favorite tip: Top your warm slow cooker apple crisp with a nice scoop of vanilla ice cream that softens from the heat of the dessert. Heavenly.

  1. Making crisp in a slow cooker…that’s new to me, and I love the idea. It looks great, Liz.

  2. I love that last plate, gorgeous! This does indeed look like an easy recipe and I bet the house smells terrific. Last year I purchased a small slow cooker and it’s the perfect size for 2, I can certainly see making this gorgeous recipe this week. Thanks for the tip about the paper towel, I would not have thought of that.

  3. This sounds so easy! I’ve convinced myself that crockpot desserts would be difficult! I have to try this!

  4. I really love a good apple crisp, Liz and yours looks perfect! I’m definitely feeling inspired to use my slow cooker more after today and I will be making this crisp!

  5. what a great way to make crisp .. love the videos great job Liz!

  6. I I have to try this! I have never made a dessert in the slow cooker but I think I can hand this and it looks great!

  7. I love apple desserts! I just made on in the slow cooker last night! I cannot wait to try this one!

  8. It never occurs to me to use a slow cooker for dessert but this would be wonderful during hot weather when you don’t want to turn on the oven or during holidays when your oven is jam packed with other stuff.

  9. Totally perfect for Sunday supper! Throw it in the slow cooker and you’ve got a delicious dessert waiting for you! (The aroma in the house helps too). Yum!

  10. I am just now warming up to cook with my slow cooker. I have to try this recipe.

  11. Sounds like a perfect dessert for fall!

  12. Fabulous AND easy? Oh yes, I’m loving this!

  13. Yummy, this is the perfect no effort autumnal dessert.

  14. Apple Crisp is so goooood! This one looks delicious!

  15. I love apples!! This crisp looks incredible!!

  16. The paper towel tip is so handy! I’ll have to try that!

  17. I love how simple this is to make! I can’t wait to try it!

  18. a classic fall dessert — cool that you can make it in a slow cooker!

  19. Carolyn Ingram says:

    This looks divine!

  20. Looks delish! I use a bird’s beak knife on the apples- it has taken much of the pain out of peeling them. I also picked up Jacques Pepin’s method of doing the rest- a cone cut at the top and bottom after peeling, then slice in half and cut out the core. The curved blade of the knife makes all the difference as it glides around the apple.
    I do agree with you about the oats! They are at home on an apple crisp. *yum!*

  21. Looks so good – apple crisp is a favorite but have never tried in the slow cooker.

  22. Last Christmas I attempted to make an Apple Cobbler in my slow cooker. It didn’t turn out well at all. I’m banking on this one to be my saving grace. Thanks also for the paper towel tip.
