Crockpot spiced apples

If you are anything like me you LOVE dessert but hate the calories, added sugars and artificial ingredients of the store bought stuff.

This recipe is easy, delicious and good for you – the best kind of dessert! I have experimented with steel oats as those are heartier and more filling but they don’t cook up as well as rolled oats do, so I recommend sticking with rolled.

Crockpot spiced apples: Core the apples

Start by coring your apples with a spoon or melon baller, creating a cavity or small bowl inside. I try not to lose too much of the apple but enough that you can enjoy the mixture.

Since I recommend grass fed butter it should already be cold and firm, but if it’s not cold enough you can chop it into chunks and put it in the freezer for a short bit. Another option is to have the butter fully softened and just mush it in with the mixture as well. If you are dairy sensitive ghee works perfect as well or even coconut oil is just as good too!

Combine all the other ingredients first and combine well to mix the flavors then add the butter and mix well again.

Let the stuffing begin :-). Really cram it in there and make sure you get a little of everything. It’s easy for the heavy ingredients to settle in the bowl so make sure to keep things mixed so you don’t miss out on any goodies!

If you want an added bonus: double the mixture and just put it at the bottom of the crockpot to cook through. Depending on how much butter you have left in the mixture if you do this method you will want to consider adding a little more liquid like water, milk or coconut oil so the oats have something to simmer in. Refrigerate and re-heat in the am! Or simply double up the overall recipe and have a full apple for breakfast.

Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Core out the apples creating a small bowl to hold the mixture. I leave the bottom in tact to help hold it together.
  2. Combine all ingredients except butter to thoroughly combine. Chop butter into tiny pieces and combine with mixture. Doesn't need to be dough like but the butter should just be coated well to prevent it from sticking in big clumps
  3. Stuff the apples with the mixture making to sure get a little of everything in each one. Pack tight. Place in slow cook and cook on high for about 2 hours. Some crockpots may need less or you can stretch out the time by doing low for 4-5 hours instead. NOTE: Something I have done is double the batch of mixture and I just put at the bottom of the crockpot to cookup for another dessert or breakfast. If you do this you may need to add additional liquid to the mixture so the oats have something to simmer in!
  4. Serve warm and enjoy!
