We love apples in this house, so when I came across this Crock Pot Baked Apples recipe in Gooseberry Patch’s Everyday Slow Cooker. I knew it would be the perfect recipe to treat my family!
Crock Pot Baked Apples Notes:
- I threw these Crock Pot Baked Apples together in my beautiful Cassie (my 9 x13 casserole slow cooker made by Crock Pot). I also think that Sir Hamilton (my 6-quart Hamilton Beach Programmable Insulated Slow Cooker) would be a pretty good fit for this recipe as well.
- If you have an apple corer/slicer, it makes prep a breeze! However, if you are like my mom or my friend Heather, you can peel and slice and apple just as quick as I can with my apple corer/slicer. So do what works for you!
- The original recipe called for apple cider. I couldn’t find apple cider though, so I used apple juice. From what I found after researching the difference between apple cider and apple juice is not only the texture but also the sweetness. Since this was a dessert recipe and has Granny Smith apples in it (which are a tart apple), I wasn’t too worried about it being too sweet. And it ended up being perfection! Not too sweet and not too tart.
- I served it up over ice cream to make it more dessert-like. However, these Crock Pot Baked Apples would be delicious all on their own as a side or a snack. I would recommend trying them out with ice cream and on their own. they are superb!

When you consider that foods deemed as bad for you are generally high in calories, the apple is a prime example of a food that can provide you with a range of nutritious benefits as well as barely making an impact on your calorie allowance.
Thank you for this post, love this.
What kind of chopped nuts? Pecans?

The original recipe did not specify, but I think that pecans would be really good! Enjoy!
