Slow Cooker Baked Apples

This recipe for slow cooker baked apples could be for dessert, or for breakfast; if you can refrain from adding ice cream in the morning! 


  • 5 medium-sized gala apples
  • 5.125 cup granola (used Bare Naked Original Cinnamon)
  • 2 Tbsp melted butter
  • 5 tsp maple syrup
  • ice cream or whipped cream for serving (if making for dessert)


  1. Cut a layer off the top of the apples with a knife. With a melon baller tool, or a measuring teaspoon, remove the core and seeds from each apple.
  2. Pack 1/8 cup granola into each apple, and place into the slow cooker.
  3. Drizzle the apples evenly with the melted butter, and add a teaspoon of maple syrup to each apple.
  4. Cover, and cook on high for 2 to 2 1/2 hours until tender, but not falling apart. Serve as is, or add ice cream or whipped cream. Enjoy!
