Slow Cooker Apple Granola Crumble is easy, delicious and healthy! Dang! A triple header. It is a dump and go recipe that is good as dessert and at breakfast too.
How about this for a simple fun treat that gets thrown together in actual minutes? I seriously don’t think it even takes 15 minutes. It takes a little time to peel the apples but you should see me rip through a bushel. I’m kind of proud of that. Naturally, it centers around food. I think that happened because I really really love apples. How versatile can one fruit get!
You only cook this recipe for 4 to 6 hours on low. How fun is it to make a breakfast in a crock pot and have it steaming hot and ready to go with little effort? Speaking of apples and slow cookers and delicious food- I have another recipe you should try too. It is Slow Cooker Apple Pie Cake. This one is for dessert though. You don’t slice it but it all starts with a cake mix. Yikes, yikes. Get back on track Ginny!
This is a sweetish crockpot recipe but the sweetener is maple syrup. That makes me feel a lot better about sweet recipes when maple syrup is used instead of refined sugars. In fact, do you know who Dr. Axe is? If not he is an extremely popular doctor with a huge following on the internet. Well, he chose this recipe to feature in one of his columns about crockpot breakfasts. That made me feel great. So that means this Slow Cooker Apple Granola Crumble is out there and getting kudos. I will also tell you that I would not scoff at you if you had it for dessert either. Then you’d be just like me!
Slow Cooker Apple Granola Crumble
- Peel, core and cut the apples into thick slices and then chunks. This is what I did. Cut the apple in half - then half again and then those halves in half. This gives you 8 thick slices. Cut those thick slices in chunks - like about 3 per slice.
- Add everything to the crock pot and stir well.
- Cover and cook on low 4 hours.
That is it! Ready to enjoy and it will keep in the refrigerator for 3 days.
