Even if you are a morning person, waking up to a hot cooked cinnamon-sweet breakfast is a welcome treat! For those who are not morning people, having something ready to serve the kids first thing is decadent!

Slow Cooker Baked Apple Recipe

6 medium to large green apples
¼ cup raisins
¼ cup honey
1 teaspoon cinnamon
6 tablespoons coconut oil, butter, or ghee

Slow Cooker Baked Apple Instructions:

1.  Core apples.  To core, using an apple corer or paring knife, cut around the core (about ¼ inch from the stem all the way around) but leave about half an inch at the bottom.  Use the knife to ‘drill out’ the core.

2.  Divide raisins, honey, cinnamon, and coconut oil between the apples.

3.  Place apples in a crock pot and add ½ inch of water.  Cook on low overnight and enjoy a hot breakfast in the morning.

*Alternatively, bake covered at 350 degrees in a glass dish for 45 minutes-1 hour in the morning.

4.  Top with with cream, yogurt, coconut milk, or just eat plain.

You are obviously brilliant. Why in all my years did I never think of using a slow cooker? We love baked apples with all the fixin’s at our place. I am definitely making these. Thanks!

I bet this would be good with maple syrup instead of honey!! I wonder if you can substitute nuts (walnuts or pecans) instead of raisins? or at least mixed in to lessen the amount of raisins?

Those look so delicious! I used to make stuff like that when I was small; I’d steal my moms left over pie making supplies after her and my grandmother had made batches the previous day, and I’d toil in our kitchen in the wee hours of the morning before anyone was awake so that I could make and bake my own apple pastries. Usually they weren’t too bad but I got in trouble a lot for using the oven lol

These look so amazing, I can’t wait for apple season! I like to make homemade granola and I bet a dollop of greek style yogurt and a sprinkle of granola would be incredible on these. Thanks for sharing this great idea.
