Easy Slow Cooker Apple Crisp Recipe (Gluten Free)

If you’re looking for a healthy dessert, this slow cooker apple crisp recipe is for YOU! It’s so easy to make and is full of delicious warming spices and seasonal apples. Plus, the crumble topping is bursting with healthy fats and fiber from the oats, nuts, and ghee. Vegetarian and Paleo friendly, too, with a savvy substitution.

I went with a mixed nut combo of pecans and walnuts and oats. Add just a little bit of anti-inflammatory cinnamon and our Global Family Farms Yacon syrup– a low-glycemic sweetener, and you’re good to go.


For the filling:

  • 12 organic apples, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon organic ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon organic ground nutmeg
  • 2 teaspoon organic cardamom
  • 2 tablespoons lemon/lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon organic cornstarch

For the topping:

  • 1/4 to 1/3 cup organic yacon syrup (adjust as per your taste)
  • 1 cup organic raw pecans
  • 1 cup organic raw walnuts
  • 1 cup organic gluten free oats
  • 1 teaspoon organic ground cinnamon
  • 5 tablespoons grass-fed ghee


In a large crockpot, combine apples with spices, lemon juice and cornstarch. Stir to combine.

Meanwhile, in a food processor, combine all of the topping ingredients. Pulse until coarsely chopped. You want it to be crumbly and well-mixed, but not too fine. Cover the apple mixture with the crumb topping.

Place a dishtowel over the top of the crockpot and cover with the lid. Cook on high for 3 hours.
