  • small mixing bowl
  • rubber spatula or large mixing spoon
  • crockpot
  • large serving spoon
  • measuring cups and spoons
  • knife and cutting board
  • vegetable peeler
  • citrus juicer optional
  • pastry blender optional


Apple Mixture

  • 6 apples
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ginger
  • 1/2 cup honey

Oat Crisp Topping

  • 1 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon


  • Start by peeling and coring the apples. Then slice the apples into ½-inch slices. Pour into the crock pot.
  • Combine the lemon juice, cinnamon, ginger, and honey into the apples and stir.
  • In a small mixing bowl, combine the oats, salt, sugar, cinnamon, and butter together.
  • Use your hands or a pastry blender to cut the butter into the dry ingredients. Pour on top of the apple mixture.
  • Turn the crockpot on a low setting for about 3 hours, or until apples are tender and oat topping is slightly crisp. Serve warm.


For more spice, add cloves and cardamom for a deeper flavor. Use about ⅛ tsp cloves and ¼ tsp cardamom when using these ingredients. A little goes a long way.
For a slight creaminess added on top, pour 1-2 tbsp of heavy cream over each serving of apple crisp. This will add a light but rich flavor that complements the taste and warmth of it. 
For a quicker dessert, follow all instructions but put the crock pot on high for about 1 hour and 30 minutes, or until the apples are tender and the oat topping is slightly crisp. Check at one hour mark, and often after this, to prevent overcooking.
