Start Slow Cooker Autumn’s Best Apple Crisp when company arrives for dinner. Smell the aroma of fresh apples and cinnamon and then enjoy a warm dessert.
This Slow Cooker Autumn’s Best Apple Crisp is one of my husband’s all time favorite desserts.
After a hospital visit and learning that my husband could no longer eat nuts, I had to make some changes to our original recipe to accommodate him.
We actually like this even better!
I wanted a crunch on the top, so instead of nuts, I use Grapenut Cereal Nuggets. It gives nice texture to the dessert, while at the same time, adding some fiber.
