Easy Crock Pot Vegan Apple Crisp

Here's another gem I discovered this weekend.  I got creative and just threw this together and it happened to turn out fantastic!  Take it to Thanksgiving or have it for dessert tonight.  The best part about it is you can make the apple pie filling in the crock pot all day, mix up the crumble and throw it in the oven for 15 minutes and have an amazing finish to dinner.  Vegan and very little sugar to boot.

Before the magic
Crock Pot Vegan Apple Crisp
serves 6-8
  • 6-8 apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
  • a handful or two of raisins
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 tablespoons honey

For the Crisp Part
  • 1 3/4 cup oatmeal
  • 1 cup raw organic sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup butter substitute, like smart balance
Throw the apple part in the crock pot and cook on LOW for 6 hours or so.  Place the apple mixture in a baking dish and pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.  Mix in a medium to small bowl all of the crisp ingredients with a small fork.  Spread it out all over the apple dish and bake for about 15 minutes, or until the top is golden brown.  Serve warm.

  3. Great recipe, but just one thing - if it has honey in it, it's not vegan. Try using agave syrup or molasses.
