Easy slow cooker apple peanut butter crisp for all of my peanut butter lovers out there! The apple filling is coated with peanut butter and topped with a peanut butter crumble. Serve this up with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for the perfect Fall dessert.
Welcome to another month of the peanut butter bash. This month we’re doing apples and peanut butter. The perfect ingredient combo for Fall and a personal favorite of mine. I love just cutting apples into slices and scooping up the peanut butter up. It was a childhood favorite that I was able to pass it down to my 6-year-old son. I think he prefers Reese’s chocolate peanut butter spread, but peanut butter will do in a pinch.
I know I shared a pretty amazing apple peanut butter crumble a few years ago. I can’t believe it’s been that long. Time sure does fly. This is kind of a spin off from that recipe but it’s made for the slow cooker. I’ve been saying that I want to create more slow cooker recipes and I’m sticking to it. You can expect to see a few more from me in the next few months.
Who else is incredibly excited for Fall? Besides it being hoodie weather, I’m a pretty big fan of the flavors too. I can’t wait to get my hands on some concord grapes. The local farmer’s market sells them by the box full!!
It’s a nice bonus that my creative juices really get flowing for the blog this time of the year. I have several ideas wrote down and as soon as I have a little bit of free time, I’m going to get testing. I should be catching up on work now that my kiddo has started 1st grade.
There’s a healthy dose of topping to this recipe. If you don’t want all of that extra topping, you may want to cut the topping ingredients in half. I also used this 4-quart slow cooker for this recipe.
Slow Cooker Apple Peanut Butter Crisp
This slow cooker apple peanut butter crisp has tender slices of apple wrapped in a peanut butter glaze and topped with a peanut butter crumble.
- 7 cups granny smith apples (about 8 small apples), peeled, cored, sliced
- 3/4 cup smooth peanut butter
- 3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
- 1 T. all-purpose flour
- 3/4 cup butter, room temperature
- 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
- 1 cup light brown sugar, packed
- 1 + 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup oats
In a 4-quart slow cooker, add in the apples, brown sugar, peanut butter, and flour. Stir until the apples are coated and everything is incorporated
In a large bowl, add in the butter and peanut butter. Mix on medium until combined.
Add in the brown sugar, flour, and oats and mix on medium until a crumbly mixture forms. Sprinkle the topping on the apples. It's a thick topping, so set aside some if it's too much for your liking.
Cover slow cooker with a paper towel and set to low. Let cook for 2 hours 45 minutes to 3 hours 15 minutes. It depends on how you want your apples done. Mine were slightly firm, but not crunchy and I turned the heat off at 2 hours 45 minutes.
Scoop and serve. Add a scoop of ice cream too!
