You’ve got to try this crustless crockpot apple crisp pie! It tastes like the warm apple pie filling without the crust and cooked in your slow cooker all day too which makes it so easy!
So everyone loves apple pie right?? Well I do for many reasons, but my favorite part is the inside, I could kinda’ care less about the crust. I also love my slow cooker especially during the summertime when I don’t want to turn on my oven but still want dessert after dinner. This crockpot apple crisp pie is just what you need if you’re like me and love a warm apple dessert but don’t want to cook….it just does the work for you! It’s one of our favorite dessert crockpot recipes. Sponsored by Kroger, all opinions are my own. (originally published 10/15 – revised)
I have several crockpots in a variety of sizes.
Depending on what I’m making I will use a larger or smaller version, for this crockpot apple pie dessert I used my 6 quart slow cooker, if you wanted to double it you could use an 8 qt. as well.
This healthy dessert is great for Christmas morning, on the weekend, or for dessert year round really..I assure you everyone will love it.
With the apples left in larger slices it is a bit like a copycat Cracker Barrel apples dish. You know the one you get as a side dish if you choose to do so and they are absolutely amazing, yeah..kinda’ like that!
You can grab everything you need at your local Kroger store and there are many ways of creating the crumble or “crisp” on top. One way is to use Kashi cereal, another is use a mixture of cinnamon, brown sugar and oats as mentioned below. Everything can be found at Kroger. 😉
The oats used in the crumble on top bring a bit of texture and “crisp” to the dish, and you could easily add walnuts inside the dish or into the topping for an added crunch and flavor too!
Here’s what you will need to make your crustless crockpot apple crisp pie and a video showing us making it too:
- 8 Green apples (green stay a bit more turgid and don’t mush up as much as red when cooked, but your choice)
- Brown Sugar
- Walnuts and even raisins are optional and could be added to the topping mixture
If you’re interested in something similar to make in your pressure cooker, try this Instant Pot apple crisp that tastes similar but takes just 1 minute to cook!!

Crockpot Apple Crisp
- 8 green apples cored, peeled and sliced
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 1/4 c flour
- 3/4 c old fashioned oats
- 1 1/2 c brown sugar
- 1 tbsp cornstarch
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 c walnuts optional
- 1/3 c raisins optional
- 4 tbsp butter
- 3/4 c apple juice or cider
- Core, peel and thinly slice your apples (a bit thicker makes them a bit firmer, really thin makes it mushier). I peel half of the peels off because I like the taste, up to you if you want all peels off. Put them in a bowl.
- Mix together your cinnamon, 3/4 c of flour, 1/2 c. oatmeal, 1 c. brown sugar and your cornstarch. (add raisins and/or walnuts if desired)
- Add your apples and fold together until all apples slices are coated well.
- Spray the inside of your crockpot with non stick spray, or use a liner.
- Pour apple mixture inside. Pour apple juice/cider on top of them.
- In another bowl mix together 1/2 c. of flour, 1/2 c. brown sugar, salt, your butter - melted, and remainder of your old fashioned oats 1/4 c.
- Sprinkle this mixture on top of the apples in your slow cooker.
- Put lid on and set to low for 2 1/2 hours.
- Serve as is or top with vanilla ice cream.
