Healthy Slow Cooker Apple Crisp is a healthier version of traditional apple crisp that is made right in the slow cooker.
Have you seen the honey crisp apples that are available right now? Around me they are amazing. Crisp and sweet and delicious. They are almost as good as the Macintosh apples I miss dearly from growing up in New England. And my favorite way to eat apples, apple crisp. Normally apple crisp is loaded with butter – the recipes I looked at had over a stick – but this one is lightened up but still packed with flavor. This is a rift on a weight watchers recipe that ingeniously uses apple butter to mimic some of the richness from the butter and made a bit more healthy with whole wheat flour.
It also wouldn’t be fair if I didn’t tell you that I have been eating this for breakfast all week with yogurt. There is something so satisfying about warming up a bowl of apple crisp, making a cup of coffee, and taking 15 minutes to relax and enjoy the morning. It’s the perfect way to start the day and even though its a bit more sugar than I typically have in the morning, I balance it out with what I am eating the rest of the day.
