  • 6-8 baking apples peeled, cored, and thickly sliced
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar divided
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 3 teaspoons cinnamon divided
  • Pinch nutmeg
  • Pinch ground cloves
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • Pinch salt
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup ginger snaps crumbled
  • 1 cup walnuts chopped
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter cold and cubed


  • In the crock, combine the apples, ⅓ cup brown sugar, granulated sugar, molasses, 2 teaspoons cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves and stir to combine. Allow to sit and marinate while you prepare the crumb topping.
  • Combine flour, salt, oats, ginger snaps, remaining brown sugar and cinnamon, and walnuts in a large bowl. Using your fingers, cut the butter into the flour topping until it is a crumbly consistency.
  • Pour the gingerbread topping over the apples and spread evenly.
  • Cover the slow cooker and cook on low for 3-4 hours, or high for 2 hours, or until apples are soft.
  • Remove lid and allow crumble to sit for 30-60 minutes before serving, letting the apple juices thicken. Serve with vanilla ice cream or fresh whipped cream and enjoy!
