I cannot get enough of slow cooker season! I like to use my Crock Pot as often as I can during the fall and winter– primarily because it require so little effort and it’ll make my house smell delicious.

Slow Cooker Cranberry Walnut Stuffed Apples need to make an appearance in your Crock Pot ASAP– if not for Thanksgiving, then just because. I mean, you’ve earned it, right? Right.

Slow Cooker Cranberry Walnut Stuffed Apples Recipe:


  • 3/4 cup walnuts, toasted and chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped dried cranberries
  • 1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup rolled oats
  • 3 tbsp. unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • Kosher salt
  • 4 large or 6 medium firm baking apples (such as Rome, Golden Delicious or Honey Crisp)
  • 1 cup apple cider Vanilla ice cream and pure maple syrup, for serving
In a small bowl, combine the walnuts, cranberries, brown sugar, oats, butter, lemon juice, cinnamon and 1/2 teaspoon salt and mix it together into a wet sandy mixture. Core each apple with a melon baller, making sure not to scoop completely through to the bottom or the sides. Stuff each apple with the cranberry-walnut mixture and place the apples in the slow cooker and pour in the apple cider. Cover and cook on low until the apples are tender, about 3 to 4 hours depending on the size and type of apple. (If your apples are on the smaller size, check after 2 hours; they may cook faster.) Serve each apple whole or cut in half in a bowl with a scoop of ice cream and a drizzle of maple syrup and enjoy!
