  • 1/4 cup brown sugar - more or less or none it's up to you. I made this as a treat so I used 1/4 cup for my older kiddos
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup walnuts or pecans chopped - optional - NOT for babies
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 4 Macintosh apples cored
  • 1 water - you could use 1 cup of apple juice if you really want a totally apple flavor but it does not need juice
  • maple syrup to drizzle


  • Turn a large crock-pot on to low heat
  • Core the apples using a knife and a melon-baller
  • Whizz the brown sugar, oatmeal and cinnamon in a food processor.
  • Place the apples on a plate then fill the apples with the filling
  • (sprinkle on the nuts- not for babies)
  • Drizzle maple syrup over the tops of the apples.
  • Put the apples carefully into the crockpot
  • You may dab with some butter if desired - I usually do this when I bake apples in the oven but I didn't for this method.
  • Pour the apple juice or water into the crockpot but not over the apples, unless you want a more soggy type texture
  • Cover and cook 2 1/2 to 3 hours on low heat until the apples are soft and begin to collapse.


How to Eat
For babies: scoop out apple flesh and mash or puree, scoop out apple flesh and oatmeal and mash/puree then drizzle with yogurt
For big kids: Serve warm with oodles of frozen vanilla yogurt for a sweet dessert.
