Apple pie and gingerbread unite in the slow cooker to create a cozy crumble ribboned with oat and flaxseed streusel, studded with pecans and filled with warming spice. Nutritious enough for breakfast, yet sweet enough for dessert.
Ingredients
  • 5 cups thinly sliced (~1/4-inch thick) apples (about 4 medium-sized apples)
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • ¾ cup oat flour
  • ⅓ cup coconut sugar (sub for date sugar or light brown sugar)
  • 2 tbsp ground flaxseed
  • 2½ tsp apple pie spice
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ⅓ cup coconut oil, melted
  • 2 tsp molasses
  • 3 tbsp chopped pecans
  • Cooking spray
  • Optional toppings: plain (or vanilla) Greek yogurt, vanilla ice cream
Instructions
  1. In a large bowl, combine oats, flour, sugar, flax, salt, and apple pie spice. Stir with a whisk. Add coconut oil and molasses. Mix to combine. Set aside ¾ cup of mixture. Add apples to remaining oat mixture; toss to combine.
  2. Coat a 4- to 5- quart slow cooker with cooking spray. Pour apple mixture into slow cooker. Sprinkle evenly with reserved ¾ cup oat mixture. Sprinkle evenly with crushed pecans. Cover and cook on LOW for 3 hours, until apples are soft and top is browned.
Notes
To ensure crumble is gluten free (if necessary), use certified gluten free oats and oat flour.
