The Healthy Crock-Pot: Hot Apple Dump Dessert

By on December 8, 2015

Crock-pots are not just for dinner! They can be quite handy in preparing other meals including warm, comforting yummy desserts. Desserts that are healthy so you do not have to feel guilty about indulging yourself. Crock-pot desserts are a perfect treat for chilly days. 

This apple filled dessert has the same flavors as apple pie without the guilt of a fattening crust. Hot Apple Dump Dessert is easy, quick to assemble and yes, healthy. It is similar to apple crisp.  If you use gluten free granola it becomes a gluten free dessert.  I use pure maple syrup in place of refined sugar and organic apple juice to clean it up even more (I try to use organic ingredients when possible).

Hot Apple Dump Dessert is so easy! The hardest part is peeling and coring the apples. After that you just dump and mix the ingredients.  As it cooks your house will smell delicious! My husband likes to warm up the leftovers for breakfast the next day. That is if there are any leftovers….

Hi! This is Donna. I am a grandmother, mom, wife, and a teacher. I also love cookbooks, love to bake and really enjoy food! At age 56 I have developed a love of fitness after losing 46 pounds on the 21 Day Fix! I have always struggled with my weight! When menopause struck and things got totally out of control... My weight only went up not down. My muffin top turned into a bakery shelf. I desperately wanted to lose weight and improve my health. I wanted to be able to play and keep up with my beautiful grandchildren. Nothing I tried worked until I found the 21 Day Fix. Now instead of a tight size 16 I wear a comfortable 8 and even some 6's! At age 56 I am in the best shape of my life. My current goals are to improve my strength and to continue toning my body. I along with my daughter, Danielle, am here to help you reach your own fitness goals! You are never too young or old to become fitter, healthier, and stronger!
