Crock Pot Junkie

apple yummy
For the 2nd time this week, I’ve used the crock pot. I just LOVE being able to fill it up, turn it on and leave it! I can go to work, write a blog, take a shower, go workout … or just about anything! Well, not quite anything. I didn’t quite time my crock potting right once this week and realized my dish would be finished at 2:30 … IN THE MORNING! Doh! So I couldn’t just go to sleep, I had to set my alarm to wake up in the middle of the night, stumble to the kitchen and shut it off. The next day Shirley told me that’s why some crock pots have timers on them. Timers?! What?!! My love for the crock pot just grew a little more.
Crock Pot Apples
4 medium to large apples
4 Tablespoons coconut oil
Core apples. To core, using an apple corer or paring knife, cut around the core (about ¼ inch from the stem all the way around) but leave about half an inch at the bottom. Use the knife to ‘drill out’ the core.
Place the apples in your crock pot. If they’re too big and round to fit, you can chop off the sides to make the apples square. This will allow them to fit in the crock pot. Place the sides of the apples that you chopped off around the whole apples in the pot.
Fill the center of each apple with raisins and walnuts. Place a tablespoon of coconut oil on top of each apple. Generously cover with cinnamon.
Add ½ inch of water to the pot. Cook on low overnight and enjoy a hot breakfast in the morning! Tasty served with eggs!
Alternatively, bake covered at 350 degrees in a glass dish for 45 minutes-1 hour in the morning.
