Crock Pot Walnut-Stuffed Glazed Apples

apples

Fall is right around the corner! That means it’s time to get ready for apple season. A few years ago I posted a Crock Pot Apple Cake recipe that went nearly viral. I hope this one is shared just as much because it’s low in fat, so easy to make, and one the whole family will enjoy. Crock Pot Walnut-Stuffed Glazed Apples come out tender (but not mushy) and will have your entire house smelling like a bakery (or apple farm).

Serve these apples warm from the crock pot with low-fat frozen yogurt, ice cream, or side of low-fat coffee cake. Any apple variety does the trick but my favorites are Golden Delicious and Granny Smith. Enjoy!
