  1. Using an apple corer or paring knife, cut around the core, leaving about half an inch at the bottom. Remove as much of the core and seeds as possible.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together the raisins, brown sugar, oats, nuts, cinnamon, and butter.
  3. Place the apples right side up in the crockpot. Spoon the mixture evenly into the apples. Add 1/2 cup of water (or apple cider) to the bottom of the crock pot.
  4. Cover and slow cook on LOW for 4 hours, or until apples are soft all the way through but not mushy.
  5. Serve warm. Optional: Drizzle honey over the cooked apples or add a scoop of ice cream on the top of each one!


The best apples to use for whole baked apples are firm and perfectly round ones. I usually use ones that are crisp and just a little tart, like Granny Smith, Fuji, Pink Lady, or Honey Crisp.
