Crock Pot Apple & Blueberry Crisp

Save Recipe

Hi Bold Bakers!

Christmas is next week and you want to spend your time with family and friends and have all of your baking done and ready to go; that’s why I love to bake in a Crock Pot. This recipe for an Apple & Blueberry Crisp is a great one because it can be made in advance and you don’t need to take up space in the oven.

Around these busy Holidays don’t forget that a crock pot is a huge time and space saver. Making your dessert in a crock pot on a counter top means you have more space in the oven and you can divert your guests to the crock pot to serve themselves.

Crock Pots are fantastic pieces of kitchen equipment that go under appreciated. Most families have one stuffed into a cupboard only to be taken out for pulled pork or chili. Well, I’m here to tell you to get it out from storage and dust it off because we are going to make some amazing desserts like this Apple & Blueberry Crisp. Whip it up in minutes and then set it and forget it.

Author: Gemma Stafford
  • 1/2 cup (60g) all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup (85g) packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup ( 30g) old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 3 tablespoons chopped almonds ( or pecans, walnuts etc)
  • 2 tablespoons cornmeal (fine)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup (60g) chilled butter, cut into small pieces
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (vanilla pod optional)
  • 3 cups (1 lb) fresh Granny smith apples (or whatever apples you use for cooking)
  • 1 cup (4oz) blueberries
  1. Peel and chop your apples into small pieces. Small pieces cook down much better.
  2. In a crock pot (or rice cooker) combine the chopped apples and blueberries in the cornstarch, brown sugar and vanilla extract.
  3. For the Crisp topping combine flour, brown sugar, oats, almonds, cornmeal, salt and cinnamon in the bowl of a food processor
  4. Add butter,pulse 5 times or until the mixture resembles coarse meal. around 10 seconds.(It can be made ahead of time and kept in the fridge)
  5. Generously sprinkle over the crisp topping over the apples. More is better 🙂
  6. Turn on the crock pot on high and cook for 3 hours. The apples will be really soft and the crisp with be fully cooked on top. Serve with vanilla ice cream and whipped cream

    When you say more is better about the topping, do you mean to double it?

    • Gemma Stafford on April 13, 2019 at 7:52 am

      Hi Liz,

      No need to double, just follow the recipe I give. I was just saying how much I love the topping.


  2. Esther Brewer on October 24, 2018 at 11:50 am

    What size crock pot did you use? It seems that the round type might work better than the oblong. Suggestions?

    • Gemma Stafford on October 25, 2018 at 5:15 am

      Hi Esther,
      My pot is a 6 quart pot, a big one! Actually I like a round shape in any pot too, it seems to distribute the heat better, and is actually easier to store too.
      It is a very useful piece of kitchen equipment. The more up to date versions of this pot ( you can research here. The Instant Pot is interesting!
      Gemma 🙂

    Do you cook this with the lid on?

    • Gemma Stafford on June 16, 2018 at 3:10 am

      Hi there,
      Yes, I cooked it with the lid on, but you could take the lid off for the final 20 minutes or so if you like.
      I hope you like this recipe,
      Gemma 😉

    I made this delicious recipe this evening for my husband and father. We all LOVED it! My husband asked me to make it again after his first bite. It definitely reminded us of Fall or Christmas. Mmm! I substituted pancake mix for the corn meal and the crumble came out more like a fluffy cake with little parts that were crispy. It was warm, filling and went great with vanilla ice cream! Thank you for the recipe. Can’t wait to scour your site for more!

    • Gemma Stafford on September 13, 2017 at 6:11 pm

      Hi Chelsea,

      I’m thrilled you like this recipe because it is one of my favorite. Like you said, it tastes like Fall.

      So I strongly recommend you try my Gingerbread pudding in a crock pot. It is hands down my favorite recipe on the whole site and that tastes like Christmas! Have it with loads of vanilla ice cream and you will be in heaven .

    How about making gluten free apple cake in a crockpot ?

    • Gemma Stafford on July 10, 2017 at 6:24 am

      Yum! This is a great suggestion. ( you could try this one too with GF flour. Most baking, apart from yeast baking, does not rely on gluten, so GF flours are a great for all sorts of baking. You could endlessly adapt this recipe, which is delicious by the way!
      Thank you for being in touch,
      Gemma 🙂

      • Shruthi Achut on July 10, 2017 at 7:30 am

        Thank you so much for the guidance Gemma. That’s a great help 🙂

      • Shruthi Achut on July 10, 2017 at 7:33 am

        Yes I will make the gingerbread pudding with oat flour and millet flour and let you know how it turns out. Many thanks Gemma. 😀

        • Gemma Stafford on July 10, 2017 at 7:50 am

          Thank you shruthi, I will be really happy to hear about this from you,
          Gemma 🙂

  6. Shruthi Achut on July 7, 2017 at 11:23 pm

    I have a doubt Gemma. Won’t cooking it for 3 hrs destroy all its nutritional value ?

    • Gemma Stafford on July 8, 2017 at 3:20 am

      Hmm, I’m not sure about that but I know the taste will be great 🙂

      • Shruthi Achut on July 8, 2017 at 8:34 am

        I tried the red velvet. In a steamer. I just made a small amount. I used grated fresh beets and grated sour apples in the ratio 1:3. , in my batter. But the cake turned out bad…. So for my family party I made the Apple crumble. Was quite simple and delicious ! Loved by everyone. Many thanks to you and your mum :D.

        I just wonder what went wrong with the red velvet cake though…..

        • Gemma Stafford on July 10, 2017 at 8:26 am

          Ah Shruti,
          I do not know how this would taste, I have never tried it. beetroot has a specific taste, and I do not know how it would blend with sour apple. I will have to test this to find out! Sounds like it is not a great combination, thank you for letting me know.
          I am happy that you liked my Mum’s apple crumble, I still love that one, simple and good!
          Gemma 🙂

    This is a really good idea! I love it!

  8. Diane Morton on October 15, 2016 at 8:57 am

    Gemma, Can I use a cookie dough in a cup to make soft cookies? If you can make a cake you should be able to make cookies, right?

  9. Butch on January 7, 2016 at 7:54 pm

    I didn’t see where you add the blueberries…am I missing something?

    • Gemma Stafford on January 15, 2016 at 6:25 pm

      Sorry, I just edited it now and added them in with the apples 🙂

  10. Jean louis on December 17, 2015 at 11:08 am

    Hello Gemma, I can see you are such a hardworking lady these days that I am afraid you might not have enough time to answer my following question. I haven’t got any crockpot available at home whereas I would be delighted to make your Crockpot Apple and Blueberry Crisp! Have you got any helpful suggestion ? Thank you so much.

    • Gemma Stafford on December 18, 2015 at 7:14 pm

      Thanks so much for your question, Jean. Check out my recipe on my website for apple crumble you can make in your oven. You’re going to love it. Hope this helps 🙂

      • Jean louis on December 19, 2015 at 2:39 pm

        I’ve just watched your lovely video about how to make a perfect Irish apple crumble which you have been presenting with your mother. I am grateful for that gift of yours!
