Fruit Nut Slow Cooker Baked Apples

These Fruit Nut Slow Cooker Baked Apples are a delicious and different baked apple. These would be a good accompaniment for a pork roast or pork chops instead of apple sauce.

Fruit Nut Slow Cooker Baked Apples

But they are very yummy on their own. Even for breakfast!

What better combination than apples with brown sugar, cinnamon and nuts. This recipe is a little different from others however, because it calls for dried apricots in the brown sugar mixture.

These would work well with other dried fruits and nuts too. Your house will smell divine when these are cooking!
