non-stick cooking spray 4 medium tart apples 1/2 cup sugar 1 lemon, grated rind and juice of 1 dash cinnamon 5 tablespoons butter 3/4 cup natural cereal with nuts and fruits
Grease side of 3 1/2 quart Crock-Pot lightly with non-stick cooking spray.
Core, peel and slice apples; place in crockpot. Add sugar, lemon rind, lemon juice and cinnamon. Combine butter and cereal. Add to crockpot; mix thoroughly. Cover. Cook on Low for 6 to 8 hours or High for 2 to 3 hours. Serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped topping, if desired.
Delicious! A little on the sweet side so serving it with yogurt will help balance it out. I drizzled just a little honey on top of the greek vanilla yogurt that I used. The apples were very tender and the granola, while soft, maintained a cobbler-ish texture.

Easy to prepare. I used a generic brand granola for the topping - yum!

Cooking all night on low (10pm - 7am) made the apples mushy and watery. Maybe the crockpot could be hooked to a timer to allow it to cook for about 4 hours and maybe even with the lid off. The cereal made a tasty topping.
CDKitchen Note: This may be an old favorite of a recipe and some newer brands of crockpots cook FAR too hot to use the majority of recipes found online. If you have a newer crockpot (and the brand begins with "R") you most likely will have to reduce the cooking time for nearly every recipe you try.
