Slow Cooker Baked Apples

I have been giving way too much attention to pumpkin this fall.  I think for every one apple recipe posted there have been at least three pumpkin.  My apologies.  I actually love apples but eat them just plain.  Raw.  Delicious.

Last week Mr. J was in Alaska.  All week.  I hate Alaska.  Not only was he gone but talking is nearly impossible with the time difference.  He was getting done at work just as I was climbing into bed.  5 minutes conversations just aren't enough.  He is back now so enough of that...the point is I was by myself.  Bored.  I couldn't really cook because when I cook massive amounts of food accumulate.  Instead I played on the internet until I found something suitable.  

Slow Cooker = Easy

Apples = Healthy

Brown Sugar and Walnuts = Smile

These were super quick and easy to get prepped.  Then all I did was turn on the slow cooker for 3 hours.  

You could call this dessert but I called it the most perfect fall snack.  Breakfast is also very much an option.  I had these baked apples for both.
