Cinnamon-Walnut Stuffed Apples made in the slow cooker are the epitome of healthful comfort food. Packed with lightly sweetened walnuts plus a generous amount of cinnamon, we’ve given you the option to add raisins and and a little brandy or rum…or both.
For sweetness, this recipe relies primarily on the natural sugars in the apples and a little apple juice. However, there is a small amount of brown sugar used as well (1/3 cup for 6 apples). If you’d rather swap the sugar for a brown sugar alternate, you could try Swerve brown sugar, or coconut sugar—it depends on your nutrition goals and preferences. Since the recipe makes its own “syrup,” honey or maple syrup are also an option, though be prepared for a stickier job when filling the apples.
