During fall, there’s one fragrance that dominates my kitchen. The smell of cinnamon is constantly coming out of my oven in one creation or another. Cinnamon is probably the spice I use most frequently. There’s something about the flavor that makes just about everything taste better.
I love using the spices from Frontier Co-Op, so I’m happy to partner with them in spreading the word about their products. This recipe highlight’s Frontier’s Organic Vietnamese Cinnamon. This cinnamon is so flavorful as it contains twice as much oil as average cinnamon. Frontier gives back to the Vietnamese region where this cinnamon originates. They donate books, desks, beds, and room and board funding so that children from the remote farming villages can attend school.
It’s so nice to know that while I’m stocking my pantry with Frontier products, I’m also supporting their mission of giving back. Frontier believes in the importance of cooking with purpose, so their non-GMO, ethically produced spices are a great fit in my kitchen.This apple cobbler is so easy to make in the slow cooker!

Apple cobbler is one of my favorite comfort foods of fall. It’s easier to make than apple pie, but it still has all that delicious flavor. When we came home with 68 apples from an apple picking excursion a few weeks ago, I knew this apple cobbler wouldn’t be far behind. I like using the Crock Pot for cobblers so I don’t have to keep a close eye on them in the oven. With the longer low temperature bake time, the apples get nice and soft without losing their texture. I remove the top from the Crock Pot for the last 10 minutes to help the topping dry out a bit.
This apple corer, my favorite new kitchen toy, made the apple prep easier than usual for this recipe. I can’t believe I’ve made it through so many falls without this handy device. I love how it opens up to easily release the cores. My kids have been using it to prepare their own apple snacks during the day. It’s one less kitchen hazard to worry about!
Crock Pot Apple Cobbler Recipe
For the Apple Filling
- 3 lbs apples peeled, cored, and sliced
- 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
- 2 tbs gluten-free flour
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp nutmeg
- 1/2 tsp salt
Place the apple slices in a large bowl. Add the maple syrup, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt to the apples. Stir to coat evenly, then transfer the apples to the slow cooker.
To make the cobbler topping, place the cornmeal, oats, flour, salt, and baking powder in a large bowl. (I use the same bowl I just used for the apples. No need to wash.) In a small bowl, stir together the egg, coconut oil, maple syrup, and coconut milk. Pour this mixture into the oat mixture, and stir to combine well. The mixture should stick together easily, so add another tablespoon or two of milk if it seems too dry. Transfer the cobbler topping mixture to the slow cooker and spread it evenly on top of the apples.
Cook the cobbler on low for 2 hours, or until the apples are tender. Remove the top and cook for another 10 minutes. Enjoy warm or at room temperature. Leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator for several days.
