    This sounds delicious! But why is it a slow-cooker recipe and instructions say to put in the oven? Which would be better and how long in the slow-cooker if I decide to make them that way?

      Thanks for pointing that out to us. We’ve removed the word “Slow Cooker” from the title.

    What can I use the apple that was scrapped out of the apple in? Should it be mixed with the granola mix then stuffed back in the apple?

      The only part that should be scooped out of the apple is the core which you do not want to add.

    If I don’t have a slow cooker, how can I cook them?

      You can cook them in the oven. Cover and cook on 350 degrees. Check after 45 minutes. Once tender remove from the oven and allow to cool.
