With the popularity of my 100 Days of No Processed Foods: Crock Pot Style post, I’ve realized there is a huge need and desire for crock pot recipes that don’t call for pre-packaged foods. When glancing through Pinterest, it’s evident that most crock pot recipes call for mixes, boxes, and cans of stuff from the grocery store. That’s why I so enjoy posting wholesome, whole-food crock pot recipes each Friday.

I got an idea in my head that wouldn’t go away. I have a dream – my dream is a huge list and resource of crock pot desserts that don’t call for cake mix, pudding, and canned pie mix. Did you know that before today, there isn’t such a list (at least not one that I can find). Well, BOOYA, BABY! I spent hours compiling this list for you. And it was a lot of fun hours, because as we all know, I love list making.

It’s hard to find wholesome slow cooker dessert recipes. Most of them are cake mixes baked in the crock – or a pie made with canned cherry pie filling. I know there is a need for healthy slow cooker desserts – and that’s why I provide a dessert section in both Crock On and Keep Crockin’. Because really, a girl should be able to get her chocolate on without eating it from a box.


SPECIAL NOTE: In some of these recipes you’re going to see white sugar, white flour, and even vegetable oil. I don’t use those things. For me, when I see them I just automatically substitute whole-food ingredients instead. It’s something that happens in my head – along with a host of other things, but that’s neither here nor there.

A few of the recipes call for graham crackers, but I’ve included a recipe for you to make your own. So, get creative! Instead of marking a recipe off because it calls for crushed, store-bought cookies, just make cookies and crush them yourself.

  • If it calls for all-purpose white flour, I use white wheat (from my Nutrimill, but you can buy white wheat at the store).
  • If it calls for white sugar, I use sucanat in equal amounts – coconut sugar or honey granules would work as well.
  • If it calls for vegetable or canola oil, I use melted coconut oil.
  • If it calls for cornstarch, I use arrowroot instead.


So, this list is for you – no mixes or boxes included. So you can make a crock pot dessert and make it wholesome.  Everyone needs a wholesome piece of dessert after having bacon dinner.
