Gluten Free Slow Cooker Squash & Apples

Gluten Free Slow Cooker Squash & Apples reminds me of fall!  I love how easy it is to prepare in the crockpot.  There is nothing better than the combination of winter squash and apples.  It is comfort food to me.

This Paleo dish tastes a lot like hot apple pie, but is far more healthy!  I served it as a side dish to Way Better Chicken Tenders but it could be used with a vegetarian meal too.
