Easy Crockpot Apple Sauce (Sugar-free!)

apple sauce 1apple 2Since I am always baking and many vegan recipes use apple sauce, I am forever buying apple sauce at the supermarket.  My issue with commercial apple sauce though, is that many of them contain sugar and preservatives which are so unnecessary!  So I attempted making apple sauce in my slow cooker and I was so impressed!  Just 3 ingredients and I had the most delicious – and more than sweet enough – apple sauce!  It is so good that I have been eating a small bowl of it every night for dessert:)

Ingredients

  • Apples, peeled and cored (I used golden delicious but use what you like)
  • water
  • cinnamon sticks or ground powder

Instructions

Roughly chop apples.  Put just enough boiling water into your slow cooker to cover the bottom of it (about 3/4-1 cup).  Add apples and cinnamon to taste.  Cook on low until apples are completely soft.  (Mine took about 6 hours)  Remove cinnamon sticks if you have used them.  Pour contents into a food processor and process until you have a smooth apple sauce.  Add sweetener to taste.  I didn’t need to add any as my apples were deliciously sweet.

Pour into a glass jar once cooled and store in the fridge for 3-5 days.

Have fun!
