An easy 3-ingredient crock pot applesauce with no added sugar.
Here's another easy slow cooker recipe for fall. The apples and cinnamon cook all day, filling the house with the aroma of apple pie. It's a warm and cozy treat for crisp autumn days.
The key to this recipe is picking apples that are sweet enough that you don't need to add any sugar. My local farm market had several varieties to choose from. For this batch I used an early variety called Paula Red, but you can use any apple recommended for sauce.
The recipe couldn't be simpler — coconut oil, apples, and a cinnamon stick. I used a potato masher for a slightly chunky applesauce. If you like your applesauce smooth, you can puree it with an immersion blender.
