For the crock pot applesauce:

  • 8 apples Fuji, Gala or your favorite
  • ½ cup (118ml) water
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon (13g) sugar


  • Peel, core and slice the apples. Note: you CAN leave the peels on if you want.
  • Place apples in a crock pot. Mix water, cinnamon, and sugar in a measuring cup and pour over apples. Cook on LOW for 6-8 hours, until the apples are translucent. Mash with a potato masher or place in a blender or food processor to blend with no lumps.
  • Applesauce can be stored in a tupperware in the refrigerator for several days, or frozen for future use.



  • Depending on how chunky you want your applesauce, you can either mash the soft apples with a potato masher for chunky applesauce or use a blender or hand blender for smooth!
  • Homemade cinnamon applesauce is good because you get to control the sugar. You’ll notice this recipe only has 1 tablespoon of sugar! I don’t add a ton because the apples are so sweet. However, you can add more sugar if you want or you can make crockpot applesauce with brown sugar.
