Skinny Crock Pot Applesauce

Despite the quantity of baking posts on my blog, I’m trying to reduce the amount of sugar in my diet this year.  I have seen several recipes for crock pot applesauce on the web, but they all call for an addition of brown sugar.  I find that honeycrisp apples are so deliciously sweet on their own that using them then reduces, if not removes, the need for sugar.  Here’s my take on a skinnier version of crock pot applesauce…a fantastic dessert!

Skinny Crock Pot Applesauce


8-9 Honeycrisp apples (or other sweet apple)

2 Tbsp Cinnamon


1. Peel and core the apples, then chop into large chunks

2. Place all apples in the crock pot and stir in the cinnamon

3. Cook for 4 hours on high, check after 2 hours for taste and add more cinnamon (or brown sugar if preferred)

4. Let cool a bit then purée the apples for a smooth applesauce, or lightly mush for chunkier sauce.  I like the chunkier version.
