Slow Cooker Applesauce

Time for some dessert don't you think? Although I wouldn't serve it after the Roast with the Apple Ginger Gravy because that's a little redundant....

Mmmmm Mmmmmm applesauce. And fresh, warm applesauce? It's doesn't get much better than that. Of course my slow cooker does it again with this tasty dish that can be used as a healthy snack, side dish or dessert! This is great on top of the Protein Packed Pancakes.


6-8 apples (any apple works fine, but use more sweetener for tart apples and less for naturally sweet apples)
Juice from 1/2 lemon
2 Tablespoons agave nectar (what we use for sweetener) *adjust depending on the apples you used
2 Tablespoons cinnamon... or more because cinnamon is tasty and good for you :)
3/4 cup water


Wash, core and slice apples. You can peel if you want (especially if you want to leave it chunky), but the skins are packed with nutrients. Mix the other ingredients and pour over the apples. Cook on low for 6-8 hours.

Stir and enjoy as is for chunky applesauce or put it through a blender or food processor for smooth applesauce.
