slow cooker applesauce and a lovely fall day

Today we made some homemade slow cooker apple sauce and we felt all sorts of Fall. My mama had made this before and I couldn’t believe how easy it was. If you ever have lots of apples to use up, etc, this is SO simple and SO good. Also sugar free!

All I did was cut up maybe ten apples or so. I peeled them but you could even leave the skin on if you want this to be even more quick. Dice apples into big chunks, throw in half a cup of water, and sprinkle top with cinnamon and nutmeg. Turn cooker on high and let those babies soften up for a couple hours!

Once soft, grab a whisk and stir it up to a consistency that you enjoy. I like mine a little more chunky so I don’t do a whole lot of stirring. If you are a smooth apple sauce kinda gal, you could even throw this all into a blender.

And that is literally it! Enjoy it warm right away, throw it in the fridge and save it for later, put some ice cream or whipped cream on top to satisfy that late night sweet tooth if you know what I’m sayin’.

Happy Fall!

What you’ll need:

  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup sugar free peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup OR honey
  • dash of vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 mini muffin tray

Mix coconut oil, peanut butter, and maple syrup together. Throw in microwave for 30 or so to get them all blended together nice and good. Take out of microwave and add vanilla and cocoa powder. Mix until blended! All that’s left is pouring into your tray! Place tray in your freezer until chocolates are solid- normally only about 10/15 min. That’s it! Super easy! Enjoy!
