Crockpot Applesauce

Can you feel the weather getting cooler yet?  I am imagining sweaters and boots in my head because our temperatures still say its summer.  I’m also imagining fall food because, let’s be honest, its the best!  I made this crockpot applesauce last week and my whole house smelled like fall.  It was amazing!  And the applesauce is pretty good too!

Crockpot Applesauce recipe for a simple fall snack

I think the best part of this recipe (besides the heavenly smell) is how easy it is to make!  You toss a few apples in a crockpot pot and in a few hours you have applesauce.  Delicious, homemade, no sugar added applesauce!  It’s like fall in a crockpot.

This is also a great recipe to have kids help make.  They can wash, peel or chop the apples, depending on their age.  My kids were just taste testers this time around.  And it got their little seals of approval real quick!  They didn’t even realize that it was sugar free and good for them.  I kept those little secrets to myself!
