I’m so excited to be bringing you what I call my “Healthier” Crockpot Applesauce! When Mark and I went apple picking a few weeks ago, I knew I’d need to make a few different apple recipes, and applesauce was one of them! I found an unhealthy applesauce recipe that was full of sugar, but I wanted to lighten up the sugar a little bit and came up with a super duper yummy applesauce!
To make this Healthier Crockpot Applesauce, start by peeling all of your apples. I tested this in a mini crockpot so I used 7 different sized apples. They were different sized because at an apple orchard.. you get what you pick! If you’re using a normal sized crockpot, you could peel about 20! It may seem like a lot, but remember they all shrink and mush down.
Slice and cut your apples into bite sized chunks, and add them to a bowl or to the crockpot. (I found it was easier to mix all the ingredients together in a bigger bowl and then pouring it into the crockpot)
I then added 2 tablespoons of brown sugar.
1/4 cup of truvia
1 tablespoon of cinnamon
1/2 cup of water
Combine them all together in a bowl or directly in the crockpot.
Let it sit on high for about 3 hours (small crockpot) or up to 8 hours for a big crockpot. Lessoned learned: Don’t let it sit on warm overnight because it doesn’t hold together well like when you make it with real sugar.
- 7-8 apples

- 1/4 c. Truvia
