Homeade Crockpot Applesauce

#1 reason you should make this: It’s HOT out and you don’t want to turn on that oven to make a special treat, am I right? PLUS, this treat is actually (somewhat anyways) healthy, so you’ll feel good about eating it and serving it to the kiddos.

#2 reason to make this: It’s almost FALL, and this will surely get you in the mood for the fall season. Have I mentioned lately that this is my FAVE season?

Ever wonder what to do with those apples that haven’t yet gone bad, but are not as crisp as they should be?
Make applesauce!
Here’s my recipe:
*about 7 of any type of apples, peeled and chopped (a mix of green and red apples works very well)
*approx 1/2 cup of orange juice
*cinnamon sprinkled to taste
*about 1/3 cup of brown sugar/sugar substitute/agave nectar (optional)
Cook in a crock pot on high until the mixture is boiling. You can then blend the applesauce with a hand mixer/food processor if you like a thin type applesauce, or feel free to leave the apples chopped.
Great served warm,  your house will smell AMAZING! Perfect for Fall- or a really hot summertime day 🙂

Enjoy!
