Falalala fall recipes are in full swing here at Fit Foodie Finds. We were at the apple orchard last weekend, and came home with the biggest bag of McIntosh apples. We’ll save some for snacks throughout the week, and made an apple crisp right when we got home, but still had enough to whip up a batch of this delicious crockpot applesauce. SO EASY. SO DELICIOUS. And if you just went to the apple orchard, too, you probably already have all the ingredients on hand at home.

I also can’t get enough of the color of this applesauce. We were afraid it was going to come out a little too brown with the cinnamon, but it cooked down to this perfect dark fall color. And made the whole house smell like the holidays. Let’s get into how we made this cinnamon crockpot applesauce.

How To Make Crockpot Applesauce

First, peel and then core your apples, making sure to remove all the seeds. Place all your apples + water + honey + cinnamon in the crockpot. The apples will steam themselves and bake down in the crockpot over 4 hours. And the best part? You won’t even need to food process the cooked apples to make the applesauce itself at the end. Just stir through with a fork, and you’re good to go!

We also tested this with a small batch – using only 5 apples, which yielded about 2 cups of applesauce. The recipe here calls for 10 large apples, but depending on the size of your crockpot, and how many apples you have on hand, you could definitely cut this recipe in half, or double or triple it.
