By far, one of the easiest and coziest homemade recipes for Fall! I grabbed a bunch of apples from my mom’s apple trees the other week and made a fresh batch of this cinnamon applesauce and had to share 🙂 Now, go make before apple season is over! It’s completely added sugar free (the apples & cinnamon are sweet enough!), made with just four ingredients and makes for a great snack for the week ahead or gift to someone you love.
Quick note– I prefer to leave about half or a quarter of the skins on for added fiber / nutrients so I don’t peel all of them. Also you can make it as chunky or smooth as you want by mashing up more or less. Can’t wait to hear what you think! xx
Homemade Cinnamon Applesauce
A seasonal favorite! Plus, there's no added sugar, will make your house smell amazing and tastes delicious 🙂
- 8-10 small to medium apples
- Juice of 1 lemon
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp cloves
Peel all apples and dice into cubes, removing the core (I like keeping the skin on about half of them and peeling the rest).
Add to a large pot with lemon, water and spices. Turn heat on medium, cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and let cook for 20-40 minutes.
Once apples are soft, use a potato masher or an immersion blender to mash the apples. I prefer it a bit chunky so I won’t go crazy on the mashing.
Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week!
