This two ingredient slow cooker applesauce makes a healthy snack or sweet topper for oatmeal or yogurt.
This has to be the easiest, most versatile dish I’ve ever made via the slow cooker. You simply combine apples with cinnamon and turn on the slow cooker. I actually wanted to make this with pears but the Gala apples were pretty and on sale the day I went to the supermarket.
You can enjoy it just as is, with yogurt or ice cream…
or stirred into a bowl of oatmeal
Now you may look at the recipe and think I accidentally left out the sugar. Nope. When apples are in season, the flavor will be at peak. So there’s no need for sugar. You may be surprised at how the apples cook down to a sweet, aromatic and versatile applesauce. Gala, Jonagold or Cameo are a few sweet apple varieties to try.
