slow cooker tuesday – homemade applesauce

I love trying to find new things to snack on that are healthy and low in fat and calories. I also like to find recipes that are versatile so you can tweak them, and make them your own. Today I am bringing homemade applesauce to the table. Since it is Tuesday, it would not be right if it was not made in the slow cooker!

Cinnamon Applesauce
The Best of Prevention Slow Cooker Recipes
7 apples (try McIntosh), peeled, cored, and chopped
2 tsp ground cinnamon
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup brown sugar
Place apples in 4-qt or larger slow cooker and sprinkle with cinnamon. Add water. Cover. Cook on low 2 to 4 hours, or until apples become mushy. Stir in brown sugar and mix well.

Servings: 6. Per serving: 143 cal, 0 g pro, 38 g carb, 2 g fiber, 0 g fat, 0 g sat fat, 0 mg chol, 8 mg sodium

Play around with different spice combinations. Try some nutmeg and clove, or if you want to get extreme even some cayenne pepper. Different kinds of apples will bring different flavors. Granny Smith apples make a great applesauce too!

I hope you enjoy this healthy, tasty treat!

Live. Life. Beautifully.
