Slow Cooker Cinnamon Applesauce Recipe
This slow cooker Cinnamon Applesauce recipe makes for a great snack! It’s easy to make, high in fiber and loved by all!
- 10 large apples, peeled, cored and chopped into chunks

- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- ½ cup coconut sugar
- Add all ingredients to slow cooker and cook on low for 6-8 hours.
- When done cooking, mix all ingredients and mash all clumps of apple until desired consistency is achieved.
What is your opinion of ‘baking’ apples in the microwave? It’s quick and the cored apples with a bit of honey and chopped walnuts added to the core, and then sprinkled with cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice makes delicious baked apples in just a few minutes. I do add some apple juice or even water for moisture.
What kind of apples do you use? BTW I never use any kind of sugar in my applesauce and my family loves it.
I made this wonderful applesauce and it is delicious beyond belief, at least for me it is. The only thing that I did different was to leave out the sugar. The cinnamon was enough to bring the sweetness out for me without adding the sugar. I also left a few lumps of apples which were delightful to my palate. Next time, I was thinking about adding some other fruit to it like pear, apricots, possibly cherries so it might turn out like a compote for a healthy desert.
Great idea! Let us know how it turns out!
Are crock pots safe to use? I was wondering if there might be lead in the glaze.
Depends on the crockpot. I’d find out what the inside is coated with before purchasing
We have special cooking apples here in England called Bramleys. They are quite tart but delicious
I never put any form of sugar in my applesauce. I just cook down the apples with some water and that’s it. The apples are sweet enough on their own.
My sentiments exactly. No sugar needed.
What is your opinion on using honey in this recipe instead of coconut sugar..Also, how do you feel about canning this recipe?
I think both could be great!
Is there any way east way to preserve large batches of this apple sauce?
Freezing it would be your best option.
Been swelling a lot in my hand and finger and my angles. Storeing body fluids .what Can I do?
There are many different reasons your body could be doing this but here are a few things you could try:
Drinking dandelion root tea before bed
Soaking in epsom salt
Taking 400mg of magnesium daily
Make sure you’re staying hydrated
Increase your potassium levels so that your body can flush out toxins and fluids (drinking coconut water is a great option here)
Go for a swim to get things in your body moving and loose

My wife uses “sweet n Low” in her applesauce. Also in all the pies she makes.
Check out this article on why I don’t recommend consuming sweet n low: https://draxe.com/nutrition/artificial-sweeteners/
Because I am a diabetic, I cannot have coconut sugar. Can I substitute anything else for it?
I would use stevia. Start with a few drops and add more to taste
I agree stevia is a great alternative. Some people, including myself, think it has a strange taste to it though. (similar to artificial sweeteners) I think stevia in the whole leaf form is best, and safest. Safest because it does not go through the same processing as the liquid or powder forms. Some of the chemicals used in these processes sound… well, like chemicals. The same is true of processed monk fruit.
