I know that you’ve been looking for slow cooker recipes. Stalking your friend’s Facebook and Pinterest feed, hoping that they post something good. There’s just something about fall and winter season that makes people want to sleep the day away. Unfortunately for you, most ope the recipes she posts are full of fat and laden with sugar. Well, I’ve cooked up the perfect healthy slower cooker apple sauce recipe. It’s tasty, sugar free and oh so good. As a matter of fact, you won’t even believe that this five ingredient slow cooker recipe is sugar free.

That’s because I used the sweetest and tastiest fuji and gala apples for the job. I previously tried using a combination of gala and golden delicious apples but it just didn’t give me the sweetness I was looking for. Apples are on of healthiest fall food you can eat. So do yourself a favor and use it in more recipes.

I cooked these apples on the high setting of my slow cooker for about 7 hours. The only thing wasted in this homemade apple sauce recipe were seeds and stems. If you throw away the skins of the apples to make this recipe, you’re throwing away time, money and lots of nutrition. That’s because the skins of the apples pack a tone of nutrition. So make sure you buy organic apples for this recipe and nix the bad stuff.

And just how do I recommend you eat this slow cooked apple sauce. This apple sauce tastes just fine by itself. You can also try stirring into your morning cereal, using it as an accompaniment for potato pancakes or your favorite coconut yogurt as a filling snack.

Oh and boy oh boy let me tell you something, these apples smell so good when they’re cooking down. It’s just the kind of slower cooker healthy recipe you want.
