Cinnamon Slow-Cooker Applesauce

Healthy dessert recipe realhealthyrecipes.com

Here’s a cinnamon-y treat for your sweet tooth.

There really is no comparison between homemade and store bought applesauce. You can taste the vibrancy of fresh apples and layers of flavor in homemade.

And when you have a slow cooker, making applesauce is incredibly simple. All you do is chop the apples and throw the ingredients into the slow cooker for a couple of hours. Then a few strokes of a hand blender and your delicious homemade treat is ready.

The kids love to have this as dessert, and with only wholesome ingredients I’m happy to give it to them.
