This no sugar applesauce is an easy, healthy dessert.



  • 10 medium-size organic sweet red apples such as Fuji, Honeycrisp, or Pink Lady
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup raisins


  1. Cut apples into large chunks and place in a large crockpot.
  2. Stir in the water, cinnamon, and raisins.
  3. Cook on high for 5 hours (or on low for up to 12 hours). When the applesauce is done cooking, remove the lid and stir the applesauce well.
  4. Cool and store in the refrigerator. For optimal sweetness, eat cold.


You can freeze the applesauce in a tightly sealed container in the freezer for up to 2 months. Defrost it in the refrigerator and serve cold.
