We went apple picking a couple weeks ago and picked so many apples, I had to think of something to do with them all that didn’t involve tons of sugar. We will definitely be making apple crisp and apple pie too!

I wanted to use a large amount of the apples so I came up with this applesauce recipe that I could also freeze to use later on! It’s super fast to make and tastes delicious! Dominic loves applesauce for a snack so now I won’t have to buy it for a while. I also love knowing all the ingredients!

I’m so excited to share this recipe with you along with several other bloggers who are sharing tons of yummy recipes today! A big THANK YOU to Krista, The Happy Housie, for hosting this fun hop! Be sure to check out the recipes linked at the end of my post! I can’t wait to try some!

Ingredients for applesauce


  • 12 Apples of your choice, peeled and sliced

  • 1 1/4 cup water

  • 1 lemon zested and juiced

  • 2 tbs ground cinnamon

Immersion blender in the applesauce


  1. Peel and slice all the apples (this is what takes the longest)

    • You don’t have to peel the apples if you want more texture

  2. Add all the apples, water, lemon zest and juice, and cinnamon to a large stock pot

  3. Cook on medium low for about 30 minutes until all the apples have softened

  4. Use an immersion blender, blender, or food processor to break down the apples even further until desired thickness

  5. Enjoy!

Applesauce in the pot

You can either enjoy the applesauce warm or cold! Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Freeze half if you would like!

This is such a yummy treat and I love the cinnamon flavoring! You could adjust the cinnamon amount, if you aren’t a big cinnamon fan!

I hope you enjoy this sugar free applesauce, it’s perfect for this time of year!
