Homemade Applesauce

Believe it or not, this apple sauce has no refined-white sugar. I used 2 Honeycrisp apples and 2 Buckeye Gala’s which are both naturally sweeter. Then I used Organic Coconut Sugar [naturally less-sweet than white refined sugar…] to balance out the sweetness of my apples. The result was awesome!

All you need:

-3/4 c. water
-4 apples
-1/4 c. coconut sugar
-1/2 tsp. cinnamon

First, I peeled all my apples. I then put the water, sugar, and cinnamon in a sauce pan on the stove over low heat. While the water was warming up, I cored each apple and cut them into 1/2 inch pieces. Place all of your apples into the sauce pan and bump up that heat to medium-high. Let all the apples simmer in cinnamon goodness for 15-20 minutes, until apples are soft. When the apples are done cooking they will look a little brown, this is mostly due to the brown coconut sugar.

This recipe only makes around 3-4 cups so I was able to throw it in my nutribullet, instead of mashing it by hand.

It can only handle a few pluses before the apples become too thick for it to blend. For me. I only needed a few pulses for it to be the texture I wanted.

Chill in the fridge for an hour, at least. Enjoy!
