I often forget how easy it is to just throw everything in a slow cooker and 6-8 hours later your meal is ready!  This recipe is perfect for overnight. When you wake up, breakfast is ready AND the house smells amazing.

If you have an overabundance of apples, this is the perfect way to transform them into a easy and homemade dish.  The cider in this recipe makes the applesauce tangy and flavorful and there is about half the amount of sugar in this recipe than in others’ which I prefer.  

This Slow Cooker Applesauce Recipe Is:

  • Hearty
  • Warming

Overnight Applesauce in the Crock Pot

I left this cooking overnight on the kitchen counter, and the sweet cinnamon-y smell was so nice in the morning.  I diced the apples before cooking, so after they had cooked they were creamy and chunky.  You can definitely keep the applesauce chunky if  you like it, but since I left the peels on I pureed mine.

This is my new favorite way to use up extra apples.  We planted a few apple trees in our front yard (for the bees!) and we’ve started getting apples this year. Perfect for this tasty slow cooker applesauce. It was a huge hit with the husband too, and we have been loving having this treat for breakfast.
