Crockpot Cinnamon Applesauce Recipe
Crockpot Cinnamon Applesauce – homemade applesauce is super easy to make in your slow cooker, and only requires four simple ingredients! This is the perfect snack or treat, and tastes amazing when it’s warm!
Today’s recipe is coming to you by request of my five year old, thanks to all of the fun apple activities she’s been doing the past couple of weeks in Kindergarten.
Last week her class made applesauce, and she loved it so much she came home begging for us to do the same. So this weekend, that’s just what we did!
It’s been a long time since I’ve made homemade applesauce, and after making it this past Saturday, I can’t believe I’ve waited so long make it again!
In fact, the last time I remember making crockpot applesauce was when I was teaching my own kinder class about six years ago!
I’m pretty sure I’ve made it at some point since then, but let me tell you this; my house smelled amazing on Saturday, and eating a bowl of this yummy cinnamon-y apple goodness was such a treat!
I’m definitely going to be making this crockpot cinnamon applesauce a lot more often now!
This recipe is crazy easy, too. You just stir everything together and then let the magic happen.
When it’s all done cooking, I just stir mine up with a wire whisk or spoon. The apples fall apart easily and you’re left with a crockpot full of sweet and delicious homemade applesauce!
Oh, and this tastes AMAZING warm! I highly recommend eating it that way (though not steaming hot), but you can also let it cool and store in the refrigerator for later.
This crockpot applesauce makes about 6 servings around 1/2 cup each, which is perfect for our family to eat over a few days time. You can definitely double this recipe if you’d like to make more applesauce, though!

Crockpot Cinnamon Applesauce Recipe
- 3 pounds apples, peeled, cored and sliced, (about 6 medium apples/I use Gala)
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 cup water
- Place the peeled, sliced apples into the bowl of your crockpot. Sprinkle the sugar and cinnamon over the apples and mix well. Pour the water into the crockpot and place the lid on top. Cook over high heat for four hours.
- When cooking time is up, remove the lid and mix the apples using a wire whisk, stirring until smooth, or until desired consistency is reached. This applesauce tastes delicious warm!
- To store, allow the applesauce to cool completely then place in a sealed container in the fridge. Enjoy!
We made this exactly as directed and it was delicious. It was not overly sweet, and the kitchen smelled amazing.
I love this recipe. I do like to add an infuser with mulling spice and cook for longer lower temp.
absolutely phenomenal! easy to do and great results! beats the heck out of store bought
Tastes amazing!! I doubled the batch cuz I had so many apples. Now I would love to use this applesauce to make applesauce muffins. So going to give it a try.
Did it take longer to cook when doubled?
I ended up only cooking my apples for about 3 hours but they were still very tender. I don’t think you will need to double your time if you do multiple batches of apples at a time in your crockpot on high.
It is always great, I have been making for 3 years now and it is always so good!!!!
It’s in the crockpot now! Super easy & smells so good!!
Thank you for the recipe! Its been a while since i made it in the crockpot. I usually make my applesauce with cinnamon red hot candies and can it. It’s quite wonderful.
This looks great! What size slow cooker did you use?
Hi Patti, it’s a 6 quart.
How long is it good for after it’s done?
