I like to use apple sauce as a natural sweetener in a fair amount of my baked goods. Apples add a lot of sweet flavor and moisture without having to used processed sugars.
It is really easy to make your own applesauce and it makes your house smell really good while making it. 🙂
7 Apples (I like honeycrisp, fuji, or harralson), peeled and cored and chopped
1/2 tbsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 drop Young Living lemon essential oil (or 1 tsp fresh squeezed lemon juice)
- Place all ingredients in a crock pot, set on low, and cook until soft. You won’t need to mash it, the apples will turn soft while cooking.
