No Peeling Applesauce
I know it's not apple season yet, but for some reason I bought a huge box of apples thinking I can go through them, but I realized that apples are not as easy to eat as bananas. I hate to let food go to waste and since I'd rather make my own apple sauce than buy it packaged with all the other nasty stuff. No thanks.
I hate to let food go to waste and apple sauce is the number one recipe that, well, uses apples. Plus, I'd rather make my own applesauce than buy it packaged with all the preservatives, sugar, plus they mostly use peeled apples. So no thanks.
Honestly, the hardest part of this recipe is cutting your apples. The best part? Your house will smell AMAZING!
It's tangy yet cozy. Warm, sweet, and spicy. I know that this recipe yields for a lot of apple sauce, but before you start worrying about what you'd do with it all, let me give you some ideas
As my friend has discovered, they make a great dip for Bliss Balls!
mix with fruits and/or granola.
Oatmeal, overnight oats, or just mix with dried oats.
Spread on toast, pancakes, and waffles.
Sub for oil in recipes to make fully plan-based baked goods. Apple bread recipe coming soon.
Just eat it by itself!

- cinnamon to taste and/or cinnamon stick
- pinch of ground cardamom and ginger
- Cut the apples and add them to a large saucepan
