Aside from being packed with nourishment (one medium apple dishes out nearly 20 percent of your daily fiber needs), apples are extremely versatile. You can savor them solo, pair them with peanut butter, bake them, dehydrate them or toss them in salads or stir-fries.

But perhaps one of the tastiest ways to enjoy apples is to transform them into a homemade applesauce using your slow cooker. Check out this super simple, no sugar-added applesauce recipe that’s as easy as (apple) pie!

To make this Slow Cooker Applesauce recipe, you can use any type of red apple that you enjoy. However, the sweeter the apple is, the sweeter the applesauce will be. Gala, McIntosh or Honeycrisp are our favorite apple options!
