So I made it home safe and sound from Boston. It’s always hard going back to real life once you have been away from work for a while. Don’t you agree? Although I do like being back in my own bed and kitchen. There are just certain tools that are never stocked in vacation homes. Like immersion blenders.. and food processors… and tupperware! What is with that? What do other people store their food in? I don’t understand! I always end up buying tupperware for the places I rent. If I am thinking ahead I usually throw some in my suitcase to bring with me (yes I am that girl) but I have to admit that I totally forgot this time.
Today I am sharing my trusty Cinnamon Spiced Applesauce recipe. I make this stuff all the time, and it is super easy! I almost feel bad even calling this one a recipe. It only has 4 ingredients and takes very little effort to make. But I use this applesauce recipe in so many other dishes (like my Paleo Harvest Bread with Apple Coconut Icing) that I decided you might like to have this one in your recipe box too. Plus it makes a great dessert or snack even on its own. I also love adding a little coconut butter to this for a quick and delicious treat. Coconut butter pretty much makes everything taste better don’t you think?
Well everyone I hope you have a good week! As always I would be thrilled if you visited me on Pinterest, Instagram and Facebook! And please feel free to contact me with any questions! I love hearing from you!
Cinnamon Spiced Applesauce
(Paleo, SCD, GAPS)
Place a large pot on the stove on medium heat
Add a very small amount of water to the pot (just enough to cover the bottom of your pot)
Add the remaining ingredients to the pot
Bring to a boil and let simmer for 30-40 minutes, until apples are soft and break apart easily
Use your immersion blender and blend the ingredients until smooth
Serve and enjoy!
NOTE: This makes a large batch of apple sauce, so I usually freeze half of it for a later date
