Although I’m still on the hunt for a nearby apple orchard to spend a morning picking fresh apples, I do love buying them in bulk from Costco so I can whip up a batch of homemade applesauce. The best part about this incredibly easy recipe is that it only involves 2 ingredients and is a really delicious, healthy snack morning, noon or night.

I often find when browsing the grocery store for applesauce that upon looking at the label, they’ve usually got some additive to either (a) sweeten the recipe or (b) give it a longer shelf life. There truly is nothing tastier than a fresh batch of applesauce made right in your own kitchen. With just a dash or two of cinnamon, I promise you won’t be going back to store-bought versions any time soon.

Homemade Cinnamon Applesauce


  • 3 Fuji Apples
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon


  1. Put a 1/2 inch amount of water in a large pot.
  2. Using a steamer basket, wash the apples and place them in the basket inside the pot.
  3. Set to medium-high heat and cover with a lid.
  4. Steam for 6-8 minutes until apples are tender.
  5. Place the apples on a cutting board and remove the core and skin. *An apple corer works best for this.
  6. Slice apples into large chunks and place in food processor or blender. *I used a Vitamix.
  7. Add 1 tsp of cinnamon.
  8. Pulse on high for 10-15 seconds.
  9. Spoon into glass storage containers. Once cool, cover and store in refrigerator.
