Maple Cinnamon Applesauce Recipe 

Natural, rustic applesauce cooked in under 20 minutes. Try this chunky applesauce on oatmeal or pancakes for breakfast, yoghurt and granola for a snack, or ice cream for dessert. It tastes like apple pie filling.

– 3 Gala apples (or another variety of sweet red apple) – 3 Granny Smith or pippin apple – ¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons real maple syrup* – 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon – 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice (or more to taste) – dash of sea salt


Step 1


Peel, core, and cut apples into 2-inch pieces. Add apple chunks, maple syrup, cinnamon, and lemon juice to a heavy, nonreactive Dutch oven or saucepan over medium heat.

Step 2

Cover and simmer for 12 minutes to soften apples. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally to break up larger chunks, until the apples are soft but still have texture (5–10 minutes).

Step 3

Turn off heat and add maple syrup, cinnamon, or lemon juice to taste. Serve warm or chilled; refrigerate after cooling to room temperature.
