Incredibly Easy Crock Pot Cinnamon Apples {Freezer Meal}

Apples, brown sugar, and cinnamon make for the perfect crock pot snack!

I came home with a bag of peeled and chopped up apples from Apple Butter Weekend and was trying to figure out what to do with them. After poking around on a few recipes I figured I could cook them up in the crock pot and make a yummy side dish or snack.

It was incredibly easy.

Apples, brown sugar, and cinnamon make for the perfect crock pot snack!

I just dumped in the apples, brown sugar and cinnamon and walked away while my crock pot did the work. After a few hours I let them cool off and mushed them up into an apple sauce consistency.

    How long will this stay fresh stored in the fridge?

    I didn’t add enough apples so mine was a little watery, but I used the immersion blender and loaded up some empty baby food jars to freeze for the baby. I wanted to keep some jars in the fridge as individual snacks for the older ones.

      Great idea, Lauren! I bet it’ll be fine for several days, but you might want to freeze it after that.
