  • 4 pounds of apples (about 7 to 10 apples, depending on the size), peeled, cored, and quartered (use apple varieties that are good for cooking such as Granny Smith, Braeburn, Fuji, or Golden Delicious)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup Truvía® Natural Sweetener
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


1. Peel, core and quarter apples.

2. In a large saucepan combine apples, water, cinnamon and Truvía® Natural Sweetener.

3. Bring to a boil on high heat, cover and reduce heat to a low simmer for 25-35 minutes or until the apples are completely tender and cooked through.

4. Remove the pot from the heat.

5. Use a potato masher to mash the cooked apples in the pot to make a chunky applesauce. For a smoother applesauce, purée them in a blender. (Do small batches and do not fill the blender bowl more than halfway.)
