I LOVE apple pie, but I rarely have the time to sit down and bake one from scratch. So when I found myself with an abundance of apples recently, I decided that’d I’d make something new…applesauce!

This homemade applesauce really fulfills my apple pie cravings and is a whole lot healthier! It’s not only healthy and delicious but also SO simple to make because it only has 2 ingredients! In less than 30 minutes, I was able to make something my whole family loved and my house smelled amazing, like a crisp fall day.
