Choose apples that are in season for the best flavor, and feel free to mix up the types of apples for unique combinations. Add in a little agave if you have apples that might not be as flavorful, on-season, or if the apples are more tart, like Granny Smith green apples. More often than not, though, the apples are so sweet on their own that you don’t need any additional sweeteners!


4 large Golden Delicious Apples, peeled, cored, and chopped
4 large Honeycrisp apples, peeled, cored and chopped
1 cup Water
1 TBS fresh Lemon Juice
1 TBS agave, optional
½ tsp ground Cinnamon

Peel and core apples. These don’t have to be perfect and can be sliced or chopped.

Add water, lemon juice, and cinnamon to Instant Pot and stir to combine. Add apples and toss to mix together. If you like a sweeter applesauce, add in the agave or sweetener of choice. Depending on which type of apple you have, you will probably not need anything else.

Secure lid and cook on Manual High pressure for 8 minutes.

Do a controlled quick release or allow the pressure to naturally release.

Mash the apple mixture a few times with a potato masher or fork. You can also make it smoother by allowing it to cool slightly and use an immersion blender or pour into a regular blender. Please use caution with the immersion blender as the liquid is hot and can splash.

Transfer contents to a bowl and allow to cool completely. Add in more cinnamon to taste.

Enjoy warm or cold! Put on top of dairy-free yogurt, mix with granola, or eat by the spoonfuls with your hungry toddler. Store in the fridge for about a week, if it doesn’t get eaten first!
