Nothing really goes better than Mac & Cheese than applesauce. One of my kids won’t eat the store bought stuff, but loves my homemade version so much they made a bet with me with applesauce every week as their prize. They won.


  • 3lbs apples. I really like MacIntosh, but Gala or Fuji work in a pinch
  • 1/4 cup Earth Balance
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • Cinnamon to taste

Peel and seed the apples. Slice them into 1/8 inch thick pieces; thinner is ok, but don’t go thicker. Melt the Earth Balance in the pot and add in the brown sugar, apples and cinnamon. Cook over medium-high heat for 45 minutes to an hour. Serve warm on its own, with crepes, ice cream, granola or any dish you want!
