Instant Pot Applesauce {Easy | Quick | Kid Friendly}

One of the easiest recipes to ever make is Instant Pot Applesauce! I was expecting it to taste exactly like the organic applesauce that we get at the store, but surprisingly it was different. Not bad different, but you can tell it’s homemade versus what you buy in the store.

In this recipe, you can make it without the skins, but I keep the skins on to keep more nutrients and fiber into the applesauce. This fiber is essential to colon health which can benefit as a cancer preventative This is totally a preference based on texture 🙂 Apples are a good source of antioxidants

I just simply use my apple corer gadget to core the apple and slice it. And then you just throw it in the Instant Pot. It’s seriously so simple! I highly suggest using a vast variety of apples for a flavor burst. Green apples add a tartness which I love. Since apples were listed as a Dirty Dozen fruit, I cannot stress buying organic enough!

Instant Pot Applesauce

Prep Time5 minutes
Cook Time5 minutes
Total Time10 minutes
Servings: 2 Cups


  • 3/4 Cups Water
  • 4 Large Apples Gala, Cored, *Peeled Optional
  • 2 Cinnamon Sticks
  • Pinch Cloves Ground
  • 1 Tbs Maple Syrup


  • Put the water, cored apples, and cinnamon sticks into the Instant Pot (IP)
  • Choose manual time on the IP, set it for five minutes. Make sure the top is pointed to sealed.
  • Once the IP is done, don't vent the IP. Let it naturally depressurize.
  • Once it's done depressurizing and you can open it, throw away the cinnamon sticks. Add in the pinch of cloves and maple syrup.
  • Mix with an immersion blender or just a hand held mixer. Mix until it's all mashed up. I like to leave mine a little chunky.
  • Keep in the fridge for a week - enjoy!


*You can peel the apples if you want to make it a completely smooth texture, but I like leaving the skins on for those nutrients and fiber inside the skin.
