1. Apples

Select a variety of sweet apples, such as Honeycrisp or Fuji, for the base of your apple butter. Peeled, cored, and sliced apples work best.

2. Coconut Sugar

Opt for coconut sugar as a paleo-friendly sweetener. It adds a caramel-like sweetness without the refined sugars.

3. Lemon Juice

Fresh lemon juice not only provides a burst of citrusy flavor but also helps prevent the apples from browning.

4. Cinnamon and Nutmeg

Infuse warm and aromatic spices with ground cinnamon and nutmeg. These spices complement the natural sweetness of the apples.

5. Vanilla Extract

Add a hint of depth and sweetness with paleo-friendly vanilla extract. Ensure it doesn’t contain any added sugars.

6. Sea Salt

A pinch of sea salt enhances the overall flavor profile, balancing the sweetness and adding a subtle savory note.


  1. Prepare the Apples: Peel, core, and slice the apples into even pieces. The uniform size ensures even cooking.
  2. Combine Ingredients in Slow Cooker: Place the sliced apples in a slow cooker. Add coconut sugar, lemon juice, ground cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla extract, and a pinch of sea salt. Stir to coat the apples evenly.
  3. Slow Cook to Perfection: Set the slow cooker on low and let the mixture cook for 6-8 hours. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking and ensure even cooking. The apples will break down and become soft and caramelized.
  4. Blend or Mash: Once the apples are thoroughly cooked, use an immersion blender to blend the mixture until smooth. Alternatively, mash the apples with a potato masher for a chunkier texture.
  5. Adjust Consistency and Flavor: If the apple butter is too thin, continue cooking with the lid off to allow excess moisture to evaporate. Adjust sweetness or spice levels to taste.
  6. Cool and Store: Allow the apple butter to cool before transferring it to sterilized jars. Store in the refrigerator for up to a few weeks or freeze for longer shelf life.
