This crockpot apple butter recipe by Michelle Medlin on YouTube shows how to make a smooth and spiced spread that can go on toast or on top of pancakes in the morning. If you have a lot of apples that you haven’t gotten to and they’re ripe, this would be a great way to use them without having them go to waste. It’s a healthy recipe that’s made with fresh apples and spices. This recipe doesn’t require many ingredients, and it would make the house smell like warm cinnamon apples. I love crockpot recipes because it slows cooks for hours that gives the essence of the season. Also, this is a gluten-free, vegan, and dairy-free recipe, which the name of the recipe can sound misleading, but it’s not made with any dairy components.



  • 6 pounds of apples
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • a pinch or 2 of ground cloves


First, peel, core, and slice all of the apples. Placed prepared apples in the slow cooker with remaining spices and ingredients. Toss the apples to fully incorporate everything together.

Next, place the lid over the crockpot and cook on low for 4-6 hours or until apples are really soft. When the apples are soft, turn off the crockpot and use a blender, food processor, or immersion blender to puree the apples.

Overall, I love apple butter, and I usually this is an easy process to make because the crockpot does all of the cooking. Apple butter reminds me of the Fall season, but this can go throughout the holidays. Plus, you can make a lot and store them in an airtight mason jar.
