6 cups (about 6 medium) peeled and sliced Granny Smith apples

2 tbsp. cornstarch

2 tbsp. Truvia spoonable calorie-free sweetener (or another natural brand that’s about twice as sweet as sugar)

2 tsp. vanilla extract

1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon

2 tbsp. light whipped butter or light buttery spread

Optional topping: natural light whipped topping


Place apples in a slow cooker sprayed with nonstick spray.

In a medium bowl, combine cornstarch with 1/2 cup water. Whisk to dissolve. Add sweetener, vanilla extract, cinnamon, salt, and nutmeg. Whisk well.

Pour cornstarch mixture over apples, and stir to coat.

In a medium-large bowl, combine cake mix, applesauce, and butter. Stir until thickened and uniform. Spoon mixture over apples to evenly cover.

Cover and cook on high for 2 hours or on low for 4 hours, until apples have softened and topping is golden brown and cooked through.
