Slow Cooker Apple Butter - Bays English Muffins

Disclosure: This is sponsored post in collaboration with Bays English Muffins and REACHORB. I was compensated for this experience; all opinions are my own.


When I think about this time of the year I think of all the traditions and great food that comes with the season.  Now, I would be lying if I said that those traditions don't take over some of the quality time we should be enjoying with our kids.  For that reason Bays English Muffins have become my go to item for all kinds of great recipe creations this holiday season.  Not only because they are delicious but also because they are the perfect item for a stress free meal.  Hey, we could all use a little less stress right?  Less stress in my daily life means more time for that quality time as a family.

Do you have that special breakfast place that you crave every once in a while?  I do and the reason?  Apple butter on an English Muffin!!  YES!  Apple butter!!  So, after years of running to my favorite breakfast place for my apple butter I decided to try my hand at making my own.  I knew that if I achieved this delicious recipe, my Bays English Muffins would be even better for the holiday breakfasts with my family.

I love Bays English Muffins, especially the original variety.  This original English Muffin is so versatile.  I use them for my morning breakfast, avocado "toast" for lunch, mini pizzas for dinner and even cinnamon sugar strips for dessert.  They are always fresh and delicious and I especially love the texture of the Bays English Muffins, my apple butter is soaked in and creates the perfect sweet breakfast treat.

  9. This does look very delicious as a recipe. I have made apple butter before, but not in a slow cooker. I am sure that it would be good there as the juices would probably get more intense as they cooked longer. would definitely try this recipe out.
