I am starting to really dream of fall and that means out comes the Instant Pot! Today I wanted to share with you an incredible recipe for Instant Pot Cinnamon Pear Apple Sauce. Believe it or not but I adore fruit because it is not only sweet but has its benefits as well. This recipe has become very popular in our home for this fall season.
Being able to balance out your sweet tooth and fruit can sometimes be a challenge but with this Cinnamon Pear Apple Sauce, you will find the challenge becomes much easier to handle. Not to mention, your kids will love this twist on the standard apple sauce recipe.
How To Make Instant Pot Cinnamon Pear Apple Sauce
This recipe is really simple! One big tip I can give you for added fiber, do not peel the apples or pear prior to cooking. The final result will still be incredibly smooth and creamy after blending.

I have a horrible time getting enough fiber in my diet so if you are like me consider not peeling the fruit prior to cooking.
- 4 large apples, cored and chopped
- 2 large pears, cored and chopped
- ¼ c. water or apple juice
- 2 t. ground cinnamon
- 1 T. fresh lemon juice
- Optional: 1-2 T. maple syrup
Combine apples, pears, water, ground cinnamon, and fresh lemon juice in Instant Pot® and stir to combine. Add lid and lock into place. Switch the vent to “Sealing” and set the “Manual” setting to 4 minutes.
When cook time is complete, allow pressure to release naturally for 10 minutes, then manually release any remaining pressure.
Taste and add maple syrup to sweeten, if desired. Carefully transfer mixture to a food processor or high-powered blender and blend until smooth. (For chunkier results, use an immersion blender instead).
Serve immediately, or transfer to airtight containers and place in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Can be stored in the refrigerator for up to one week. Enjoy!
