Jeff,
I've been making applesauce for 50 years with NO sugar, and a hint cinnamon, and everyone who has ever tasted it says it's terrific!

I agree heartily with your comments, cinnamon is lovely with apples... yum, but no sugar added!

Unless the apples are really sour, not many are, you don't need to add sugar to make apple sauce, though you could add raisins for sweetening, but this is supposed to be some sort of healthy snack not chock full of sugar!

I'm glad to see a gluten-free recipe that's not afraid of sugar! I for one think there's nothing wrong with a little (stress "Little") sugar now and then, if you're not diabetic or allergic!
