Slow Cooker Applesauce (Whole30 compliant)

On my Whole30 journey, I tried a Tangy BBQ Sauce recipe from The Whole30 Cookbook that was completely sweetened with a sweet potato. It was amazing and it got my wheels turning. I was cooking pork chops that night and wanted applesauce on the side. So, I threw some ingredients in a slow cooker, and boom ~ naturally sweetened slow cooker applesauce was created!
