Homemade Applesauce

IMG_20160318_143441

Applesauce really wasn’t on my radar until I started doing more baking and wanted to use healthier ingredients to replace oils, butters, etc. Now that I make my own every so often, I remember how delicious it is and the best part is it’s SO simple to make! If I have leftover apples, I’ll whip up a batch and it’ll last in the fridge for about a week. You can eat it plain, with nut butter/greek yogurt or use it in baking!

Here’s how you make it (approx. 3 cups):

  1. Put 8 chopped apples into a saucepan with 1.5 cups water, 2 tsp cinnamon and a dash vanilla
  2. Cook on medium-high heat for 20 minutes
  3. Remove from heat, let cool and throw into a blender
  4. Blend until your desired consistency – I prefer mine fairly smooth, especially if I’ll be baking with it

How much simpler can it get, right?? It’s such a nice change to snack on applesauce, rather than an apple, and know there aren’t any added sugars or weird ingredients that sometimes come along with prepackaged versions.

Ingredients:

  • 8 red apples, cored + roughly chopped
  • 1.5 cups water
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • dash vanilla

Let me know what you think!

Cheers!
