My son’s favorite snack is this homemade, baked apple sauce. It only has two ingredients and absolutely delicious!

Homemade Baked Applesauce


My little guy has been teething. Actually, he has been teething for a couple of months and the tooth broke the surface yesterday! He is almost 3 and he got his first 2nd year molar.
He was always a slow teether. His first tooth didn’t come until he was 11 months. It just takes him so long to get a tooth out and seems like a painful process. He loves to suck on frozen teethers and his favorite treat is a bowl of  cold apple sauce. I’ve been making him this applesauce since he was a little bitty baby (oh memories). He still can’t get enough.
I love this applesauce because it has only 2 ingredients and neither is sugar. Baking the apples makes natural sugars come out and gives them a great sweet caramelized taste.

5-6 red apples (or any apples that you prefer)
2 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp grape seed oil to run the pan
2 tbs water

1. Preheat the oven to 350.
2. Run the 13×9 baking pan with oil and sprinkle the cinnamon all over it.

3. Wash the apples, cut in half and core the apples.

4. Place the apples, cut side down, in the pan on top of cinnamon. Pour the water over the apples.

5. Bake for 30-35 minutes. Touch the apples to make sure they are soft.

6. Scoop the meat of the apples into the blender and discard the skin. SAVE the juice on the bottom of the pan and pour it into the blender as well.

7. Blend well. Serve chilled.

    This apple sauce sound wonderful.  I especially love the simple ingredients in them and no sugar added!   :)  My little girl is almost 3 and she still has 2 empty spaces for her molar!  I wonder if they’re ever going to come out cos she has no signs of teething!  But still, I know she’ll just enjoy this apple sauce just as much.  Thanks for sharing.

     Actually, my little guy’s teeth didn’t come in the exact order. He had spaces too. The cooling feeling is great for teething and its a great snack. Stock up on teethers that you can freeze too :)
