Easy Homemade Apple Sauce {recipe}

Making apple sauce from scratch is much easier than you may think! And by using the right apples, it will be naturally sweet so you won’t need to add any sugar.

I was making my homemade protein bars recipe which calls for 1/4 cup apple sauce but when I opened up the bottle I had in my fridge, I saw bits of mold. Boo :(

Luckily we always have apples in our fridge so I decided to quickly make some homemade apple sauce.

I only wanted a 1/4 cup, so I just used 1 apple, but you could definitely make a larger batch. One apple actually made close to 1 cup of apple sauce!

Ingredients

Apple(s)*
Cinnamon

* For apple sauce, it’s best to use sweet apples, such as Royal Gala (our favorite), Red Delicious, Fuji (another fav), McIntosh, Yellow Delicious, or Mutsu. Honeycrisp and Pink Lady are also excellent but may be a bit watery. Try different kinds to see you what you like or a use a mix of a few kinds.

Directions

1. Peel apple (or not… your preference) and cut into cubes.

2. Place cubes in a small pan with some water. Enough to cover the bottom and not evaporate, but not “drowning” the apple pieces.

3. Cover and cook on medium heat until apples are soft, about 10-15 min.

4. Drain the remaining water and add your desired amount of cinnamon. Mash with a potato masher or fork.

5. ENJOY!! Eat on it’s own, with ice cream, homemade granola, or however you like!
