There’s got to be some more on this plate somewhere.


Author: Angela. Part of the simple recipe collection that my daughter loved from 4 month-8 months. ( A small disclaimer: Nutritional recommendations for infants have changed radically since January 2010. Prior to that study, allergens were considered foods to delay and now the prevailing thought is that allergens should be introduced early. As with all recommendations, please consult your pediatrician to make a decision about what works for you.)


  • • 2-3 apples, cored and cut into ½” cubes
  • • 2 Tbls butter, coconut oil or hempseed oil (you can add more if you want a smoother texture)


  1. Using a steamer basket, steam apples until fully cooked and almost mushy, about 10-13 minutes. Remove from steamer basket into blender or food processor and add fat of your choice.
  2. Blend thoroughly and allow to cool before refrigerating for up to 4 days.
  3. Once your child has been introduced to a larger variety of foods, applesauce is a great vehicle for adding protein in the form of nut butters or protein powders. It is also an excellent vehicle for nutritional oils, like pumpkin seed, flaxseed or hempseed.
