I love baking with applesauce. My little’s love eating applesauce and having it packed it in their lunch bags.
I stumbled on this quick recipe for making raw applesauce. I was planning on baking breakfast cookies and realized I was missing applesauce from the ingredient list. I thought about running to the store or postponing the breakfast cookie plan. I realized I had some apples in the pantry. Then I wondered…how hard is it to make applesauce from scratch.
The recipes I found generally were for large batches and required canning. So then I thought about it… applesauce is pretty much just pureed apples with sugar and lemon juice. I think my blender can tackle that in a few minutes.
The trial testing began and success was rather easy.
For this recipe, I used my Ninja Blender. I found this blender almost 5 years ago and still swear by it for all things blender.
2 Medium Apples
2 Tbs. Coconut Sugar (or sweetener of your preference)
1 Tsp. Lemon Juice (or lime)
1/2 Tsp. Cinnamon
1/2 Tsp. Nutmeg (optional)
1/8 C. Water
Wash and core the apples. Place all ingredients in the blender. Blend for 1 minute to determine the consistency you prefer. This recipe makes around 1 cup of raw applesauce.
You can double and triple the recipe if you would like to can your raw applesauce. My family never makes it more than a few days before it’s gone!
