Homemade Baby Food Recipes – Pure as babies

Slow Cooker Applesauce

Choose naturally sweet apples such as Empire or McIntosh to reduce the need for added sugar. For baby’s breakfast, I’ve stirred in oatmeal cereal and ground flax seed. I haven’t tried freezing this recipe since it never lasts long at my house, but if you try, let me know how it works out! Update – I froze applesauce in 8 oz Ball freezer containers with success!

Ingredients

Sliced Macintosh Apple

Sliced Macintosh Apple

  • 8-10 medium sized apples
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • 1/8 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon (optional)

Instructions

  1. Wash, peel, core and slice apples.
  2. Combine apples, water and sugar in slow cooker.
  3. Cover and heat on high for 3-4 hours, stirring occasionally. Apples will “mash” on their own, but for younger babies, you may want to blend further.
