Unsweetened Apple Sauce Recipe

If you’re on a health kick, or indeed following The Body Coach 90 Day Plan, or The Body Coach Graduate Plan, you might find that some of your delicious recipes call for unsweetened apple sauce.

It’s nearly impossible to find this in the supermarket, the only suitable alternative I have been able to find is baby food pouches. However, I find these to be particularly expensive when compared to the price of a bag of apples.

Therefore, I’ve been following this simple recipe below and making my own super tasty unsweetened apple sauce.

Just as a little tip, I always leave the skins on the apples because you’ll find the skin is full of nutrients.

Equipment Needed


Recipe Based on 225g portion

  • 42g Carbohydrates
  • 0g Fat
  • 2g Protein


  • 225g Apples, diced with skin on
  • 2 tbsp Cinnamon
  • Boiling water (enough to cover apples)


  • Dice up your apples making sure to remove the core and seeds.
  • Place apples into your saucepan and add enough water to cover the apples.
  • Place on the hob on medium-high heat and cover to bring to a boil
  • Check the apples periodically and when soft enough for a fork or knife to slide through, remove from heat.
  • Drain the apples and transfer to a blender
  • Add in the cinnamon and blend until a smooth puree

You can keep your unsweetened apple sauce in the fridge for up to two weeks or throw it straight into a delicious recipe you’re in the middle of making. However, if you’re making a larger batch, you can portion some out to freeze for up to two months.
