Unsweetened Apple Sauce Recipe
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.
Recipe Based on 225g portion
- 42g Carbohydrates

- 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.
