Easy Roasted Applesauce
Author: Julie – My Merry Messy Life
Serves: 2 cups
This super simple recipe for roasted applesauce tastes delicious and is a snap to whip together. Get your kids involved with the simple prep. Yummy!
  • Approx. 4 cups apples, cored and chopped into 1/2″ cubes
  • 1.5 tbsp grass fed butter (use ghee or coconut oil if avoiding dairy)
  • 2 tsp cinnamon (optional) or 2 drops of Young Living Cinnamon Essential Oil ([url href=”http://mymerrymessylife.com/essential-oils-2″ target=”_blank”]where to buy[/url])
  • 1-2 tbsp raw honey
  1. Place chopped apples into an oven safe baking dish. I used a 9×9 Pyrex for this amount of apples.
  2. Disburse the butter over the apples.
  3. Sprinkle on as much cinnamon as you like. I really like cinnamon.
  4. Drizzle on the honey.
  5. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
  6. Mash up the apples with a fork.
  7. Continue baking for another 30 minutes or longer if apples are not soft enough.
  8. Remove from oven and mash again with a fork or for a smoother consistency, blend.
Store in the fridge for up to a week.[br]Best served warm, allowing the buttery goodness to work it’s magic.

A few notes on getting that perfect applesauce.

  • I prefer to use Granny Smith apples for this recipe.  They are firm and hold up well to baking.  In a pinch, any apple will do.  You may have to adjust the cooking times slightly so the applesauce doesn’t become too mushy.
  • Peel the apples – mostly.  In an effort to make this recipe super fast, I did leave some of the peels on the apples.  Totally ok.
  • Use a lot of apples.  I started with about four cups of chopped apples and ended up with about two cups of applesauce.  Get the whole family involved with the prep and make a big batch!
  • I use the term “recipe” pretty loosely.  Add more or less of something.  Try it with pumpkin pie spice.  Use maple syrup instead of honey.  I’m sure it will still be delicious.

Please let me know how you like this recipe and if you have any favorite seasonal dishes of your own.  Enjoy!
