Cinnamon-Apple Sauce

Apples and cinnamon, ready to be baked into sauce. Yum!

Cinnamon-Apple Sauce

We still have a few apples kicking around from the last time we went apple picking.  Sad, bruised apples that was going to eat...  What better way to give them new life than applesauce?

Apples, baked
This applesauce is completely sugar free.  I used a little bit of canola oil to grease the casserole dish to prevent the apples from sticking, but you could use nonstick spray or whatever you happen to have on hand.  I left the skins on my apples for a little extra nutritional boost, but you could peel yours.

When I asked my taste tester (my toddler) to try a bite her eyes opened wide.  She immediately asked for a bowl.  Applesauce made from scratch is a whole other level of delicious, trust me.  Better yet, make some for yourself.
