A few days ago I uploaded a post talking about applesauce, its benefits and its uses, so I thought this would be the perfect time to show you how I make my own homemade unsweetened applesauce. I use applesauce in a lot of my baking and you would be surprised at how easy it is to make at home! Essentially all you need are some apples, water, a peeler and a pan!
Baking is my therapy. Whenever I’m feeling stressed or agitated, I always find that baking makes me feel better. The whole process of sifting, measuring, mixing, then knowing I’ll have something yummy to enjoy at the end of it. It also leaves the house smelling so homely and inviting 🙂 my house definitely smelt good when making these Chai Spiced oat bars.
Applesauce is a healthy, low calorie and low fat baking substitute for oil, butter and eggs. It’s also a great option for vegan baking. It works better for some recipes than others and you may need to adjust baking time when using applesauce.
