Whenever possible I try to make my 12 month old son meals from fresh ingredients. It is usually a time suck but it is worth it knowing that I am giving my little guy a healthy meal. When there isn’t a lot of time to put together some elaborate meal, however, it is nice to have a stash of easy recipes I can whip out at a moment’s notice.
This morning I was looking at the fresh fruit I had and decided that I wanted to make some baked apples. Most recipes for baked apples have a lot ingredients including sugar, brown sugar and syrup. I’m not interested in giving any of these things to my son on a regular basis so I needed to come up with my own recipe.
Check below for the simple three ingredient baked apple recipe I came up with for my toddler who, by the way, loved them!
