This home made paleo apple sauce is so delicious you’ll never want to buy a canned one again! Plus, it’s so easy to prepare with a minimum amount of ingredients.

Apple sauce is one of my kiddo’s favourite, and honestly mine too. I grew up with this. I’m Belgian, and here we combine this with meat such as chicken, meat stew or meatloaf. This may sound weird, it definitely was to my husband (who is Cuban) and never heard or seen of this in his life. So maybe you’ll want to try that European custom.

I usually have this apple sauce on days I’m increasing my carb intake and it works as a great side dish.

For the ingredients

The apples: I used fresh apples from my local grocery store. I’m making this recipe in September, which is the best time to buy and eat apples. Yay, Fall vibes!

The sweetener: I used a tablespoon of coconut sugar to sweeten up the apple sauce a little bit, because the apples I bought were rather on the sour side. If you don’t have coconut sugar, you can also use a tablespoon of maple syrup or honey. But you can easily leave this out if you don’t want to add in any extra sugar.

The cooking oil: I used extra virgin coconut oil, to cook the apples with.

Want to add in some extra ‘Fall Spices’? You can add in some cinnamon, which also pairs great with apples.


4 servings


– 8 medium sized red apples
– 1 tablespoon coconut sugar
– 1 tablespoon coconut oil
– 1 cup water


  1. Start by peeling the apples and cut them into smal pieces.
  2. Add 1 tablespoon of coconut oil to a medium sized pot on medium to high heat.
  3. Once the oil is melted, add the cut apple. Let is cook for about 1-2 minutes and add half of the water and the coconut sugar.
  4. Lower the heat and let is simmer until the apple pieces start to ‘melt’.
  5. Once the apple pieces are fully cooked, mix everything with an immersion blender (or blend in a blender).
