Baby Food- Cinnamon Raisin Applesauce


Here’s an idea for those of you with babies who are more adventuresome eaters. (This would certainly NOT describe my firstborn son, Austin, who has always been a picky eater. However, our youngest, David, will eat just about anything if I put it in the blender.)

I got the idea to make this myself after David tried Beechnut’s Cinnamon Raisin Granola Stage 3 baby food. I don’t have any exact measurements. Just use as much water, applesauce and cereal as you normally would to make a small bowl of cereal for your child.

Cinnamon Raisin Applesauce


Small box of raisins (or small handful)

Water (a few spoonfuls)

Applesauce (a few glugs from the jar- maybe 2 or 3 ounces)

Multigrain Infant Cereal, or other variety (enough to thicken)

Dash of Cinnamon

Just give it all a few good whirls in the blender until the raisins are chopped up well and incorporated into the mixture and you’ll have your very own homemade baby food.

Makes enough to fill a 4 ounce baby food container.

    I tried this for Jeremiah and just left out the raisins because we didn’t have any in the house, and he loved it. It is a great way to add more substance to applesauce and turn it into more of a meal. Thanks for sharing!
