I’ve just made applesauce (a favourite of my youngest daughter) after receiving a bagful of apples from Mum’s tree. My applesauce is so plain…just chopped apple and water, lid on and cook until soft. No measurements, no timing.

Of course, adding spices like cinnamon and nutmeg is divine but plain allows you to use the sauce as a base, like in this recipe.

Try mashed banana if you’re in between applesauce batches.

Oats, nut butter, fruit, spices and a bit of real chocolate…why not eat these cookies for breakfast?! They also make a great after-school snack.
