Put those fresh apples to good use with my best healthy apple recipes for kids—and the rest of the family too! You’ll find pancakes, muffins, cookies, baked apples, oatmeal, applesauce and more. Each is nutritious, easy to make, and so yummy.
Healthy Apple Recipes
This time of the year is perfect for cooking and baking with apples—though I almost always have an apple or two in my fridge, so I tend to use apples all year long. I love to pull together these lists to help you come up with new ideas for produce, especially when you might have an abundance from a trip to an orchard or farmer’s market. (Or just the grocery store!)
Whether you’re in the mood for breakfast, snacks, dessert, or you just want to make a few treats to stash into the freezer, this list has your apple recipe needs covered!
The apple recipes I’ve included here are “healthy” in terms of:
- They’re made with low added sugars.
- Most contain whole grains and fiber.
- They have healthy fats too.
Apple Oatmeal Recipes
Whether you’re looking for oatmeal, overnight oats, or granola, these recipes all feature apples and oats so you can take your pick!
From cookies to donuts, these are delicious ways to turn apples into dessert to enjoy any time of the day.
Bars, Muffins, and Pancakes

Easy Applesauce Recipes
Here are a few of my go-to applesauce recipes that are great to preserve excess apples or to just make a quick fruit sauce.
BLW Apples (and Beyond)
Baked apple slices are so good for babies doing BLW-style of feeding. And my sauteed apples are a favorite finger food for 9+ months.
