Microwave Apples and Cinnamon (For Small Children)

READY IN: 8mins
Recipe by MTpockets

This is more for the older baby that has graduated to finger foods. Like around 1 yr. old and older. It's super easy and quick and mom gets to control how sweet (or not sweet) it is. Just be sure to cool completely before serving. (Don't wan't to burn little ones hands or mouth!) I've even been guilty of snacking on this myself! I use about a medium sized apple that is good for baking.

No kids; just made it for myself. It was a very healthy, tasty snack. Thanks for sharing!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Peel, core and dice apple into bite sized (small) pieces.
  2. Place apple pieces in microwave safe dish and add 2 tablespoons water.
  3. Microwave apple on High 1-3 minutes.
  4. Check on it and stir every 20-30 seconds or so until it reaches desired tenderness.
  5. When apple is cooked and soft enough for baby to eat, remove from microwave and sprinkle with as much or as little sugar and cinnamon as you wish. (My personal experience has been that the younger the child the more bland they like it but it's up to you!).
  6. Let apple cool completely or until slightly warmer than room temperature and serve.
