2 Minute Apple Pie Recipe for babies 4-6 months

Updated on July 20, 2012

At around 4-6 months you may decide to introduce your baby to pureed fruit and vegetables as a supplement to their regular intake of breast milk or formula.

Babies first foods should be smooth in texture, without any lumps, and should be moist or runny, making them easy for baby to swallow, as a baby will instinctively suck and is yet to learn to chew.

Once your baby has mastered the art of devouring pureed food, you can then begin to introduce finely grated and mashed foods into their diet.

I created this Apple Pie recipe for my baby daughter when she was transitioning from pureed to mashed foods, as a treat because by this stage she was sitting in a high-chair, joining myself and the rest of my family at our dinner table and I sometimes wanted her to experience the joy of having a dessert as we were enjoying ours!

Milk Arrowroot biscuit:

Suitable Grater texture:

Final result:



  1. 1/2 Apple
  2. 2 Table Spoons of plain Yogurt.
  3. 1 Milk Arrowroot biscuit.
  4. 1/3 Cup of boiling water (If you are sterilizing your water prepare water as you would prepare for your baby's bottle).

Preparation Time:

Around 2 minutes!


Place the Milk Arrowroot biscuit in a saucer and pour 1/3 cup of boiling water over the biscuit, leave to cool and peel the apple, then grate it using the section of your grater which cuts the finest texture (If you are preparing this dessert for a baby who is already eating food with lumps and bumps use the opposite section). Place the grated apple into a microwavable dish and heat until warm (usually around 20 seconds if your apple has been stored at room temperature). Next, with a fork, mash the biscuit which should now be moist and slightly fluffy in texture from the boiling water. Spoon the mashed biscuit into a the bottom of your serving dish (A small baby bowl or container) and spread it evenly over the base. Now it is time for the Apple Pie filling. Spread your grated apple evenly over the top of the mashed biscuit. Add a dollop of yogurt to spread on top and your baby's Apple Pie is complete.

Your baby should enjoy the different flavours and textures in this Apple Pie!

Hints and tips:

  • Please ensure that both the biscuit and the grated apple are not too hot before serving your baby! Add a little cool water to your ingredients if needed to cool it down faster.
  • If your biscuit has not been completely softened by the boiling water, add more to ensure a smooth texture.
  • If you're introducing cows milk into your baby's food or mixing it with formula you can mix a little milk into the biscuit base after the boiling water has softened the biscuit.
  • As an alternative to using an apple, try using a peeled and grated pair or a banana mashed at room temperature.
  • This recipe is not suitable for refrigeration or freezing as the soft biscuit base will harden when cooled and it may remain this way even when re-heated, making it unsuitable for babies just learning to chew.
