Method

  1. Peel, core and cut 1 apple into slices/chunks
  2. Place slices or chunks into a pan with just enough water to slightly cover apples
  3. Boil until tender; be sure to check on the water level.
  4. Apples may be mashed with a potato masher to achieve a smooth applesauce consistency or you can puree in an appliance.
  5. Peel a ripe banana and mash in a bowl with a fork (heating in the microwave for approximately 20 seconds will soften the banana up if needed)
  6. Add applesauce to the banana and sprinkle with wheatgerm or crushed cheerios
  7. Puree if necessary but mashing with a potato masher will typically get this mix smooth
