8-12 Months: Rosemary Roasted Pears

Give your baby a head start on sophisticated flavors with this delicious twist on basic applesauce.

Ingredients: Makes about 2 cups

  • 4 ripe (but not squishy) bartlett pears (about 2 lbs)
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely chopped fresh rosemary
  • 2 tablespoons almond butter
    • Look for creamy unsweetened and unsalted almond butter


  1. Preheat the oven to 378°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Peel and core the pears; slice each into 8 wedges. Toss the pears with the olive oil. Spread them out on the baking sheet and roast for 30 minutes or until tender and lightly golden brown. Cool slightly
  3. Transfer the pears to a medium bowl. Mash the pears with a fork until you get the desired consistency for your baby. Stir in the rosemary and almond butter.
