Recipe's preparation

    Apple Puree
  1. Roughly chop apples and chop on speed 7 until completely chopped.

    Can use any amount of apples, miminum 200g up to the capacity of the bowl. (chop, add more apples and chop until the bowl is full).

  2. Add coconut oil and cook for 20 minutes, Varoma, speed 2.

  3. Once cooked puree on speed 9, slowly turning dial up to 9 and puree for 1 minute.

  4. Rusks
  5. Weigh in equal parts puree and flour. Mix on speed 5 until combined.

    Add either puree if too dry or flour if too sticky to make a dough. (the dough will form a ball in the bowl when you reach a good consistancy.)

  6. Mix on Dough mode Closed lid for 1 minute.

  7. Remove dough onto lightly floured thermomat and press out with fingers to roughly 1 cm thick and cut with spatula into rusk fingers.

  8. Place on a baking paper lined tray in a 140 degree preheated oven and cook until firm to touch. They will still have some give on the inside and will continue to harden whilst cooling.

Tip

You can use any type of puree you like. I use apple because it's gentle on little tummies and digests well with spelt.

    Submitted by speirsandrea on 17. February 2017 - 18:11.

    I used a mix of organic spelt flour, almond meal and buckwheat flour. I found they took a little longer to cook than the recipe says and that the browner they are the harder they will be. I also found I need more flour than the recipe indicates. They store so well in the freezer and my 8 month old loves them!

  • Rusks are a hit for my 8m old

    Submitted by Bel-1981 on 3. January 2016 - 23:13.

    Rusks are a hit for my 8m old and 3.5y boys. I used 2 carrots (125g) and 390g Apple, 60g coconut oil & 225g spelt flour.

     I rolled and cut into fingers for baby and used cookie cutters and made dinosaurs and helicopters for my older child.  Cooked for 26 mins. 

    I find they are more of a biscuit than a rusk.

    Love finding new healthy recipes for little kids!! Thanks

  • I couldn't get them to harden

    Submitted by Blara on 3. August 2015 - 12:07.

    I couldn't get them to harden after more than 30 mins in the oven. Also only managed to make 11! Have frozen them for when bulbs is a little better with solids...if I don't eat them first!

  • Great recipe. I had to play

    Submitted by kgiddo on 28. July 2015 - 22:05.

    Great recipe. I had to play around with measurements etc because I didnt re weigh the purée after putting 200 grams of apples in at the start plus I ended up running out of apple so through a banana in too. They ended up absolutely perfect and my 7mo just loves them. And now I have made them once and understand the measurements, it'll be a breeze next time. Thank you

  • So far the best rusks I made.

    Submitted by AllyMcBeal75 on 27. May 2015 - 12:41.

    So far the best rusks I made. Thank you for sharing. Saying that, I did have to change the amounts of all to make it work and I did not use Varoma heating as well. I used 200g apples, 30g coconut oil, 90 degrees, 15min. Then chopping and weight 217g pureed. I had to use over 200g spelt flour to get the right consistancy, made them into little fingers and in the oven 140 degrees for about 20min, depens on your oven. They turned out beautifully!

  • I made these and cooked them

    Submitted by Jackiecos on 12. March 2015 - 09:35.

    I made these and cooked them for 20 minutes. I'm not sure if I should have cooked them longer? They are firm but easy to bend and snap. Should I have cooked them until they are as firm as the store bought rusks?

  • These are divine- not just

    Submitted by Misskt77 on 8. March 2015 - 17:26.

    These are divine- not just for bubs, but my 3 1/2 year old was loitering at the oven after tasting the mixture too. Beautiful consistency and gently sweet flavour. I would recommend at least double the apples as mine started to burn during the 20 minutes. So light and bouncy with none of the crap of store bought. My mixture (200g apples= 110 apple purée plus 110 spelt flour) made 18 pinky sized risks at a stretch.

  • Why veroma heat setting

    Submitted by JJones2101 on 28. October 2014 - 23:35.

    Why veroma heat setting please? And 200g of apples did not make 200g of apple puree,  I did 380g apples with 50g coconut oil and it made about 180g puree. But I just added 180g spelt and this worked out perfectly! Thank you! I can't wait for bub to try them tomorrow! 

    Also how long do they need in the oven roughly? I'm a terrible judge and don't want to burn them!

  • Thanks for this recipe. Made

    Submitted by fiinesse on 25. July 2014 - 18:09.

    Thanks for this recipe. Made them today for my 7 month old and he likes the taste. I like how well they hold together, better than commercial risks which end up as gooey mess before long. Also my baby has 6 teeth already so it is important that he can gnaw on something without biting chunks off and gagging on them and these are great in that respect too.
