Simple and Delicious Sugar Free Apple Pie Recipe

So simple and fast to make that even after a busy day we can whip up a healthy all natural sugar free apple pie like this one in minutes.

It’s an excellent choice when we are craving something sweet and we happen to be on a no sugar diet. Especially when we have just started quitting sugar. That’s tough stuff. Luckily apples are our saviors in tough situations. Fiber rich low sugar treat from mother nature herself right into our pie! Well it won’t make the pastry less calorie rich but there is so much we can do about it. If we make the pastry out of whole grain flour then it’s gonna be more suitable dessert for diabetics. (As it won’t get absorbed that quickly by the body thus won’t peak the blood sugar that much which is actually better for everybody not only diabetics.)

As a bonus point this sugar free pie is very simple to make. With a maximum of 20 minutes preparation time we can put a delicious dessert on the dinner table. If we fancy something more vicious then head over to the deep fried but still Sugar free apple turnover

How to make Apple pie

  1. Put flour, baking powder, butter, egg, vanilla, optional sweetener and the water or milk into a medium size bowl.Flour-egg-butter-honey-gp-SunCakeMom
  2. Work the butter and egg into the flour until it comes together by hand. A lot depends on the moisture content of the flour. If the dough is too dry and flaky, pour a little bit more water over the mixture. If it still sticks to the bowl or onto our hands after ten minutes of kneading then add a bit of more flour to it.Flour-butter-mixed-dough-gp-SunCakeMom
  3. Place the dough ball into the fridge until chilled or at least until we finish shredding the apples.
  4. Peel and shred the apples. Hold them at the core without shredding hands so keep the core and shred it around.
  5. Sprinkle the apples with lemon juice so they won’t go brown. Add the cinnamon and work it together.
  6. Get the dough out of the fridge and divide it into two pieces. A bigger and a smaller piece: ⅓ and ⅔.
  7.  On a lightly floured surface, roll the bigger piece of dough into the form and size of our baking tray.Pie-crust-process-gp-SunCakeMom-3
  8. Place disk onto the tray, fit or tweak it if needed.Pie-crust-process-gp-SunCakeMom-4
  9. Put the filling on top of the dough.Sugar-free-apple-pie-process-11-SunCakeMom

Apple isn’t the only thing that fits into pies nor pie is the only name for this round deliciousness:

F.A.Q.

Can a diabetic eat apple pie?

Diabetic people can eat all the unreasonably sugary starchy things that people who hasn’t yet developed diabetes eat. This is why they take insulin. If someone doesn’t want to develop type 2 diabetes though best to consume carbs in moderation and in as natural way as its possible.
