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
