Sugar Free Apple Turnovers 

Easy to make delicious to have sugar free recipe for those lazy afternoons.

Sugar-free-apple-turnover-SunCakeMomThe worst part of quitting sugar is to renounce our favorite sugary snacks and desserts. Especially high sugar stuff like McDonald’s apple pies. Giving up on sugar means giving up our life as we’ve known it. Sugar free life is like being on the other side of life. Fear not though as there is life after sugar too. Namely the sugar free apple turn-over is here as our savior in need.

It’s the one without any refined sugar or preservatives. It’s as natural as it gets. However if deep fried pastry is a notch above our naturalness then head over to the baked Sugar Free Apple Pie. It’s a real treat too!

Ingredients:

Filling:

  • 2 medium Apples
  • 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
  • Honey or other sweetener of choice in case natural is not good enough
  • 5 tablespoon Water
  • 1 tablespoon Cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
  • 5 tablespoon Water

Dough:

  • 2 cup / 300g Flour
  • 1 Egg
  • ⅔ cup / 150g Butter
  • 1 teaspoon Baking powder
  • 2-6 tablespoon Water (depends on the consistency of the dough)
  • 1 cup / 200ml Olive oil (Or oil of choice for frying)

How to make:

2. Sprinkle the teaspoon of ground cinnamon into the mixing bowl too.

The time has come to use any optional sweetener of choice. Try to keep it low as apples are generally sweet enough and don’t really require extra sweeteners.

3. Pour about 5 spoonfuls of water into the mixing bowl.

4. Mix the filling well and pour it into a saucepan to cook.

Apple turnover dough:

2. Measure butter, cut it into pieces and put the pieces into a small bowl.Cut and measure butter- Sugar free apple turnovers - SunCakeMom

3. Put the bowl over a saucepan of hot water to make butter soft. It is easier to work with it. (Alternatively put the bowl with the butter into the microwave oven for 10 seconds or so in medium heat.)

4. Crack the egg and put it into the mixing bowl with the flour.

11. Fold it in half and push the dough together by hand or with a fork. Make sure there aren’t any gaps where the filling could escape.Suger-free-apple-turnover-process-2-SunCakeMom

 

12. Repeat it 9 times.

13. Pour oil into a frying pan and heat it in medium heat.

14. When it starts sizzling, we can put the first two apple turnovers into the oil to fry.

 

15. In about 20 seconds (maybe more, depending on the hob) turn it round to fry the other side too. They are supposed to look like something similar to this:Suger-free-apple-turnover-process-3-SunCakeMom
