Nothing says Fall like a fresh Apple Fritter! The fluffy, iced pastries filled with apple goodness have always been a highlight of apple picking for me (even more than cider donuts!). But alas, these yummy pastries are loaded with carbs. I came up with this Low Carb Apple Fritter Bread to satisfy my Fall craving — it provides all the flavor without the carbs.
This bread is very easy to prepare, and makes a great dish to bring to a fall gathering. No one will guess it’s low carb!
You may be thinking: where is the icing? Apple Fritters have icing! Well, I experimented with several different glazes, but couldn’t find one that tasted just right. I found the Low Carb Apple Fritter Bread to be delicious without it, so I didn’t include one with the recipe. If you do want to add a glaze, you can try this one from The Sugar Free Diva.
Don’t have a favorite low carb sweetener? Check out Low Carb Sweeteners: Which is Best? to find one that works for you. My favorite (if you didn’t know already 😊) is King Arthur Flour’s Baking Sugar Alternative*. It bakes well, is a cup for cup replacement for regular sugar, and doesn’t have the aftertaste that some low carb sweeteners do.
