Low Carb Mock Apple Butter
Let me just say at the outset- there are no apples in this apple butter.
Apple butter is just too carb-y for my diet, so I came up with an apple butter recipe that uses yellow squash instead of apples. A mock apple butter, if you will.
Here's the thing: a normal serving of apple butter has 11g of carbohydrate. On a low carb diet, that could be your total carb allowance for the meal. Problem! But when you swap out the apples with yellow squash, you've got less than 1g of carbohydrate to worry about. Almost nothing.
Now you may be thinking, "YUCK".
I hear you, but trust me on this one. Add some cinnamon and sweetener and you will never know the difference. It's crazy, but completely true.
