Low Carb Mock Apple Cobbler
Greetings from Pittsburgh.
Where Fall has finally fallen. The air is getting cool, the leaves are changing color, and apple picking season has begun. Too bad we can’t eat apples on a low carb diet, eh?
Well, there is a workaround, if you are up for it.
With a little bit of finessing, yellow squash can be a very good substitute for cooked apples. You cook the squash in butter and add in some cinnamon, ginger and lemon juice and voila! You’ve got a great low carb substitute for apples.
Here’s what a pan of mock apples looks like.
They look and taste just like real apples, but they have half of the carbohydrate.
I’ve been making mock apples for awhile now.
I’ve made a mock apple coffee cake, apple butter, muffins and even dried them out to make mock dried apples. But I think that I like today’s recipe for mock apple cobbler best of all. It’s pure comfort food with only 6g net carbs per serving.
