Apple-Pecan Custard

I have been told that you can use other fruits to make this custard but I haven't tried any (yet) so I can't say if they will work as well as apples but who knows you may be the first to try. If so let us know how it turns out.

This Apple-Pecan Custard is also a
great tasting and healthy after school snack for the kids.


Nonstick cooking spray
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/3 cup milk
1 egg, slightly beaten
3Tbs. packed brown sugar substitute (Splenda)
1Tbs. butter,melted
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. maple flavoring
3/4 cup chopped cooking apples (about 1 small apple)
1/3 cup rolled oats
2Tbs. chopped Pecans, toasted (see tip ****)
4 Tbs. whipped cream (see tip ***)


Preheat oven to 375°F. Lightly coat four 6-ounce ramekins with cooking spray. (Or use paper cups in a muffin pan). Place ramekins in a 15 x 10 x 1 inch pan.
In a medium bowl, combine applesauce, milk ,egg, brown sugar substitute, butter,vanilla, and maple flavoring. Stir in apple pieces and oats.
Divide evenly among ramekins. Bake about 25 minutes or until a knife inserted near center comes out clean. Cool. Sprinkle with pecans.

Old-Fashion Fried Fruit Pies

Old-Fashion Fried Pies

Just like granny used to make!
Remember the delicious fried fruit pies your Grandmother made?...
Well you can still eat them and they are so simple to make it will surprise you!
Can be used as breakfast, snack or dessert.

You can use the sugar free pie filling found in most stores or make your own.


Low-carb tortilla (4 to 6 inch round)
can of sugar free fruit pie filling
cinnamon (option)

Spread 1 teaspoon of butter on tortilla
add 1 to 1+1/2 tablespoons of fruit pie filling on one side
Sprinkle with cinnamon (if using apple pie filling)
Fold and mash edges with fork to close.
Fry in butter on medium heat until brown, turn and fry on other side until brown.
Serve warm.
**Can also be baked in 350 F oven until golden brown. Brush with a dab of oil or melted butter before baking.

Tortilla has 5 g carbs
filling has around 2 g carbs

One serving is about 7 g of carbs depending on amount of filling used in tortilla.

You can add 1 tablespoon of whipped topping if you like but this will increase your carb count, depending on what kind of topping you use.
OR sprinkle with Splenda powder sugar.

To make your own filling: Cook sliced apples (cherries, peaches, apricots) in butter and Splenda sweetener until tender. Add cinnamon if using apples.
Then prepare as above.

TIP: Cinnamon is known to help reduce blood sugar.
