Apple Cupcakes (made with Oat Flour, gluten-free & diabetic-friendly)
I was inspired to make apple cupcakes. However, apples are massive sugar and carb balls. Generally this autumn fruit is excluded from Keto and Atkins diets, but there’s nothing like the taste of warm apple pie! To cut down on carbohydrates and sugars in cupcakes, this recipe uses Oat Flour and Xylitol so they are gluten-free and zero-glycemic.
