*Apple Bread*

Hello everyone! I wanted to post this recipe, because you can make this one into a low carb sweet bread. That's if you want to. Just replace the brown sugar with Splenda brown sugar blend and use home made sugar free apple butter. You can get the recipe for Apple Butter at........................................................................ .
This link should take you to the page that gives you two different recipes to choose from. You can also use apple juice with no sugar added. Well enjoy!

Instead of 1 cup of brown sugar, try natural 'agave syrup' and you only need 1/2 cup...less than sugar. Agave does not raise your blood sugars and is the best sweetener to use. Check it out
