As I have already mentioned recently, our beautiful little apple tree is just bursting with apples! I hope you like apple recipes! More to come!

This recipe is truly so simple and easy. I make it in large batches and freeze it in my silicon muffin tins, pop them out and store in quart size freezer bags! Makes for quick and easy treats later, or for adding to recipes and even toss in frozen for a smoothie! Remember, apples are a carb source, so this for mainly for E recipes!

My little apple tree, stands about 5 feet tall. It is a dwarf tree, which is exactly what I wanted. I am not tall and I did not want a lot of work to pick apples, nor did I want to have to drag out ladders to accomplish this. Since we don’t have any other fruit trees right near us, I also knew we would need two trees so they could pollinate one another. Until!! Until we ran in to this little beauty! This tree was grafted with two additional kinds of apples! How amazing is that?? I truly love this little tree. It sits right in our front yard, I see it when leaving my home and arriving. I am so thankful we found it! A true blessing! You can see a photo of my tree HERE!

How do you like to use applesauce? I have it in my Just Like Grandmas Rolls, while this is an S recipe, so little is used it is allowable for the carbs you can have in an S setting. Have you tried the rolls yet? They are my absolute favorite egg free bread option! I use them to make burger buns, Patty Melts that are AMAZING!
