I love apples and I love apple season. There is nothing quite like standing in an orchard in the cool, crisp fall air and biting into a freshly picked apple. Of course, I have to severely limit my apple intake now, as they are not exactly low carb or. Still, I like to find ways to work them into recipes, like in these low carb cinnamon apple scones so I can enjoy apple season without feeling deprived. And a little apple extract can help boost that flavor even more in these low carb scones.
