These Green “Apple” Low Carb Protein Muffins are about to blow your mind — the muffins have a “apple cinnamon” vibe, but without all of the sugar and carbs! They are high protein, low carb, gluten free, and dairy free!
There are actually no apples in this recipe. A low carb and low sugar alternative for apples we discovered this past summer is green tomatoes! Unlike most other tomatoes, green tomatoes have a firm outer shell, so they can still offer that crispy component to baked goods. While an apple has ~ 19 g sugar, and is ~ 25 g carbs (which would not work on a keto diet), a green tomato has only ~ 4 g sugar and ~ 6 g carbs.
