Americans love our sugar. The average, yes, average, American consumes over 150 pounds of it each year, according to the US government. If you are like millions of others who are trying to cut down on the amount of sugar that you eat, you probably take it for granted that apple pies are off the menu. Well, they don’t have to be!

This sugar-free apple pie recipe comes directly from my own Grandma’s kitchen! She developed this recipe after years of struggling to find a sugar free apple pie her diabetic husband would actually love! I think she did it. This recipe makes pies that are not only delicious, but it contains no added sugar at all. Bake this homemade sugar-free apple pie recipe the next time you have a sweet craving, and I am pretty sure that you won’t even miss the sugar.

The Secret to an Amazing Sugar-Free Apple Pie

There are two equally critical components to any apple pie: the crust and the filling. Get one of those wrong, and even if the other is really, really good, the pie will turn out mediocre at best.

This recipe calls for two prepared pie crusts. Sure, when you are short on time, you can use a store-bought crust ( make sure that it does not contain any sugar), but you really ought to do yourself a favor and make your own. You can use any of your favorite sugar-free pie crust recipes, or try out one of the great recipes for pie crusts on Yummy.

With the pie crust out of the way, it is time to move on to the filling. The challenge with making a tasty sugar free apple pie filling is two-fold. Not only does the filling have to be delicious, but it needs to be thick enough not to ooze out of a slice and run all over the plate. This recipe uses one and a half tablespoons of cornstarch as a thickener. Cornstarch works well, but you need to make sure you cook the filling long enough to let cornstarch do its magic. Make sure the liquid in your filling is thick enough coat the back of a spoon before removing it from the heat.

Tips on How to Make and Serve Sugar Free Apple Pie

  • Keep your pie crust ingredients cold. Never allow your pie crust ingredients to heat up, that especially is true for the butter. Overmixing can add unwanted heat to the crust.
  • Make sure the filling is completely cool before filling the bottom crust. Not only is it better for the crust as discussed above, but allowing the sugar-free apple pie filling to cool will enable it to thicken entirely.
  • Add a sprinkling of cheese before baking. Cheddar cheese goes great with apple pie. Try it out by spreading a handful of shredded cheddar to the top of the crust for the last five minutes of baking.

    Frozen apple juice is loaded with sugar so I don’t see how this could possibly be called a no added sugar recipe.

    he best Apple pie my husband and I ever ate. And we are old lol. I used a mix of apples from our trees and peeled and cut them with the slicer and peeler attachment for my KitchenAid mixer. The slices were thin but they did not get mushy at all and we loved the crisp texture. We did make just a few changes. Used 1/2 cup white sugar and 1/2 cup brown, and added 1/4 tsp salt and increased the cinnamon to 1/2 tsp. We did cheat big time on the crust and used Pillsbury refrigerated crust. Cooked the filling according to directions as given. It is the last 2 minutes of the reduction of juices where all the business is done. This pie was not runny at all. I think the cooling helps. Can’t recommend it enough and we will be making it for thanksgiving. Thanks for this wonderful recipe.
