Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I'll have to substitute Splenda and Splenda brown sugar. Too much sugar and high carb for diabetics

How can this for diabetics with 22g SUGAR?!?!?!

You are to eat only ONE portion.Which equals SUGAR devided by SIX

You are right -- it is 22 grams PER SERVING! Wow!

Looking at the nutrition details for whole recipe, I calculate that the APPLES contribute 12.9 grams sugar per serving and the sugar only 8.9 grams of sugar per serving. I would only serve with low carb meal or make servings smaller.

This was really good! I will make it again.

Yummy ! I've been looking for this for a long time.Should be able to substitute Splenda for the white sugar

Splenda also makes a brown sugar--can not wait to try this
