This recipe is made possible by the combination of three different recipes that I have worked on recently! First the caramel flavor is based on my Pecan Caramels (which also feature in my latest book: Low Carb Snacks), the apple flavoring is based on extracts I had left over after making the delicious Apple Donut Bites, and the sauce is thickened by a new product I was testing for my Sweet and Sour Sauce!
The combination of these recipes resulted in a warm, thick, sauce that has all the smells of fall! Pour it over low carb pancakes, waffles, or even ice cream (and yes, I *do* eat ice cream year-round!)
Add low carb sweetener and water to a small saucepan. I use xylitol but Swerve or similar would also work well. Cook over a medium heat until the mixture is clear. Add some unsalted butter, and continue to cook until it starts to darken at the edges.
Pour in a little baking soda, and the mixture will froth up. Add in some apple extract (this two pack of baking oil is perfect as I had one left over after making those Apple Donut Bites). Sprinkle over one teaspoon of LC Thick’n Saucy – it’s a zero carb thickener from LC Foods. Or you could use some xanthan gum if you prefer, but you probably won’t need as much as one teaspoon. Stir well. My saucepans are all non-stick, so a silicone whisk is perfect for this task.
The sauce will be gorgeously thick and ready to serve! It’s best served warm, so if you have leftovers, warm them in the microwave before serving.
