Seriously! You wouldn't know that you're not eating a real apple. These "apple fries" are amazing! Can you guess what the apple replacement is? No, no okra or cauliflower! (Whew!) The star here is jicama!

Are you familiar with jicama?

Here are some facts about the jicama, according to Dr. Ax. (Read the full article here).

  1. Great source of prebiotic fibers.
  2. Supports weight loss and blood sugar control
  3. Helps increase immune function.
  4. Heart health benefits
  5. Ideal for digestion
  6. Rich in antioxidant vitamin C
  7. Supports bone health

Not bad for a little-known vegetable! For Trim Healthy Mamas, jicama is considered starch-free, which means it is a fuel. Great news!

I have used jicama to make low carb chips and have had the idea of ​​"apple chips" in my head for quite some time. I thought maybe I should boil or bake them side by side. But it turns out that they work very well in the rough. They are the perfect crunchy texture for an apple replacement! (And since jicama is low in carbohydrates, we can also have our jicama and our caramel sauce!)

You certainly don't have to use this particular caramel sauce, but I think salty maple adds a great depth of flavor. However, this caramel tends to crystallize somewhat as it cools (due to the sugar alcohols found in xylitol). If you want an amazing caramel sauce that stays nice and creamy, check out Brooke's 5-Minute Caramel Sauce.

So what do you need for these low carb apple fries?

For the fries:

1 medium jicama, peeled and cut into potato chips

3 tablespoons xylitol

3/4 teaspoon cinnamon

For the caramel:

4 tablespoons of butter

6 tablespoons xylitol

1 tablespoon of maple extract

1 tablespoon of heavy cream

1/2 teaspoon of mineral salt

(You can certainly use a different sweetener here if you want. Xylitol is toxic to dogs, so be careful if you have pets.)
