    Have you checked your local chain supermarkets? In Los Angeles, Ralphs (Kroger) and Albertson's have a good selection, while Von's (Safeway) has none.

      The dietitian suggested sugar-free or lo-sugar apple tarts, so I'll concentrate on those. No luck so far.

        How about this place - limited hours, but their claim is "We use only whole-grain flour, primarily fruit for sweetening...."

          Even things that are sweetened with fruit have sugar in them, as fruits are full of sugar, not the processed kind, but fructose, which is still a sugar.

        Not quite sure if they have what you are looking for, but Rustic Bakery has a few locations in Marin.

          Try Mill Valley Market. They have a small section for baked goods with low carb goods baked in the area.
