Low Carb Apple Crisp
Fall is finally here! My husband and I have lived in Florida our entire lives and fall for us means pumpkins everywhere, people talking about how we don’t actually get to experience “Fall” here in Florida, and good comfort food!
We love living here in Florida but one day we will travel up north and experience the beauty of actual “Fall”. For now, at least, we still get the pleasure of seeing what fall is supposed to look like as people decorate their homes, the stores stock their shelves for this years home harvest decorations, and of course.. the holiday comfort food!
This low carb apple crisp will fit perfectly into your fall baking plans (or your summer, winter, or spring baking plans)! The warmth of the cinnamon, the sweetness of the apple, and the savory ness of the almond flour crumble is amazing!
If you love a home filled with the smell of fall and apples, you will love making this delicious low carb Apple Crisp almost as much as you’ll love eating it! Enjoyed warm or chilled, this is a fall-favorite that we love to make every year.
This low carb apple crisp is essentially an apple pie, just without the high carb crust or high sugar filling… and with more flavor! You will definitely want to give this low carb apple crisp a try!
Cooking With Mom Series: Apple Crisp
My mom can make a tasty apple pie! Actually, anything she make is tasty (That’s just the nature of moms, right?)!
Since we all have made changes to our diets, cooking in her home and my home has changed. She told me about this apple crisp she made that was absolutely delicious without having to using regular flour and sugar.. perfect!
So of course, I told her to come over and we made one together and boy, it is a winner! She has so many great low carb recipe ideas, she wants to share them with you guys too! Thanks mom!
This apple crisp is incredibly easy to make! It is a simple two-step process: 1) make the filling, and 2)make the apple crumble to go on top. Then, bake!
How To Make The Apple Filling:
- Slice 4-5 apples. Four apples for less carbs. You may also peel the skin of the apple if thats your preference. We love the taste of it so we kept it! Use this Apple Slicer
- Melt one stick of butter.
- Add in the apple slices, sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla. Mix periodically.
- Allow apples to soften and and mixture to thicken, about 5-7 minutes. Sugar and butter will caramelize and become thick.
- Pour mixture into pie dish and set aside
How To Make The Apple Crisp:
- Melt one stick of butter, set aside after fully melted.
- In a separate bowl, combine and mix almond flour, sweetener, and xanthan gum.
- Pour in the melted butter.
- This should start to form small clumps as shown in image 6 as a final result before going in the oven.
- Add the crisp on top of apples
- Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes.
Serve warm with some whipped cream! Apple crisps is one of those recipes that also tastes just as good cold. I love waking up in the morning and getting a slice out of the fridge! Warm or cold, it’s just as tasty!

Which Almond Flour Should I Use?
The kind of almond flour you use will definitely have an impact on how your apple crisp turns out. Almond meal or coarse almond flour will have a different texture and moisture level than a fine almond flour.
We recommend Wholesome Yum’s Super Fine Blanched Almond Flour. It has a 1:1 ratio to white four, is made from California almonds, tastes amazing, and best of all… it makes an AMAZING low carb apple crisp! Grab it here and use our discount code “BUTTERTOGETHER” for 10% off your entire purchase.
