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!

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:

 

apple filling step by step

  1. 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
  2. Melt one stick of butter.
  3. Add in the apple slices, sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla. Mix periodically.
  4. Allow apples to soften and and mixture to thicken, about 5-7 minutes. Sugar and butter will caramelize and become thick.
  5. Pour mixture into pie dish and set aside

How To Make The Apple Crisp:

  1. Melt one stick of butter, set aside after fully melted.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine and mix almond flour, sweetener, and xanthan gum.
  3. Pour in the melted butter.
  4. This should start to form small clumps as shown in image 6 as a final result before going in the oven.
  5. Add the crisp on top of apples
  6. 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! 

 

Best Sweetener To Use

We always use Lakanto’s Monkfruit when we make anything that requires sweetener, and this low carb apple crisp is no exception! Lakanto’s Monkfruit is by far our favorite keto/low-carb sweetener available for a number of reasons: it is 100% keto friendly, 100% natural, has no nasty aftertaste, has a 1:1 ratio to sugar which makes converting traditional recipes extremely easy, it tastes amazing, and it is zero glycemic. 

 

If you’ve never tried Monkfruit before, or if you just need to restock, shop Lakanto’s website and use our code “BUTTERTOGETHERK” to save 20% off your entire purchase! This code works for all of Lakanto’s products, not just their classic Monkfruit, so be sure to shop their entire website and pick up some of their amazing keto friendly products.

 

 

HELPFUL TOOLS

 

 

  • Apple Slicer – If you don’t already have this handy tool, this is a personal favorite! So convenient and easy to slice your apples

 

  • Clear Pie Plate – Super cute and sturdy pie plate for your baked goods!

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.

Hi: Tried doing it. Even used exactly your brands for sugar and almond flour. Mine came out too wet. I sensed it was a lot of butter but used exactly the amount in the recipe. Maybe my apples, I only had red ones or I let them release too much liquid.🤷🏻‍♀️ The taste is good and the smell fabulous. The crumble was also too wet with the butter. Put it in frigde to see if it solidifies a bit.

I made this crisp after a full day of Fall photo taking and visiting. Added about a teaspoon of fresh nutmeg (because I add fresh nutmeg to all Fall baking) and used 2 1/2 Honey Crisp apples. I ate the other 1/2 before it could hit the butter. I have a Kenmore counter top oven which I baked this in and WOW did my entire house fill up with the scent of Fall goodness! Although I do have a sweet-tooth, I will cut down on the sweetener next time, and there will be a next time!
