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!

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!


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.

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! 😋😍

  • I have this in the oven now and the house smells incredible!! Just one note. In the steps for the almond flour crumble you say to mix the almond flour, salt and xanthum gum. But there is no salt in the recipe. I assumed you meant sweetener not salt. Just thought I should mention it. I’ll report back later after we eat dessert! Thanks for bringing an old favourite back into the mix for us!! Can’t wait to try it!

    • Yum! I hope you all enjoy. Looking forward to your review. ☺️
      Oh, and thank you so much for catching that! I see what you mean and I’ll get that fixed. Thanks Angie!

      • O.M.G. We have made this three times since I posted my last review and it’s incredible! It’s so easy and absolutely delicious! Thank you so much for this recipe! It totally satisfies the craving for fall desserts. The apple cinnamon sweetness with the perfect crumb topping! I’m sharing this recipe with everyone I know, whether they are doing low carb or not. It’s too good not to share!
