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!

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:

  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!

Just tried this recipe. I used Swerve granulated sweetener. Next time I'll use a little less it was a bit sweet. I'd also like to try the crust with brown Swerve sweetener. Thank you. It was delicious with a dollop of whipped cream. I finally have an low carb apple recipe I like.

Thanks for trying it! We are so glad you enjoyed it!

Hi I just tried the recipe and it was delicious but I went wrong somewhere because my crumble never got crunchy.... any ideas where I went wrong?




Tuesday 22nd of September 2020

@Christine, I noticed that when I was mixing the flour and drys with the butter, the texture got real smooth and wet (note, I had no xantham gum, so added 2 tsp of psyllium husk to thicken). So I added about 2 tablespoons of coco flour (I used my last almond flour on the crumble), and finally hit the right texture at about 4tbsp of extra dry ingredients.

I think if you used maybe...6 tbsp of butter, instead of a full 8, or upped the flour volume, it would come out dry and crumbly.

Thank you for trying it out! I am not sure what went wrong, other than not baking it long enough? Humidity might affect things like that, but it really just depends. We hope you enjoy it nonetheless!

I made this today with half the amount of butter ( I used vegan butter) and half the amount of monk fruit and it was still delicious.


Sunday 6th of September 2020

So glad you found it delicious with the modifications!

I want to use this recipe but I would prefer to use coconut sugar. I would just use the same amount. Would that work. I know the carbs would be more. Not quite sure how to figure that out. Have any suggestions? Thanks so much.


Tuesday 4th of August 2020

We have never tried it, so we are not sure how that would work. Let us know how it goes if you do give it a try!
