Keto Apple Crisp

This crisp combines fresh fruit with nuts, cinnamon, and vanilla, for a wonderful dessert that is beautiful with whipped cream.
Prep Time:10 mins
Cook Time:30 mins
Total Time:40 mins
Servings:4 bowls

Ingredients

  • 2 Fuji apples medium size, peeled, cored, and thinly sliced
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts raw and unsalted
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sweetener

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375°F. Take a 9-inch baking pan and layer the sliced apples on the bottom of it.
  • Mix the melted butter, cinnamon, walnuts, vanilla extract, and sweetener in a medium bowl. Then evenly pour this mixture over the layered apples.
  • Bake for 30 minutes until the apple slices are soft and the walnuts should be golden. Divide the crisp into four serving bowls, drizzle them with the remaining juice from the pan, and then serve and enjoy!

Notes

  • The shortcut of not peeling the apples isn’t worth it since the peel will come off during cooking and not be good in the texture of the dessert.
  • If you prefer, you could whip the sweetener into some heavy cream instead of adding it to the apple crisp. The finished dessert will have the same amount of sweetness. I sometimes add a few drops of vanilla to my homemade whipped cream too!
  • Swap half the nuts for almond meal or coarse almond flour if you want a slightly different texture.
  • Add half a teaspoon of xanthan gum to the filling if you have it on hand. This ingredient can thicken up the texture. I don’t usually bother with it in my keto desserts though.
