Ingredients

  • 2 oz. 50 g butter, at room temperature
  • 1 oz. 30 g pecans or walnuts
  • 4 tbsp 4 tbsp (30 g) coconut flour
  • ½ tsp ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp ¼ tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1 tart/sour appletart/sour apples
For serving
  • ¾ cup 175 ml heavy whipping cream
  • ½ tsp ½ tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Mix soft butter, chopped nuts, coconut flour, cinnamon and vanilla into a crumbly dough.
  2. Rinse the apple, but don't peel it or remove the seeds. Cut off both ends and cut the middle part in four slices.
  3. Place the slices in a greased baking dish and add dough crumbs on top. Bake for 15 minutes or more or until the crumbs turn golden brown.
  4. Add heavy whipping cream and vanilla to a medium-sized bowl and whip until soft peaks form.
  5. Let the apples cool for a couple of minutes and serve with a dollop of whipped cream.

Tip!

These baked apples can be served with whipped cream, full-fat crème fraiche, mascarpone, or a slice of cheddar. If you're allergic to nuts you can simply exclude them or substitute sunflower or sesame seeds to keep the crunch.

    Found this recipe a bit disappointing - cooked longer x10 mins and the apples were still hard. Will try again

    we love this recipe - I've made it three times. I slice the apples so I get 4 slices per apple. It's so yummy, keto apple crumble with cream, my favourite.

    So I have an apple tree and wanted to make a low carb dessert with the apples. Cane upon this one. At first I was super excited as I have a lot of apples. However did not like them at all. I wasn't even sure how to eat them. Pick up and pop one in my mouth , use a fork , a knife.?? ALl of the crublings of course fell off as I tried to eat them. Anyways I would waste me time on them again.
