This is an incredible dessert and the recipe was given to me by one of my dearest pts!! I have made a few “tweeks” so feel free to do the same!! This dessert does have some carbs in it, as we know that 1 medium sized apple has approx 17-18 net carbs in it and the recipe calls for 6 of them, but it a very good alternative to traditional apple pies and other desserts!!! Great for special occasions!!!
5-6 medium apples
lemon juice (1/2 lemon squeezed or just lemon juice in a bottle if thats easier)
2 packets of splenda
4 tbsp of butter
apple pie spice
splash of vanilla
1/2-3/4 cup of almond meal
apple pie spice
1 tbsp of butter
1-2 tbsp of coconut oil
1-2 tbsp of splenda brown sugar
Peel, core, and slice 5-6 medium apples
toss apples in lemon juice (1/2 lemon- squeezed) or I just kinda covered the apples and mixed it together to make sure they were barely coated
mix apples w/ the 2 pkts of splenda (again I don’t have packets so I just sprinkled some over the top from my bag of splenda, you can use stevia or truvia as well). probably about 1 tbsp
stir in splenda, 4 tbsp of melted butter, and apple pie spice to taste (I just sprinkled over mixture stirred and tasted- a light dusting over the entire batch of apples)
Mix all of the above until the apples are well coated ( I mixed in a mixing bowl with my hands to make sure everything was well tossed- make sure to wash hands prior :) !)
Pour apple pie mixture in greased pie pan
Instructions for topping:
Mix following ingredients with hands: a splash of vanilla extract ( I did about a lid full), 1/2-3/4 cup of almond meal, apple pie spice to taste, 1 tbsp of butter (room temp), 1-2 tbsp of coconut oil ( I used 2), 1-2 tbsp of splenda brown sugar (less if on greater carb restriction)
Sprinkle mixture over top of pie, if there is not enough mixture to cover entire apple mixture slightly- sprinkle extra almond meal over top to your liking (does make it look a little prettier :)- can mix with more butter or coconut oil if desired, but does fine just sprinkled over top by itself.
Original recipe called for : 2 tbsp coconut flour, 1/4 cup almond meal, and 2 tbsp of flax meal but I only had almond meal so I did ALL almond meal (increased to 1/2-3/4 cup of almond meal and left the coconut flour and flax meal out)
Bake at 375 for 30 min or until apples are good and soft!
Serve with whipping cream.
This is absolutely delicious!!! and a GREAT alternative when you are wanting something for that sweet tooth. Again it is NOT extremely low carb due to the apples and splenda brown sugar but it is a MUCH healthier option than original apple pie and it is delectable!!!! I have served it to many friends and family and it truly is a HIT!!!!
