This divine classic gets a Keto twist that starts with the flakiest pastry made with almond and coconut flour and moistened with egg, the best butter, and cream cheese. Once you have mastered this super simple keto pastry – don’t forget the xanthan gum for maximum flexibility – you will want to use it all the time. Of course, Keto Apple Pie doesn’t have apples in it as they are high-carb fruit; we have swapped in zucchini which holds spice beautifully and mimics that soft but firm texture.
Zucchini is packed full of goodness, boasting fiber, and improving digestion with its high water content. This recipe draws out the sweet flavor of this delightful fruit (yes, zucchinis are fruit!) with the addition of cinnamon which protects against heart disease and supports that all-important blood sugar control. We add allspice to elevate this low-carb dish to new heights and provide further health benefits, including better gut health and a dose of iron and calcium.
The filling for this Keto Apple Pie replaces sugar with erythritol, making it as sweet as apple pie, but without the sugar crash. You want to dice the zucchini into small uniform cubes and add the lemon for a sour complement to the sweetness of the erythritol. Because the pastry is gluten-free, it pays to make it the day before and rest it in the fridge overnight – or for as long as possible. When it’s time to roll it out, pop it between two sheets of baking paper to stop it from cracking.
