Low Carb Apple Crisp



I love this low carb apple crisp! I will be making it for my guest on Thanksgiving and wanted to share it with you all.
The main ingredient is Chayote and it will be the ingredient we use for the apples. I grew up eating Chayote (Christophene) in salads and low-mien and other dishes. Chayote has a mild apple flavor and with the help of the apple pie spice it makes this dish my new favorite low carb desert. So I hope you all enjoy this recipe.

1 cup  Bob Red Mill Almond flour
3/4 cup carbalose flour

Chop the pecans in the food processor then add the Carbalose flour,  Almond flour, Oat fiber, Cinnamon and Sugar.

    Could I use more almond flour as trying to go grain free. So something I can sub for the carbalose and oat flour? And any subs on the apple juice, I don’t use Splenda and that. Thinking of maybe for Thanksgiving but we’ll see :)

    Thank You for your response .. Hope all is going well with your program.. I had one more question How many carbs do you allow yourself during Induction ? I found these low carb tortilla’s and they are 4 carbs per tortilla.. wonder if I can eat those during induction ?

    Hey Dawn,

    This is something I am currently working to update. Also depending on the brand you use for your ingredients the carb counts may be different than mine: )

    I am just starting on a low carb diet and I was wondering why you don’t give the carb counts for your recipes. I love some of your recipes very creative.
