Dessert can never truly be “healthy”. Even when made with whole ingredients, it will always be on the “excessive” side of the food spectrum, even if it’s the “healthy” spectrum. Thus, dessert should always be enjoyed in moderation.

Luckily, when desserts are made with things like fruits and nuts, even a little bit can go a long way – it’s very filling and nutrient dense!

This is extremely true for our Apple Almond Crumble recipe. It contains half an apple per serving, but you’d never know – it feels like you’re eating a MASSIVE bowl of dessert.

This recipe came about years ago, when my sister visited us and tried my husband’s aunt’s (that’s a mouthful) made-from-scratch mini apple pies. She was obsessed from the moment she took the very first bite.

Even I, not a big fan of cooked fruit, had to admit that they were pretty darn amazing! Long story short – ever since that day we’ve been talking about doing a low-carb dessert inspired by apple pie/apple crumble and that day has finally arrived. Yay!

The goal with this recipe, as with any other low-carb or healthy dessert, is to keep it as simple as humanly possible and to use whole, natural ingredients. So, 6 ingredients later (one of them being optional) we had a delicious dessert on our hands.

This Apple Crumble recipe can be made with or without butter. If you’re diary free – use coconut oil, if not – use butter.

So, without further ado – this is how you make a healthy apple crumble:

Gather these simple pantry ingredients:

  1. Apples
  2. Almonds
  3. Honey
  4. Coconut Oil
  5. Coconut Cream
  6. Cinnamon

Peel the apples and chop is small bite-sized pieces. Sauté the apple in a pan with a bit of coconut oil (or butter) until soft.

Add the cinnamon and coconut cream to the apples and set aside.

For the Keto Crumble Crust: Toss the almonds, honey, coconut oil (or butter) into a food processor and blitz until it’s relatively smooth.

Divide the apples into 4 bowls and top with the crumble.

Slide into the oven and bake the apple crumble for 15 minutes until it’s golden on top.

Serve immediately with a dollop of coconut cream and fresh strawberries.

Tips and Tricks:
1. While cooking the apples, I like to add a 1/4 cup of water to the pan if it gets too dry and repeat this until the apples are soft.
2. Technically, the crumb doesn’t need to be baked, so if you’re pressed for time, you can forego that part of the recipe. Baking it does add an extra touch of deliciousness so when you do have the time – bake it!

  1. This is not a Keto dessert. At over 21g carbs per serving this will almost definitely kick a person out of ketosis.

    What a delicious way to lighten up a dessert. I love that it is a small serving size too; perfect for my husband and me:) I can’t wait to give this a try!
