And now it’s time for one of the simplest, most delicious ketogenic desserts one can eat.
Every baked apple recipe I have found online calls for sugar and/or brown sugar. I don’t know why, because unless you’re using Granny Smith apples, they are plenty sweet already. Especially if you’re not used to eating tons of sugar, and fruit is your main source of sweetness.
To make scrumptious baked apples, all you need to add is a little flavor (read: spice and fat!). They are the simplest thing, really. And delicious.
A warm, comforting bowl of sweet tartness to enjoy after a hearty meal, preferably with a steaming cup of tea.
Have I convinced you yet? Then here goes:
Baked Apples (Keto-Friendly)
4-5 small to medium apples, cut into bite-sized chunks
1 tsp. cinnamon per whole apple
1 Tbsp. butter per whole apple
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Melt butter in a small bowl; stir in cinnamon. Pour over apples and stir to combine. Place apple chunks in a greased baking pan (stoneware or glass works best). Bake 15-20 minutes or until golden brown and soft, stirring once or twice to heat evenly. Serve warm. Makes 3-4 dessert-sized portions.
P.S. You can do the exact same thing with pineapples!
Not as keto-friendly because pineapples have a lot more sugar than apples … but delectable. Especially if you use the pineapple right when it’s at its height of ripeness, dark yellow and sweet and juicy.
Mmmm. My mouth is watering now….
