Looking for some pie this fall but don’t want the carb-filled crust that usually comes along? These apple pie fat bombs taste just like the pie filling! Low-carb, keto, sugar-free, Paleo, gluten-free, grain-free.
Apple pie on a keto diet? You thought that was impossible, didn’t you?! These little apple pie fat bombs are just 5 net carbs each! That’s right, I just gave you permission to eat (a small amount of) apple while following a low-carb diet! Hooray!
Plus these are so buttery, sweet and spicy, that I promise you will not miss the crust that a traditional pie would offer. The butter provides so much flavor that complements the sweetness, and the spice of the cinnamon and vanilla.
So much goodness in just a few bites!
Plus, the longer you let the apples cook, the more caramelized they become. They become incredibly flavorful, and the sweetness really comes out. I found that by caramelizing my apples, I did not need to add any extra sweetener to my fat bombs.
To make these delicious apple pie fat bombs, you will want to start by adding the butter to a pan over medium heat. Add in diced apple chunks, and cook until softened.
As I mentioned above, you can allow them to cook longer, until they turn a golden brown. This makes them even sweeter, and more flavorful.
Once the apples are cooked to your liking, remove from the heat, and add in the remaining ingredients. You will definitely want to add cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla extract or vanilla bean powder.
If you want to get fancy, you can also add in a splash of maple extract, for an even bigger autumn punch.
If you don’t mind a mildly sweet fat bomb, you can simply stop here. If you want your fat bombs sweeter, feel free to add in some additional sweetener.
I recommend approximately 1 tablespoon of granulated sweetener, but you can go harder if you want. Simply add enough to satisfy your sweet tooth.
Simply portion the ingredients evenly into six silicone baking cups or into a fat bomb mold. Refrigerate or freeze for several hours, or until solid.
