Wanna create a low carb apple crisp....help!

OK - I have a crisper full of apples that the kids have ignored, so I made them a big pan of apple crisp.......which they just love.

As it baked, and then came out of the oven, I got to wondering - I can eat an apple or two a week with no problems....so how can I create a lc crisp for me to enjoy??

I purchased some brown Sugar Twin to use - but I struggle with the topping part. I normally use oats, flour, sugar, cinnamon and melted butter. So I thought I could use some chopped nuts and almond flour - but what else? Would the oats (not the instant kind, but the rolled oats) be ok? My weight loss buddy does South Beach, and she can have those on that plan. I checked the package, and it would be something like 10g for a 1/3 cup, so if I used 1/2 a cup, over the whole crisp, combined with nuts & almond flour - how bad could that be??

Any other suggestions?

This strusel topping from Erin's Lower Carb Impossible Apple Pie Updated might work for an apple crisp. It is really good too:

Streusel Topping:

1/2 cup Carkbquik
1/4 cup fine to coursely chopped Pecans
1/4 cup granular Splenda
Dash of ground nutmeg and cinnamon
1/2 tsp blackstrap molasses
2 tbsp Firm light butter

Just sprinkle over the apples like an apple crisp topping.

That sounds good - although I'm unable to find CarbQuick here in Ontario any more.....the one store that carried oodles of LC stuff quit carrying it!

I think I'll have to search for some soon!

I do lc apple crisp quite often for the family. I just add a bit of sweeteners to the apples along with cinnamon. For the topping, I mix CQ, walnuts, oats, sweeteners with a little butter. If you can’t get CQ, you could try just the oats or use some oat flour if you do OK with that.

So here's what I came up with:

I used 4 apples (so I'm going with 4 portions total for this) and mixed them with the brown Sugar Twin and cinnamon.

For the topping, I used the Sugar Twin, and about 1/4 cup each of ground almonds, sliced almonds (the paper thin ones), chopped pecans and the rolled oats, and some cinnamon. I mixed that with about 1/4 cup melted butter, and sprinkled it on top of the apples.

Not huge amounts of topping, but enough to give it the sweet, brown, crunch I love about apple crisp!

Not sure about the carb count - probably around 15g or so for the serving because of the apple. I could even do without the rolled oats - the nuts worked great!

Low Carb Apple Crisp

I experimented the recipe, and this is what I came up with. I think it tastes Yummy so you may want to give it a try.

4 Cups peeled, cored and sliced apples
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon reserve the half tsp for the crisp
1/4 tsp of salt and a pinch for the crisp
1/2 Cup of water
1 Cup of splenda
1/4 Cup soy flour
1/4 Cup Oat flour
1/4 Cup almond flour
1 stick of butter cubed and left to soften

Butter a 10 inch deep dish pie dish, mix apples with cinnamon and salt and place in pie dish. Pour the water over the apples.

Mix together the rest of the dry ingredients, and cut the butter into it till its crumbled. Sprinke over the apples and bake at 350 degrees untill golden.
Serves 6 Enjoy!

Cool.. I was thinking the same thing. I wanted to make an apple cranberry pie, but without using apples! I wondered if a squash could be successfully substituted. I think I'll do it without telling anyone and see what they say.

Chayotes do make a yummy crisp! I modified the above recipe (thanks Pocahontas) with an oat flour topping to make it more like a HC crisp. The topping is totally flexible.

Sadly, I do not know what a chayotes is. But I do know how to look it up! And I am going to because I will have an apple cranberry pie for Christmas. I'll use a pecan crust and some of those coyotes (hoooowl!) I mean chayotes!

I have made several Apple Crisp using the chayotes - I have three in the fridge right now and will probably make some fried apples. If you eat a piece of raw chayote, it tastes like an apple, so its perfect for any apple dish.

"Apple" Crisp Pie

I combined two of Linda's recipes to make this (yeah Linda, you're the best):

Linda's Low Carb Lisa's Strawberry Cobbler
and
Linda's Low Carb Jicama Apples

"Apple" Pie Crisp

FILLING JICAMA "APPLES"
1 medium jicama, about 1 pound
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 teaspoon blackstrap molasses
3 tablespoon granular Splenda or equivalent liquid Splenda
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2-1 teaspoon cinnamon, or to taste

IMPORTANT: You must plan ahead to make this recipe. The jicama needs to be frozen for at least a couple days before you can turn it into "apples". The freezing step is very important or the jicama will never get soft no matter how long you cook it or at least not within a reasonable time. Freezing causes the jicama to turn quite soft in its raw state.

Peel the jicama and cut into manageable sized chunks. Thinly slice the jicama into pieces about the size of apple slices. It doesn't matter if they're actually shaped like apple slices as long as they're about the right thickness. They should be about 1/8" thick and no thicker than 1/4". Put the sliced jicama into an airtight freezer container and freeze for at least a day or two or until you need them. To use them, you'll need to thaw them in the refrigerator overnight then drain off any liquid.

Put defrosted/drained jicama and all other ingredients in a sauce pan and warm up. Add to a pie dish (sprayed with butter spray).

Topping:
1/4 cup granular Splenda or equivalent liquid Splenda
1/2 cup butter, softened (1 stick)
2 eggs
2 ounces almond flour, 1/2 cup
1 teaspoon vanilla
Pinch salt, optional, if using unsalted butter

In a medium bowl, beat the butter, eggs and Splenda with a fork until creamy. It will look curdled. Mix in the almond flour* and vanilla with a fork. Dollop by large spoonfuls over the jicama. It will spread while baking so don't be too fussy. Bake at 375º for 30 minutes.

*I make my own almond flour by putting unsalted almonds in my Ninja blender.

Allow to cool briefly and cut into 8 slices. top with sugar free whipped topping.



I used the liquid splenda and using this site:

http://www.nal.usda.gov/fnic/foodcomp/search/

calculated 2.2 net carbs per slice when sliced into 8 pieces (amount pictured)

Check out this thread of Kevin's. He has an "apple" strawberry crisp recipe using zucchini for the apples. It is #7 on this thread. The whole thread is very interesting also.

So gals ... for those of us for whom chayote is expensive (hahahaha here in New England), any thoughts on another squash that might work .. considering that it is fall here and the local ones are everywhere ...

Thinking of making a chayote crisp for Thanksgiving (but nut-free as there are allergies involved .. so either carbquik or cocnut flour) ..

Any thoughts on winter squash?!
