Baked Apples : Low Carb


Anne Aobadia at Diet Doctor site says:
"Smells like apple pie... tastes like a dream. This easy take on low carb baked apples comes together in no-time. Don't forget the luscious finishing touch—a dollop of whipped cream"

Ingredients:
Four Servings
7g carb per serving
2 oz. / 50g butter, at room temperature
1 oz. / 30g pecans or walnuts
4 tablespoons coconut flour
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tart/sour apple
For serving
¾ cup / 175ml heavy/double whipping cream
½ teaspoon vanilla extract

Note:
These baked apples can be served with whipped cream, full-fat crème fraiche, mascarpone, or a slice of cheddar. If you’re allergic to nuts you can simply exclude them or substitute sunflower or sesame seeds to keep the crunch.

Please see cooking instructions here

Did you know ... Cinnamon is a popular spice often associated with baked treats, cereals and smoothies. However, you may not have considered that the teaspoon of cinnamon that you add to your baked treats may be doing you more good than you realized. Studies have shown that cinnamon could assist with boosting brain function, fighting cancer, aiding in digestion, supporting weight loss and fighting diabetes.

Incorporate cinnamon into your life by:
Adding a cinnamon quill into your morning tea, sprinkling half a teaspoon of ground cinnamon onto your homemade granola or adding a sprinkle of cinnamon into your next bowl of breakfast oatmeal.

It also adds flavour to the recipe featured above ...

All the best Jan

Much nicer than the plain baked apple. I'll have to try this one, thanks Jan.

Delicious recipe.
I love the combinations.
Cinnamon is an absolute favourite of mine.

I have coconut milk with a sprinkling of turmeric and cinnamon before I go to bed.
Always sleep well.

It looks delicious though I'm not a lover of cinnamon so I'd have to leave that out.

I love the smell of cinnamon but a friend of mine can't bear it. I have to tey and remember that come Christmas time and not having scented candles when she visits!

Me gusta el sabor de la tarta de manzana, muchas veces la he pedido como postre cuando he comido fuera de casa.

Cinnamon in a bake is one of the most comforting smells I can think of.

Chris Lally said...

Sounds like a great recipe. I will definitely try it.
A friend suggested sprinkling cinnamon on coffee grounds just prior to turning on the coffee maker. It's really good.

This looks so good and we will love it. A former neighbor shared with me once about the benefits of cinnamon, also.

Apple crisp was one of my favorite desserts before going Keto. I could still eat this on occasion now that I am maintaining and not losing weight. I saw a recipe the other day for mock apple crisp using zucchini for apples and I'm intrigued by that idea. Just not sure I want to attempt it. LOL It would take a lot of flavor to make me think zucchini is apple. Hmmm. Have a great weekend.
