Looking for a delicious and healthy dessert option? Look no further than this irresistible Apple Lemon Pie recipe! Made with keto-approved ingredients, this scrumptious pie is perfect for those watching their sugar intake or trying to maintain a low-carb lifestyle.

To start, gather all of your ingredients and preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. For the crust, blend together almond flour, coconut flour, psyllium husk powder, baking powder, and a pinch of salt in a bowl. Then, add in melted butter, egg, and a touch of stevia and mix well until a smooth dough forms.

Next, roll out the dough and place it into a greased pie dish. Using a fork, prick the dough several times and bake for 12-15 minutes or until lightly browned. In the meantime, prepare your filling by slicing up fresh apples and tossing them with lemon juice, lemon zest, cinnamon, and nutmeg.

Once your crust is done baking, remove it from the oven and let it cool a bit. Then, spoon your apple filling into the crust and even it out. Bake for an additional 20-25 minutes until the apples are soft and the filling is bubbly.

But wait, there’s more! Top off your delicious creation with a killer crumb topping made of almond flour, butter, coconut flour, cinnamon, and sugar-free maple syrup. Bake a final 10-15 minutes until the crumb is lightly golden.
