Everyone loves apples, right? The problem with apples is that they are not at all recommended for the keto diet because of their high carb content.
One medium-sized apple has over 22g of net carbs, which is enough to pass your entire carb allotment when on a strict keto diet.
With that being said, if you are on a keto that is not so strict, you might be able to find space for apples in your day.
After all, apples do have a lot of great nutrients in them – so there is certainly a place for this fruit. Just be mindful of how often you have it, and how much, and you will be good to go!
So, if you love apples, and want to find ways to enjoy them while on a keto diet, you are in the right place.

7. Low Carb Blackcurrant And Apple Crumble
This is another recipe where you can substitute apples for zucchini, or go half-half for some added flavor. Zucchini are great keto foods as they are low in net carbs, and they are very versatile!
We should suggest using half zucchini and half apple for the filling in addition to the blackcurrants.
Doing this will ensure you get the flavor you want without using too much sugar. You could also add cinnamon into the mix to bring out the apple, but feel free to experiment with your own preferences.
8. Keto Apple Coffee Cake
Coffee cakes are cinnamon-topped cakes that are traditionally served alongside all our favorites drinks – coffee!

This will make sure you get the true apple flavor, while still keeping calories down.
In just over an hour, this recipe will be ready to go, so get working! Be sure to serve it with some fresh, keto-friendly ice cream.
11. Keto Apple Pie
This is another recipe that calls for chayote squash or zucchini as a substitute for apples. Follow the same notes and go half-half with the substitute and apples if you want that authentic apple flavor.

Apple has a special place in many of our hearts – this ingredient is wonderfully versatile and easy to work with.
From cakes and cobblers to bread and bars, there is definitely something for everyone to love in the above recipes.
When it comes to keto, it is crucial to remember that the use of almond and coconut flour is where the magic lies.
That, and the use of alternative sweeteners such as monkfruit, xylitol, or Swerve all help to keep the sugar and carb content down.
This is exactly what you want, and imperative to dishes with non-keto-friendly foods like apples.
You can still enjoy these fruits in moderation, but make sure that you take steps to cut carbs and sugar in all other places you can. That way, you can enjoy them guilt-free.
