Apple filling:

  • 3 small zucchini squash (475g)
  • 2 ½ tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • ¼ cup granulated erythritol
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ cup water
  • ½ tsp xanthan gum
  • Dash of salt

For the Crisp:

  • 4 oz pecans
  • 1/3 cup almond flour
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp brown sweetener
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • Dash of ground cloves (optional)
  • Dash of nutmeg (optional)
  • 4 tbsp butter


Preheat your oven to 350F.

Make the “apple” filling:

Peel, remove seeds and dice your zucchini into ¼ inch cubes. In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, add your zucchini, lemon juice, butter, and erythritol. Cook for around 5 minutes, then add water, cinnamon, and salt. Cover and cook for around 15 minutes, then add (sprinkle) xanthan gum and stir until it is thickened. You can cook for an additional 1-2 minutes if you think it needs to be thicker. Take off the heat and add to a small baking dish.

Make the crisp:

In a food processor add your pecans until chopped into small pieces (should look like almond flour). Using a large bowl add all of your ingredients, except for the butter. Combine well. Add the butter in small pieces and press with your knuckles until well incorporated.

Crumble the crisp dough on top of the “apple” filling in an even layer and bake for 25 minutes or until crisp layer starts to brown.

Let cook for at least 10 minutes or until crisp layer hardens. Filling inspo from @karlagoesketo.
