I don't know about my other Keto friends but I have been MISSING APPLES. So, I needed to come up with a recipe that would give me a taste without all the carbs. I was also wanting to taste something sweet. I haven't really had cravings for sweet but a treat every now and then is nice to have but if the recipe is tasty there goes the need to feel as though you should "cheat". That's my philosophy anyway. I'm not "deprived". I am satisfied.
Fall is in the air and apple season is upon is here in North Georgia. Scores of people are driving over to our neighbors in Ellijay for pumpkins and apples. These Apple Almond Keto Sour Cream Muffins are the perfect way to celebrate fall. The base of the muffin is cake like and moist with a crunchy topping that has the zest of an apple mixed in. This is a two step backing process and it's worth every effort made. I even shared this with non-keto friends and they loved it too. It has a secret ingredient that makes it all come together like grandma's pound cake. Did I just say "cake"?!
Tender Apple Almond Cake topped with a crunch streussal and a sweet almond glaze! Keto, low carb, Atkins friendly and gluten free to boot!

I love to cook but only if the meals are healthy, easy, and yummy. .
