Low Carb Vegan Apple Pie Bites

I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned this before, but apple pie is my absolute favorite dessert, ever. If you told me that I could only eat apple pie for the rest of my life, I think I’d actually be pretty okay. Of course, apple pie isn’t exactly keto-friendly. It’s also not usually vegan. Then, there’s the issue of traditional apple pie being super time consuming, and sometimes I really don’t feel like doing anything more than turning on the blender and calling it a day. So, I decided to make some vegan keto apple pie bites to satisfy that need, while also being low carb and low effort.

In reality, these are fat bombs, but I like calling them apple pie bites because I feel like it’s more representative of how they taste. Plus, it’s way more appealing to reach for some “low carb apple pie bites” for breakfast or dessert than it is to grab a “fat bomb.” But still, the macronutrient profile of these is pretty great, especially considering they utilize actual apples. Not only do these bites contain some medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) for quick energy, but they’ve also got the omega-3 fatty acids from the flaxseed to balance out the 6s in the coconut oil and walnuts  (if you want to learn more about balancing your omegas on a vegan keto diet, check out this post!).

Notes on Making Low Carb Vegan Apple Pie Bites:

  • Yes, these use real apples, but because it’s a small amount divided over twelve little fat bombs, the carbs are really minimal.
  • I use freeze dried apples instead of dehydrated or fresh because there is much less moisture, and they last a long time in the pantry (which is nice if you use them infrequently).
  • If you want these to taste even more apple-y, doubling the amount of apple (to 1 whole ounce) only adds 1.2g of net carbs! I think it’s worth it, to be totally honest, but figured I’d leave that decision up to you guys. 😉
  • It’s important to use melted or at least very soft coconut oil, otherwise these will be an absolute pain to blend up.
  • The texture is really up to you – I like having little bits of walnuts and apple still intact, but if you want them totally smooth, just process a bit longer.
  • I actually like to store these in the fridge, so they are less hard and a little more pastry-like (in my mind).

Ingredients

  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup ground flax seeds
  • 1/2 oz (~14g) freeze dried apples
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • Liquid stevia, to taste

Instructions

  1. Melt the coconut oil until it is liquid, or at least very soft.
  2. Add the walnuts and coconut oil to a blender and process until decently mixed. You can still have chunks. Add in flax seeds, vanilla and liquid stevia and process until relatively smooth (again, walnut chunks are fine and add some texture).
  3. Stop the blender, and crumble in the freeze dried apple. Process until the desired texture is reached.
  4. Portion these out into silicon molds or a muffin pan. Freeze, and enjoy.

    What’s the best alternative to walnuts? I can’t eat walnuts or pecans, but everything else is good to go. These sound delicious!

      Hi! This is a great question – you could definitely use almonds here instead! Sunflower seeds would also work 🙂

    I used half walnuts and half almonds.

    These are criminally good!!! I’m almost afraid to make them again, they’re so addictive.

      I’m so glad you like them! Haha, I try to keep them in the freezer when I make them so that there’s at least a little bit of a barrier to immediate consumption.
