making the almond flour crust

How to make the almond flour crust:

You’ll want to blend all of the crust ingredients in a large bowl. Then pour out the bowl and mix until it a dough-like consistency is achieved.

Press the dough evenly into a pie pan.

Bake for about 10 minutes in a 325 degree F oven, covering the edges with aluminum foil. Set aside as the filling is made.

Does this really taste like apple crisp?

Yes! It’s pretty crazy to think about, but the zucchini is slightly sweet and takes on the flavor from the sweetener and spices! We had friends that had no clue they were eating anything other than apples!

Do I have to peel the zucchini?

Yes, you’ll want to peel the zucchini for a couple of reasons. The texture is going to be better and more like an apple peeled. The other reason is if you don’t peel them, they’ll show up dark green in your crumble, and it won’t look like apples.

How can I thicken this up?

If you notice your zucchini is letting off too much liquid, you can drain it before adding the crumble topping or sprinkle in about 1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum over the filling and mix well.
