Easy Keto Apple Pie Recipe

When something (or someone) is compared to apple pie, the insinuation is that it (or they) are wholesome. That is exactly how we describe this apple pie. Homemade and hearty, we did not skimp on whole ingredients here. This pie is the antithesis of keto-friendly, but it’s good for the soul. Fresh apples are in season, and apple pie is arguably the best way to enjoy that autumnal flavor. We add to the nostalgic seasonality with cranberries, walnuts, and cinnamon, but you can add your own nostalgic flair.
