Keto Apple Turnover is a take on the original baked good, but instead of using apples, I’ve created the same taste using Chayote (Or Choko), which is unbelievably delicious!
I remember coming home from school as a kid and cooking my favorite afternoon snack. Boiled apples in sugar and cinnamon. Whoa! it was so good. Little did I know that I was consuming so much sugar all in one hit.
At school, they teach you how to make certain recipes. At Ferny Grove State High School, they teach you how to make baked apples and blancmange, which was like a milk dessert made from cornstarch.
Does anyone else hate the taste of apples? does it sometimes make you feel sick? Baking apples were one of my favorite pass times. Then I discovered banana smoothies… that’s a whole other topic.
The Ketogenic diet doesn’t allow apple, because its too high in fructose, which is the sugar found in fruit. Its especially bad on the ketogenic diet as Fructose refills your liver glycogen first, which is the hardest to remove for your body. Having a handful of real apples will make your ketogenic diet turn sour very quickly.
What I didn’t realise was that the texture of apple was more important than the taste of apple. So I set about creating baked apples as I used to as a kid.
Sure enough, when mixed with erythritol and mixed spice (or pumpkin spice), this vegetable is BETTER than apple for cooking, because it holds its texture when boiled, meaning that you don’t get apple mush, you get perfect apple pieces. It’s such a pleasure to cook with.
Tasha from KetoGasm also made a Keto Apple Cobler here on my website a little while ago, plus there is a perfect apple crumble recipe coming soon, so keep your eyes peeled for those if you’re looking to create some perfect mock apple keto recipes in the future.
