Making sugar-free desserts are totally still the rage and as we approach the full swing of the holidays, this quick and easy Ninja Foodi apple cranberry crisp is a great way to treat anyone with a diabetic-friendly sweet. This does use a touch of maple syrup but there are plenty of sugar-free maple syrups out there if you’re in need of a truly sugar-free dessert.
I love the combination of fall fruit and tart cranberries. Cranberries are low in natural sugars and are found frozen if they aren’t available fresh in your area. The toppings are also low in carbs so you could get away with having a small amount and stick to your keto lifestyle if your diet allows for a bit of fruit.
- corn starch
- maple sugar
- lime juice
- unsweetened shredded coconut
- ground almonds
- coconut flour
- melted coconut oil
- maple syrup
Cut The Fruit
I suggest a ratio of fruit but feel free to use any combination in any proportion. Cut them up into the same size a the cranberries and toss them with starch, maple sugar, and lime juice. Put them in the bottom of your Insta-Pan (7″ springform pan).
Make The Topping
Then comes the topping. Easy! Combine all of the rest of the ingredients together and spoon them over the top of the fruit evenly.
Cook in The Ninji
This is where the magic happens. Put your sugar-free crisp onto a rack in the Ninja Foodi. Don’t forget to cover it with tin foil. The Foodi is really good at cooking this apple crisp. Cover it for about 25 minutes. Uncover it and cook it until the fruit in the middle can be pierced easily with a knife, about 15 more minutes. Enjoy with some sugar-free ice cream warm or cold!
