Keto Apple Pie {Ketogenic Diet}

 The one food Owen was upset about not having for Thanksgiving was apple pie. He kept hanging out at the table when I was making them and trying to "help".  I'd seen some "apple pie" recipes for the ketogenic diet before, but they were mostly just baked apples with lots of butter and cream. I knew my little guy would want crust. So, I came up with this recipe.
 Remember the Ketogenic Diet should only be done under medical supervision and you must follow your (or your child's) prescription. Do not use Owen's recipe exactly unless you have exactly the same calorie and ratio needs. If you need help converting this recipe to your requirements SEE HERE.

Keto Apple Pie
263 calories at a 3.01:1 ratio

Apple, raw -without skin  sliced thinly 29g
cinnamon, ground .5g
Truvia sweetener 3.5g
butter 3g

Melt the butter in a small ramekin dish. Mix apples, Truvia, and cinnamon together. Pour into pan and bake at 350F until apples are soft (how long depends on how thin the apple slices are).

Meanwhile mix together 
butter, melted 4g
egg, raw mixed well 7g
Ketocuisine 5:1 baking mix 26g
with water as necessary to make a slightly pourable dough.

When apples are cooked through, pour the dough over top (scrape, scrape, scrape) and put back in the oven for about 10-15 minutes, until the top is slightly browned. Cool to desired temperature and serve!

For a higher ratio you could add whipped cream on top before serving.
