Fried Apples with Cinnamon Almond Glaze

Fried Apples is nothing new, but when you’re on the keto diet, being able to get something sweet from time to time really keeps me going. I slathered it with some cinnamon butter sauce (so much butter with the keto diet, I love it!) and voila! I got a keto-friendly dessert!

I’m about halfway through my Operation Dad Bod Month 1. Eating on the keto diet can make you a little crazy from time to time if you’re a carbs sugar lover. It’s all the more reason to get creative from time to time. Personal Trainer food includes these awesome butter sauces that are all amazing. One that I couldn’t wrap my head around was the cinnamon explosion.

Its been a rough month too with the diet, I’ve been battling a cold, and we’re down to one car at the moment, so it’s been hard for me to get to the gym outside of doing some pushups/burpees during the day. But fortunately, I’ve still been shedding off the pounds. I haven’t weighed myself recently, but I feel so much better in my clothes and that’s what matters!

But I’ve found out it goes great in coffee! And with the one apple a day I tried getting a little creative with it. Frying the apple, in a a little butter in the skillet, along with Cinnamon Explosion Sauce makes the house smell amazing!

Then I took the amount of nuts that you’re allowed to eat per day with Personal Trainer Food, ground them up in a food processor. I then sprinkled them over the apples while frying. It gives the fried apples nice breaded/cobbler type of texture that hits the spot!

Honestly, even if you’re not on the Personal Trainer food program, you’ve gotta try out these butter sauces. Especially if you’re on a high fat/protein low carb/sugar diet. It keeps you sane, and they’re freaking amazing!
