Mmmm….keto strawberry crumble! WITH vanilla ice cream!
Seriously though, this was the most fun I’ve had cooking in weeks.
Super easy to throw together, the payoff far exceeded the time and effort it took to make this low carb strawberry crumble – and if that isn’t winning at keto desserts then I don’t know what is!
Now that it’s warming up and greening up, I enjoyed setting the photo shoot for this strawberry crumble outside on the picnic table of our rental. Maybe it will inspire you to make this for some friends and enjoy it in your own yard.
There’s something about eating dessert outside that makes it feel like an occasion, even when it’s a casual thing. This keto strawberry crumble is no exception – but no matter where you choose to eat it, I promise you’re going to enjoy every bite!
I kept the ingredients minimal in this keto strawberry crumble, because to me the entire point is to highlight the berries or whatever other fruit you might substitute. For that reason I only sweetened the strawberries lightly and put a hint of vanilla extract in there.
This low carb dessert is baked just long enough for the topping to crisp up, the fruit to soften slightly, and the flavors to concentrate – leaving the fruit texture intact so you don’t end up with a pile of tasty mush.
Keto Strawberry Crumble FAQS
What is a crumble?
A crumble is exactly what it sounds like – a fruit dessert with a streusel like topping “crumbled” over it. For this version I used my Keto Lemon Shortbread Cookie dough as the topping.
Can I use other fruits in this keto crumble?
This keto strawberry crumble can be customized by adding rhubarb to the strawberry mixture, or even replacing the strawberries with another type of berry or summer fruit. If adding rhubarb, I recommend increasing the sweetener by 1 tablespoon.
Can this low carb crumble be made nut free?
Yes! While my shortbread cookie dough is made with almond flour, you can substitute sunflower seed flour in my recipe, or replace it with a cookie recipe that is already nut free like this one from Sugar Free Londoner.Print
