    Position a rack in the center of the oven and heat to 350 F. Generously grease 9-x 9-inch baking dish with butter. Set aside.

    To make the crumble topping, place the almond flour, coconut flour, granulated keto sweetener, and pumpkin pie spice in a medium bowl. Toss to combine.
  4. Step 4

    Using your fingers or a pastry blender, cut the cold butter into the flour mixture until pea-sized clumps form and the mixture is blended, but crumbly. Set aside.

    Place the zucchini in a separate medium bowl, then toss with the lemon juice, brown Swerve, cinnamon, and xanthan gum until the zucchini is well coated.
  6. Step 6

    Spread the zucchini mixture into an even layer in the prepared baking dish, then sprinkle the crumble topping all over top. Press the crumble mixture into zucchini so it is fully covered.

    Bake the "apple" crisp until golden brown on top and the zucchini is tender, about 45 minutes. If the top begins to brown too early, cover lightly with foil.
