Get ready to fall in love with breakfast all over again with these whimsical Apple Fritters! They are ready in flash and will surely fill your mornings with carnival of flavors!



1 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1/4 cup of granulated sugar

2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp of salt

1 1/2 tsp of cinnamon

1/3 cup of whole milk

2 large eggs

3 tbsp of applesauce

2 large Granny Smith or Honey Crisp apples, peeled, cored, and diced

Canola or vegetable oil for frying


2 cups of powdered sugar

1/4 cup of whole milk

1/2 tsp of pure vanilla extract


Start by combining flour, sugar baking powder, salt and cinnamon in a bowl. Then add milk, eggs and applesauce and mix everything together until blended. Next incorporate the apples into the mixture.

Now it’s time to heat up some oil in a pan to around 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Drop spoonfuls of the batter into the oil while spreading it out as you go. Cook each side until it turns golden brown.

Once cooked place the fritters on paper towels to drain any oil.

To prepare the glaze whisk together the milk, powdered sugar and vanilla extract. Dip each fritter into the glaze to ensure both sides are nicely coated.

Allow the fritters to air dry on a wire rack before indulging in your delicious homemade Apple Fritters!


Here are some simple tips to adjust the Apple Fritters recipe so that it becomes gluten free:

Flour: Opt for a gluten free flour blend. Look for brands like Bobs Red Mill or King Arthur Flour that offer gluten flours that can be substituted 1:1 for flour.

Baking Powder: Make sure you are using gluten free baking powder. Most brands available in the market are already gluten free. It’s always smart to check the label just to be safe.

Applesauce: While most applesauce brands are naturally free of gluten it’s essential to read the labels and avoid any added ingredients or potential cross-contamination with gluten.

By following these tips you’ll be able to enjoy delicious Apple Fritters without worrying about gluten!
