Vegan Apple Fritters Recipe

behind-the-curtain-dessert-challengeAnother month of the  Behind The Curtain Dessert Challenge. I didn’t want to skip this one since it’s apples and cinnamon… and I didn’t want to make ice cream.

vegan apple fritters-2It’s not new information to those who know me but I don’t like frying. I love fried foods but well, the act of frying foods in hot oil kind of intimidates me. A lot. So I avoid it. I figured if something was tasty enough and fried I should get off my butt to get it. But you can burn calories and still make a tasty fried treat. At least that’s what I’m thinking when I really wanted an apple fritter and didn’t feel like going to a donut shop.

vegan apple fritters-3I grew up around many a donut and I thought they were okay. I never went traditional I always went with an apple fritter if there was a choice while my mom always pulled the crueller card. Size does matter in my gluttonous view of the donut world so don’t make em skimpy.

    1. They were SO easy, even me, a frying dummy can make them! I used a cookie scoop to slowly place them in the hot oil. Pushed them around until they were golden and then drenched them in glaze. I was surprised they were so easy!

  2. My family is mostly meat and tater folk. But I bet they would gobble these up! I had never had almond milk until I went to a friend’s home, whose son is allergic to cow’s milk. It was good!
