Gluten-free and Sugar-free Cinnamon Apple fritters
I adore cooked apples and fritters. But the recipes out there are often too greasy and sugary.
This recipe is gluten-free, sugar-free and oil-free, but still delicious! You can totally use normal flour if you aren’t gluten intolerant (remove xanthan gum) . The cinnamon and peanut butter sauce have wonderful sweet flavours so no needs to add any refined sugar. And I am using salted butter to cook the fritter instead of oil, which I personally prefer.
Makes: 6 fritters
Prep: 10 min Cook: 5 min Total: 15 min
1 medium apple, sliced
½ cup gluten free flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp xanthan gum
1 cup almond milk
1 tbsp peanut butter
2 tbsp water
Salter butter for cooking
1- In a bowl mix together flour, cinnamon, baking powder and xanthan gum. Add the egg and milk. Stir until combined.
2- In a small bowl, whisk the peanut butter and water together until smooth.
3- Melt the butter in a pan. Dip the apple slices in the batter and cook at medium heat for about 30 seconds on each side. Rest the fritters in kitchen paper for a few minutes to remove all excess butter.
Plate up and serve with the peanut butter sauce.
