It is not often I get this excited about one of my gluten-free recipes. First, let me explain what apple raisin fritters are. They are something like mini donuts except much better. Why, because they are packed with fresh apples, raisins, cinnamon, vanilla and very little maple syrup for sweetness. These gluten-free fritters are amazing 😉 The texture of these delicious morsels is, soft and pillowy on the inside and a little crispy on the outside, oozing with apples, raisins and cinnamon. I promise you, they are the BEST gluten-free fritters. The wonderful thing about this recipe is, they are super easy to make with ingredients you probably already have in your pantry. When I made them this morning, all it took is 30 minutes and I had 32 gluten-free apple raisin fritters on a plate. I have added simple to make maple cinnamon glaze for extra goodness, but they are delicious just as is. You can also sprinkle them with some fine grain coconut sugar if you like instead of the glaze. How can something like fresh apples, raisins and cinnamon made into mini donuts not be heavenly? Please, if you make them let me know what you thought. I always love to hear from you!

Ingredients

  • 1¾ cup white rice flour
  • 1/3 cup tapioca flour/starch
  • 1 Tbsp. baking powder (preferably aluminum-free)
  • 2 tsp. GF ground cinnamon

  • ¾ cups milk non-dairy milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 2 Tbsp. Extra virgin olive oil or avocado oil
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups peeled & finely chopped apples (about 2 large apples)
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • MAPLE CINNAMON GLAZE
  • ¼ cup non-dairy milk
  • 2 Tbsp. Pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp. GF ground cinnamon
  • Instructions

  • In a large bowl combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt
  • In a separate bowl whisk together milk, eggs, maple syrup, olive/avocado oil and vanilla.
  • Add egg mixture, apples, and raisins to dry ingredients and stir to combine
  • Heat about 2 inches of vegetable oil over medium heat. Using a cookie scoop or a teaspoon drop batter into hot oil. The fritters should be golden brown when cooked, about 1 1/2 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels
  • For the glaze, whisk all the ingredients together and drizzle over the fritters
  • Tip; before you use the cookie scoop or teaspoon dip it in oil, this way the batter won't stick to the scoop/teaspoon
