Health Highlights


1 cup chopped Apple
1/2 cup Almond flour/meal, Bob's Red Mill
2 tbsp Coconut flour
1 tbsp Chia seeds (preferably white chia seeds)
1/4 cup Coconut milk, sweetened
5 tbsp Maple syrup, pure (or Lankanto or coconut sugar)
1 medium egg Egg (pastured)
3/4 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Vanilla extract, pure
1/2 tsp Baking soda
1 tsp Cream of tartar (or lemon juice)
1 pinch Sea Salt
108 ml Coconut oil (1/4 cup and 4 tbsp)
3 tbsp Coconut butter


For the fritters:

Preheat oven to 350*F.

Dice apple into small pieces and sauté over medium heat with a dab of coconut oil, ¼ teaspoon cinnamon, and ¼ teaspoon vanilla. Stir frequently and cook until apple is well cooked, about 7 minutes.

Mix almond flour, coconut flour, chia seeds, coconut milk, 3 tbsp maple syrup, remaining cinnamon and vanilla, baking soda and salt. Then mix in the cooked apple pieces or (save a couple tablespoons of apple for garnish).

Heat up a clean dry sauté pan over medium heat. Add in 2 tablespoons of coconut oil. When oil is hot, spoon in a glob of dough to create a small chunky apple pancake. Try to keep the fritters on the smaller side so they are easy to manage and flip. Cook fritter for about 1 to 2 minutes per side.

After cooking each side for around 2 minutes, set each fritter on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Garish each fritter with a few pieces of apple by pressing it into the top once the fritters are on the baking sheet.

A good technique is cooking 3 fritters at a time in a pan with 2 tablespoons of coconut oil.

After frying, bake fritters for 10 to 15 minutes at.

For the icing:

While fritters are baking prepare icing recipe.

Soften 3 tbsp coconut oil and 3 tbsp coconut butter over low heat.

Stir in 2 tbsp maple syrup. Drizzle over hot fritters right out of the oven.

When fritters come out of the oven ice them with icing.
