I made these fritters for breakfast this morning (seeing there was no bread left and I hadn’t gotten around to making any buckwheat granola…) – they were very yummy and filling! And the recipe made heaps, so there’s plenty for snacking on later. (So if there’s only one or two of you, I suggest halving it!) For best results, (and to make the grains easier to digest), start the night before and use the ‘pre-soaked version’.
I just used a basic pancake recipe and added grated apple, oats, cinnamon and apple juice concentrate. If you’re gluten free you can use gluten free flour and quinoa flakes intead of the oats. Add more or less milk, depending on whether you prefer them thicker or thinner.
Apple Oat Fritters
- 4 apples, peeled, cored and quartered
- a handful of raw pecans/walnuts (optional)
- 250g spelt flour, or plain gluten free flour
- 100g rolled oats, or quinoa flakes for gf version
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp fine sea salt
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 2 large eggs
- 350g rice/almond milk
- 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
- 2 Tblspns macadamia oil or extra virgin olive oil
- 2 Tblspns raw honey
- 2 Tblspns apple juice concentrate (optional - sweeten to taste)
- Grate apples in Thermomix, 3 sec/sp 5 (or by hand).
- Add rest of ingredients and mix on reverse speed 2 until well mixed (may need to use spatula to help it along).
- Melt a tablespoon of ghee or coconut oil in frying pan and cook fritters over low heat, turning over when starting to bubble. Add 1 Tbspn ghee/oil between each batch, to make the outside crispy.
- Serve plain, or drizzled with a little apple juice concentrate or pure maple syrup.
- Mix the flour, oats, rice/almond milk and vinegar in the Thermomix and leave to soak overnight. The next morning, add the apples and walnuts and chop 3 sec/sp 5, then add remaining ingredients and mix on reverse speed 2 until well mixed.
