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.

  3. 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.

    Good old necessity – came to the party again.

    They look scrummy.

  2. Cathy says:

    These are cooking right now. Have you tried freezing them? The recipe does make heaps!

  3. Cathy says:

    These were delicious. I didn’t peel the apples, and nobody complained. Used wholemeal flour and ordinary milk as we don’t have any allergies. Next time I’ll put in the apple juice concentrate to sweeten a tad, then won’t need anything no top. They took ages go took, but really delicious and will last a few days.

  4. Jo says:

    Yeah, I tend to make big batches of things – comes from being raised in a home where there were always extras to feed!!! You probably could freeze them, or just put them in the fridge and use them over the next couple of days for snacks. If you want them to cook quicker, just make them thinner (more milk). Glad you like them 🙂

  5. Thanks eating them right now! My 2yr old loves them… It’s a hit ! Thank you

    Yay! You’re welcome 🙂

  7. LonniB says:

    Yummo. Had these for brekky today (made them with macadamia’s) big hit. Thanks again Jo 🙂

  8. Jo Whitton says:

    Mmmmm, macadamias! Good idea, Lonni! 🙂

  9. Meg says:

    I don’t have a Thermomix so.I used an.electric beater and they are a bit dry. Any suggestions?

  10. Cassie says:

    Is there a way to make these grain free as well? My 8 month old loves them, but I try to avoid grains as much as I can. She is dairy, soy and gluten free due to allergies.

    • QuirkyJo says:

      Hi Cassie! One option is to try using coconut flour instead of the spelt/GF flour, but you’d only need to use about 1/4 the amount. If you give it a go, check the consistency after mixing all the ingredients (it will thicken more if left to stand for a couple of minutes) and then see if you need to add a little more coconut flour. Let us know how they turn out! 🙂

    Hi Jo, is the pre-soaked version also suitable with gf flour?
