Apple Pie Fritters

Apple Pie Fritters

Think donuts are too complicated to DIY? Think again! Unlike yeast donuts, fritters use baking powder instead of yeast, meaning you get hot and fresh donuts on the table in 30 minutes or less! With a touch of our Apple Pie Sugar, these fritters are the perfect mashup between apple pie and the donut shop classic.

Apple Pie Sugar is a sweet and spicy blend of coconut sugar, cinnamon, vanilla, nutmeg, and ginger - perfect for topping oatmeal, apple fritters, gingerbread cookies, or whipped cream!

Recipe created by Micah Siva (@noshwithmicah)

Makes: 8


1 cup all purpose flour
4 tablespoons Apple Pie Sugar, divided 
¼ teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ cup milk,
or non dairy alternative
1 large egg
2-3 peeled apples (about 1 ½ cup) diced (such as Granny Smith)
1 quart vegetable oil, for frying


Line a baking sheet with paper towels. 

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, 1 tablespoon Apple Pie Sugar, salt, and baking powder.

In a small bowl, whisk together the milk and egg. Add to the dry mixture, and stir until just combined. 

Gently fold in the apples.

In a heavy, tall sided skillet, heat ½ - ¾ inch of vegetable oil over medium high heat. Check the temperature of the oil by dropping a small piece of batter into the oil. If it sizzles immediately, it’s ready to fry.

Drop ¼ cup of the batter into the oil, cooking for 3-4 minutes per side, or until golden.

Transfer to the lined baking sheet, and sprinkle with remaining 3 tablespoons Apple Pie Sugar. Serve immediately.
