Easy Whole Wheat Apple Fritters

apple frittersEasy Whole Wheat Apple Fritters

I made these for breakfast one Sunday morning, and my kids asked for them all week long.  They were incredibly easy to make and tasted amazing.


1¼ cup whole wheat flour (I use fresh-ground soft white wheat)
⅓ cup sugar
1 tsp aluminum-free baking powder
¼ tsp Kosher salt
1½ tsp ground cinnamon
¼ tsp. nutmeg
½ tsp. vanilla extract
1 TBS butter
1 egg
⅓ cup whole milk
1½ cups chopped apple
1 cup powdered sugar
2 TBS whole milk
oil for frying (I use grapeseed oil or organic canola oil)


Large bowl & spoon
Measuring cups/spoons
Sharp knife/cutting board
Deep skillet
Slotted spoon
Paper towel lined plate
Small bowl & spoon
Wire rack



Peel and chop the apples.


Melt the butter.

Fill skillet with about 1-inch oil.  Heat oil in skillet to 375° F (190° C)


Mix the powdered sugar and the 2 TBS milk in a small bowl.  Set aside.

whisk powdered sugar

Mix the dry ingredients in the large bowl.  Make a well in the center.  Add the milk, egg, melted butter, and vanilla.

Stir until just mixed (do not use a whisk – the dough is really thick).  Gently stir in the apples. (There is going to seem as much apples as there is dough – this is a good thing).

add apples

Test the oil by dropping a single water drop into the oil.  If it skitters on the top, it’s ready.

Place a spoonful of the batter in the oil (about the size of a golf ball).  Add spoonfuls until you have 4 or 5 fritters in the oil.  Don’t overcrowd the oil.

Let cook for about a minute.  Using the slotted spoon, carefully turn the fritters, and let them cook 45-6o seconds more.

Using the slotted spoon, carefully remove the fritters to the paper towel.

After a minute or two, roll each fritter in the powdered sugar.
