10 mins to prep

  1. Step 1

    In a large bowl combine the flour, warm oat milk, warm water, salt, sugars and yeast.

  2. Step 2

    Grate the fresh granny smith apple, add to the batter mixture and stir through. Leave for 20 minutes.

  3. Step 3

    Heat oil to around 170–180°C. To make fritters, use your hands or a spoon to drop large, beautiful globs of apple batter into the oil and leave to cook for 7–8 minutes or until golden and crispy.

  4. Step 4

    Add icing sugar to a bowl and whisk in the apple juice one tablespoon at a time until resembling a glaze consistency.

  5. Step 5

    Take out the apple fritters and drain on a paper towel. Drizzle the glaze on top and finish with fresh apple matchsticks.
