Vegan and Gluten-Free Baked Apple Fritters

Vegan and Gluten-Free Baked Apple Fritters are my newest creation and they are the dessert of fall, i said it.

the fritters are probably one of my all-time favorite desserts and that’s saying something.

i have declared some others my favorite in the past, but far and few. Vegan and Gluten-Free Baked Apple Fritters are it baby.

these gems are SOFT, fluffy and yet they’re dense at the same time. if you haven’t had a dessert that fits that criteria, i HIGHLY recommend you try Vegan and Gluten-Free Baked Apple Fritters.

Alex could not stop eating them and just kept saying “omg, these are the best things ever.” well, if hubby approves that much, then i did something right.

the key to make the fritters’ texture perfect is coconut yogurt, and it has to be very creamy.

you will need a whole cup and i recommend using cocojune if you can get ahold if it. that’s the creamiest brand i have found thus far.

another very creamy brand is Siggis, they make amazing plant based yogurt.

as far as apples go, i went with the cream of the crop (in my opinion) and that is a honeycrisp apple.

you only need one medium size honey crisp apple by the way! the honey crisp apple should be cut into super small pieces so they cook all the way through.

here’s everything you need to make Vegan and Gluten-Free Baked Apple Fritters

gluten free all purpose flour

almond flour

baking powder

baking soda

organic cane sugar


vanilla extract

extra virgin olive oil

vegan yogurt

honey crisp apple

a glaze of sorts or powdered sugar

i made a super simple glaze with vanilla frosting and coconut oil. you can always make a homemade one but this was super convenient and very tasty!
