Apple Fritters

  • ½ cup Tapioca Starch
  • 1 cup Cassava Flour
  • 1 tsp Baking powder
  • ½ tsp Sea Salt
  • 6 tbsp Maple Sugar
  • 2 tbsp Maple Syrup
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 cup Carbonated water
  • 2 tbsp Apple cider vinegar
  • 2 cup Peeled and diced apple
  • 1 tbsp Avocado oil (for frying)

Maple Glaze

  • ½ cup Coconut Butter
  • 4 tbsp Coconut Milk
  • 4 tbsp Maple Syrup
  • 1 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract (low alcohol)
  • 1 pinch Celtic Sea Salt



  • In a mixing bowl, add cassava flour, tapioca starch, baking soda, sea salt, cinnamon, and maple sugar, and stir to combine. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add maple syrup, carbonated water, and apple cider vinegar. Stir until combined into a smooth batter. Gently fold apples into the batter.
  • Add avocado oil to a pot or deep pan and heat over medium to medium-high heat for frying.
    Divide the dough into 7 or 8 even sized pieces and slightly flatten the pieces.
    Gently lower each piece of dough into the hot oil so it is fully submerged and deep fry for about 2-2.5 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Use a slotted spatula to remove the fritter from the oil and place on a cooling rack with parchment paper-lined baking sheet or paper towel-lined plate underneath to catch drained oil.
  • Let cool slightly and continue frying the remaining dough fritters. Serve apple fritters warm, with optional maple glaze. 

Maple Glaze

  • In a small saucepan, combine coconut butter, coconut milk, maple syrup, sea salt and vanilla extract over low heat.
    If glaze is too thick add extra coconut milk. Drizzle over Apple Fritters.


  • Frying Tip: Don’t overcrowd the pan when frying; this can lower the oil temperature and result in greasy fritters. Fry in batches if needed. Turn the fritters over with care using tongs or a slotted spoon to ensure even cooking.
