For the fritters:

  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar substitute
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 Tbsp Sugar Free Vanilla Protein Powder I use this one
  • 1/4 tsp xanthan gum see example
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 Tbsp butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped apples (approx 1/4 inch pieces)
  • oil for frying

For the optional cinnamon sprinkle topping:

  • 2 Tbsp butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar substitute
  • 1.5 tsp ground cinnamon

For the optional Maple Bourbon Caramel Sauce:

  • 1 Tbsp bourbon
  • 1/2 tsp maple extract
  • 1/2 cup sugar free caramel sauce see example


For the fritters:

  1. Combine the dry ingredients in a medium bowl. Whisk together the eggs, almond milk, and melted butter in a small bowl. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, then add the apples and stir well. Let sit for 2 minutes. Form into 12 tightly packed balls. Heat about 1 inch of oil in a heavy bottomed pan (cast iron works great) until about 350 degrees (F). Fry the fritters for 1 – 2 minutes per side or until golden brown and cooked through. Remove to a paper towel to drain any extra oil.

For the cinnamon sprinkle:

  1. Combine the cinnamon and sweetener in a small bowl. Brush the fritters with the melted butter, then roll in the cinnamon/sweetener mixture and place on a serving platter.

For the Maple Bourbon Caramel Sauce:

  1. Add the caramel sauce, maple extract, and bourbon to a small saucepan. Heat for about 3 minutes or until bubbling. Remove from heat and cool slightly. Drizzle while still warm over the fritters and serve.
