PALEO DESSERT

I recently discovered tapioca flour and while I know it falls into the cheat group, I’m in love with using it for pizza dough and other “bread-like” recipes.   The thing I miss most being grain-free is donuts.   While trying to create a donut recipe, I stumbled on to another sweet favorite – apple fritters.

Another lovely thing about this paleo dessert is that it is a nut free recipe.  I know I’ve done something right when Mr. Bejelly asks me to make something more than three times.  We really enjoy the paleo apple fritters with coffee or dirty chai..

This recipe is now exclusively available in my  Paleo Cookbook Paleo Eats.

Can I use Truvia in place of honey?

I don't see why that would be an issue. You might need to add a touch of water to the batter if it's too stiff.

These were delicious! I made chunks of apple instead of shredding it and substituted coconut sugar for the honey and they came out great. I didn't bother flattening them. I just fried them for 2 minutes or less per side and everything came out fully cooked and delicious!!! Thanks for the wonderful recipe. It was a great treat after nearly 2 years without a doughnut type treat!

These look delicious, but I do have one question: how much oil do you fry these in? In other words, what depth of oil should be in the pan?

Chris, I have a really small fry pan that I use. It's maybe 7" round. I use roughly 2 1/2 - 3 cups of oil to fry these. You don't need a ton.

Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. My fritters didn't stay together at all when frying them. Any idea what could have caused this? My dough was pretty runny, so maybe I didn't measure the flours correctly?? Did you pack the flour?

OMG. I just realized I misread my conversion chart and added twice the amount of butter that the recipe called for. That must have been what caused my problem. I will definitely try this recipe again because even with them falling apart and having too much butter they were still good!
