Apple & Oat Fritters

I always know I've made a winner when my kids love what I've cooked!  These fritters were gobbled up with not one complaint.  Soaking the oats overnight not only makes them easier to digest, but it also helps to bind the batter and gives the fritters a moist texture.

Ingredients (makes approx 10 fritters)
1 cup oats, soaked overnight with 1 cup of water (cover and put in the fridge while soaking)
1/2 cup rapadura or raw sugar
1/2 cup spelt flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp ground cinnamon
Pinch of nutmeg
Pinch of salt
1 free range egg
1 large apple (no need to peel if organic)
Coconut oil, for pan frying

1. Grate the apple (if using Thermomix, quarter the apple and chop 5sec/sp5, then tip into a large bowl) and combine with all other ingredients in a large bowl (no need to strain the oats).  Mix until combined. 

2. Heat a frypan on low heat and add a small amount of coconut oil.  Cook fritters in batches of 2 or 3, for around 2 minutes on each side or until browned, adding a little more coconut oil in between batches.

3. Serve with honey or pure maple syrup, and fresh fruit.


  1. Mmm, next weekend's brunch. Oats make everything a little bit better.

  2. They were delish Stef. Let me know what you thought when you have had a chance to make them :)

  3. Can you make it without the egg, maybe use flax meal or chia seeds? thanks Kathy

    1. Kathy, I don't tend to use egg replacements a lot but I don't see why not! Maybe a couple of tbsp of chia seeds soaked in water for 20min before you mix them into the batter? If you do end up trying, let me know how you go :)
