This past Saturday, I had decided to make a few new recipes, which I did backwards, because I started with making Chicken and Dumplings and then I made these apple cinnamon fritters. So, I had finished the dumplings that morning and here comes Barrett into the kitchen to see if the dumplings were finished, LOL. So, he had chicken and dumplings for breakfast and apple cinnamon fritters for lunch! LOL
I LOVE LOVE it when my kids eat what I cook or when they really like what I cook, LOL. Barrett actually said that the chicken and dumplings were the best that I had made and I make them a lot. Here is my chicken and dumplings recipe – HERE- My chicken and dumplings have only 4 ingredients, less than $1 per serving and cooks in less than 15 minutes! AMAZING!

What is the difference between a donut and a fritter? Is an apple fritter a donut or pastry?
The difference between a donut and a fritter is that with a fritter the fillings (apples) are folded into the batter before they are fried and a donut is fried then a filling can be piped into it. The difference between a donut and a pastry is that a donut is fried and a pastry is baked, but yet a pastry is defined as a baked food made from flour and water, so a fritter is made from flour, but yet it is fried like a donut.

Are apple fritters healthy? Apple fritters keto? Are apple fritters low carb?
Hmmmm, this is a tough question, because the batter does contain apples. LOL, And apples are healthy, right? I have tried to make this recipe healthier by replacing the sugar with honey. I love honey and I believe that it is better for us than sugar.
These apple fritters are not keto, because of the batter is made from white flour and apples are not really keto either, but I suppose an almond flour batter could be made and fried. And, maybe add a fewer amount of apples to help lower the number of carbohydrates.
