These aren't fritters in the true sense of the word, but they're equally delicious. Light and moist, they're terrific for breakfast, a snack, or even dessert. The calories are significantly lowered due to the use of egg substitute and fat-free skim milk. All you have to do is stir the batter together, then lightly fry until they're golden brown—the whole recipe should take less than 20 minutes to make. You'll love the addition of sifted powdered sugar over top while they're still nice and warm. They're such a delicious fall treat, you'll look forward to making them over and over whenever you're done visiting the apple orchard.

Ingredients

All-purpose flour

½ cup(s)

Sugar

6 tsp, granulated

Table salt

tsp

Regular liquid egg substitute

½ cup(s)

Fat free skim milk

¼ cup(s)

Vanilla extract

1 tsp

Fresh apple(s)

2 large, peeled, cored, grated (McIntosh or Granny Smith)

Unsalted butter

1 Tbsp

Powdered sugar (confectioner's)

1 Tbsp

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, combine flour, granulated sugar and salt; mix well. Whisk in egg substitute, milk and extract; stir in apples.
  2. Melt butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Drop apple mixture into pan, making 8 even fritters. Cook until golden brown, about 2 to 3 minutes per side. (If your pan is not large enough to cook all 8 fritters at once, cook in 2 batches using 1/2 tablespoon butter per batch.)
  3. Sift powdered sugar over top of fritters just before serving.
  4. Serving size: 1 fritter
