Snack: Apple Oat Fritters

Servings: 12 small fritters

Preparation time: 15 minutes

Cooking time: 15 minutes


  • ¼ cup oats
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 1 apple, chopped
  • ½ cup flour
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • Vegetable oil

Directions for Preparation

  1. In a bowl, let the oats soak the milk while you prepare the other ingredients.
  2. Add enough oil in the pan so there is about 1 inch in the pan. Start to heat the oil on low.
  3. Add the chopped apple to the oats.
  4. Use the back of a spoon to bash the apple into the oats so it breaks it down into smaller pieces.
  5. Mix in the rest of the ingredients.
  6. The oil is ready when a little batter is dropped into it and it sizzles.
  7. Using a wet hand, take a small scoop of the mixture and drop it gently into the hot oil. Repeat with the rest of the mixture. Leave space between each fritter.
  8. Flip when golden brown.

These fritters are a nice treat while at camp; and they could not be easier! You will surely want to double the batch. Keep a bowl of water close by as you make the fritters. Wet your hand in between each fritter so that the dough will roll off easily into the pan.
