Vegan Apple Fritter Rings dipped in almond maple sauce

Vegan Apple Fritter Rings

Apple Fritters were one of my childhood favorites! But you don't need eggs or dairy to make them. These Vegan Apple Fritters taste just like the real deal (if not better!). Served with an Almond Maple Sauce - this is a match made in heaven!

Apple Fritter Rings

  • 1 apple (I used a slightly sweet apple like Pink Lady)
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon white sugar (make sure it's vegan!)
  • 1/3 cup plant-based milk (I used unsweetened rice coconut milk)
  • 1/3 cup sparkling water
  • frying oil
  • powdered sugar (to sprinkle on top)

Almond Maple Dipping Sauce

  • 1 tablespoon white almond butter (made with blanched almonds)
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons water


  • Peel the apple and remove the core with an apple corer*. Cut the apple in about 12 rings. 
  • For the batter, combine the flour, baking powder, and sugar. Add the plant-based milk and sparkling water and whisk together. If you dip an apple slice into the batter, the batter should stick to the apple but it shouldn't be too thick. Add more water if it's too thick. Add more flour if it's too runny. 
  • Heat the frying oil in a pot (just enough so that the apple rings can swim in the oil). Fry each apple ring dipped in the batter for about 3-4 minutes - until golden and crispy. If they brown too quickly, then your oil is too hot, reduce the heat a bit.
  • Transfer them to a paper towel to remove excess oil.
  • For the Almond Maple Dipping Sauce, whisk together all the ingredients. 
  • Sprinkle the Vegan Apple Fritter Rings with powdered sugar and serve with the Almond Maple Dipping Sauce! 


*Alternatively you could also cut the apple into slices and then cut out the core with a knife, but removing the core with an apple corer first is much faster and safer!
