This easy recipe for gluten free air fryer apple fritters is the perfect dessert or breakfas for fall. These are made from scratch and then air fried for a healthier version of this fall classic dessert. These donuts are made in under 30 minutes with cinnamon, fresh fruit and a yummy glaze.



2 cups Gluten Free Flour
1/2 cup Brown Sugar
2 tsp. Baking Powder
1 tsp. Xanthan Gum
2 tsp. Ground Cinnamon
1/2 tsp. Sea Salt
1/2 cup Milk
2 Tbsp. Coconut Oil, melted
2 large Eggs
1 Tbsp. Lemon Juice
2 tsp. Vanilla Extract
1 medium Apple, sweet variety peeled, cored and chopped

1/2 cup Powdered Sugar
1/2 tsp. Vanilla Extract
2 tsp. Milk


In a mixing bowl whisk together the gluten free flour, baking powder, xanthan gum, cinnamon and sea salt. Set aside.

In the bowl of your stand mixer add the brown sugar, milk, melted coconut oil, eggs, lemon juice and vanilla. Beat the ingredients until they are well combined.

Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and beat together until just combined.

Using a wooden spoon or spatula mix the apple chunks into the dough. 

Line the basket of your air fryer with parchment paper

Dollop the dough in about palm size fritters into the basket. I did four fritters a little bigger than my palm about one inch thick twice to cook these. Spray the top of the fritters with some olive or coconut oil.

At 380 degrees air fry the fritters for 7 minutes.

Flip the fritters over, spray this side with oil and then air fry at 380 degrees for 5 minutes more.

Immediately remove the apple fritters from the air fryer basket and move them to a cooling rack.

Repeat these cooking steps for the next four apple fritters.
