You know what they say, “an apple a day, keeps the doctor away.” Well, generally, I try my utmost best to incorporate a few of them in my weekly dietary intake. I store the fiber-filled fruits on my counter top or in eye-sight so that I can grab and go. I can’t say that I’m always overjoyed with all the buys that I garner.

I generally go for Gala types because of their heartiness. However, lately, I’ve been testing other types. For instance, at my last shopping trip I purchased some green delicious. They too are crispy and tartier than their Gala counterparts.


I guess that was why I decided to shred a couple and make apple fritters for breakfast. The other ingredients were:

  • Cinnamon (generous sprinkle)
  • Flour (1/2 cup) {whole-wheat/all-purpose]
  • Vanilla (splash)
  • Sour cream (1/2 teaspoon)
  • Salt (pinch)
  • Dark sugar (2 table-spoon)
  • Beaten egg
  • Squeeze of lime/lemon (to prevent browning) and for added flavor
  • Water (1/3 cup)
  • Oil for frying


  1. Apples were thoroughly rinsed and then shredded on box grater.
  2. Wet and dry ingredients were combined and made into a batter.Then, shredded apples were added and folded in batter.
  3. In hot skillet, a drizzle of canola oil was added.
  4. Fritters were fried until they were cooked on the internal and brown/crispy on the exterior.

Crispy apple fritters were served warm with a garnish of thinly sliced apple with a sprinkle of cinnamon and sprig of fresh mint.

I'm an avid reader and love to get lost between these beautiful words. I find reading to be a social activity because it allows me a peek inside other people's minds which in turn makes me more empathetic towards others. One day in the near future, I hope to publish my very own words in the area of poetry as well as my other love, food. Yoga and speed walking are just a few of the things that keep me balanced and centered. I love family and friends; and, of course, wholesome foods with a glass of cocktail. Life is what you make of it. And, I try to savor and enjoy the simple and precious moments.
