Get into the fall spirit with a fresh batch of these homemade vegan baked apple fritters!  Best of all, you can enjoy these super fluffy baked doughnuts without the mess of a deep fryer.  They're still pillowy soft and drizzled with a maple coconut butter glaze.



For the apples

  • 3 cups diced apples (approx. 3 medium apples)
  • 3 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 3 Tbsp coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp cloves

For the dough

For the glaze

  • 1/3 cup coconut butter, melted (sub. 1/2 cup organic powdered sugar if desired)
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 Tbsp nut milk, if needed to thin out the glaze


  1. Preheat the oven to 400F.  Saute the apples in a skillet over medium-low heat with all the apple ingredients until soft.  Remove from heat and let cool while you prepare the dough
  2. In a small bowl, whisk the Native Forest Organic Unsweetened Simple Coconut Milk and apple cider vinegar together and set aside
  3. In a mixing bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, mix the cassava flour, Let's Do Organic Arrowroot Starch, baking powder, and coconut sugar.  Slowly add the coconut milk mixture and continue to mix until a thick dough forms.  Add the apple mixture (including any liquid) and mix a few times to incorporate
  4. With a large cookie scoop, scoop the dough onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.  Bake for 12 - 14 minutes until the tops of the fritters turn golden brown
  5. While the fritters are baking, prepare the icing by mixing the melted coconut butter and maple syrup in a small bowl.  Add 1 Tbsp nut milk if needed to thin out the mixture.  Drizzle over fritters while warm and enjoy!
