Ingredients

  • 4 apples peeled, cored and cut into small dice
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 tbsp. Splenda (or sugar if your diet allows)
  • 2 large eggs separated
  • 1/2 cup fat-free milk
  • Nonstick cooking spray (can use 1 Tbsp. butter or oil)
  • Sugar-free maple syrup (optional) (or powdered sugar if your diet allows)

Directions

  1. In a medium-size mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and Splenda. In a small mixing bowl, beat together the egg yolks and milk.  Stir the egg mixture into the dry ingredients, then fold in the apples.
  2. With an electric mixer in a medium-size mixing bowl beat the egg whites on high until they form stiff peaks. Carefully fold into the fritter mixture.
  3. Coat a 12-inch nonstick skillet or griddle with cooking spray (or use 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil or butter) and heat over medium-high until a drop of fritter batter sizzles immediately. Drop tablespoonfuls of the batter 2 inches apart and cook until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer the fritters to a warm platter and continue with the remaining batter.
  4. Serve warm with sugar-free maple syrup, if desired, or powdered sugar.
