Gluten-Free Fried Apple Rings

September (my favorite month) is the beginning of apple season! With the anticipated rainy weather coming this weekend, we are going to be inside making Gluten-Free Fried Apple Rings. This recipe uses the gluten-free all-purpose flour recipe I posted last week and local apples from Indiana and Michigan. Enjoy!

Instructions

  1. Slice the apples into ¼-inch thick rounds, then remove the core from each slice by cutting a circle using a paring knife.
  2. Warm up a large skillet with about 2 inches of coconut oil over medium heat.
  3. In a mixing bowl, combine flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and sugar. Stir to combine.
  4. In another mixing bowl, whisk together the buttermilk and egg. Add the dry ingredients into the wet and stir to combine.
  5. Mix the sugar and cinnamon for the coating on a plate and set aside.
  6. Dip the apple slices in the batter and add to the heated oil. Allow to fry for several minutes or until the bottoms become golden brown then flip and fry on the other side.
  7. Remove from oil and transfer onto a paper towel lined plate to cool.
  8. Once all the apples are fried, toss them in the cinnamon sugar coating.
  9. Best when served warm. They are perfect served alone, but we like to add a dollop of whole milk plain yogurt to ours. Enjoy!
