These fritters are easy, fast and delicious. They are also lightly fried and not deep fried which makes them healthier too!
you probably have most of the ingredients on hand already in your pantry. If you don’t have oat flour, it’s the easiest thing to make...simply take rolled oats and process them in a blender till they are ground into a flour. Use gluten free oats if you’d like.
I’ve included a dipping sauce which makes them even better, but you can also just sprinkle them with some powdered sugar or even eat them right out of the pan with nothing on them. No judgement here.
these make a great snack, dessert or even breakfast. There is no such thing as a bad time to enjoy these.

To dip or not to dip?
A simple dusting of powdered sugar makes a great topping and a pretty presentation.
- 1 cup mashed bananas (use over ripe bananas for best results)
- 1 cup oat flour
- 1.5 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 Tablespoons maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- 6 dates, pitted
- 1/4 cup almond milk
- 1/4 cup plus 2 Tablespoons orange juice
- In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients and allow the batter to rest while you heat the oil.
- In a large flat pan, heat a few tablespoons of a neutral oil like refined coconut, canola or grapeseed over medium heat.
- Drop the batter by teaspoonfuls (the kind you eat with, not the kind you measure with) into the oil and cook 30 seconds to 1 minute per side till golden.
- Remove the fritters and transfer to a paper towel lined plate to drain excess oil. Serve warm.
- If you don’t have oat flour, just put rolled oats in a blender and make your own.
- Make sure you are using pure maple syrup and not a brand that has added sugar.
- Do a test batch with one fritter first to make sure your oil isn’t too hot. You don’t want to burn your fritters
- You can make these larger and turn them into pancakes!
