People are drawn to vegetarianism by all sorts of motives. Some of us want to live longer, healthier lives or do our part to reduce pollution. Others have made the switch because we want to preserve Earths natural resources or because weve always loved animals and are ethically opposed to eating them. Thanks to an abundance of scientific research that demonstrates the health and environmental benefits of a plant-based diet, even the federal government recommends that we consume most of our calories from grain products, vegetables and fruits.
You can probably guess the special ingredients: apples and peanut butter. Everyone knows that dipping an apple in a peanut butter is a quick and easy snack, but for this challenge I drew on one of my childhood favorites, apple fritters. These are super easy and can be adjusted for however many you want to make. Here’s the basic recipe. Apple Peanut Butter Fritters Makes 16 fritters 2 large McIntosh apples 2 – 3 tablespoons peanut butter 1/2 cup all-purpose flour plus 1 tablespoon Pinch ground cinnamon Pinch salt 1/2 cup soy milk 1 tablespoon maple syrup confectioners’ sugar for sifting, maple syrup for serving oil for deep fryer or skillet Heat the oil in a deep fryer (or skillet) to about 365 degrees.
