Apple Fritters

I normally make these as a dessert or snack when we want something easy, quick, and sweet. But, a friend suggested to me that these would be a great breakfast dish for me to eat in the mornings before work. My recipe is more of a diet item, but it can easily be changed to a non-diet dish.

You can use any type of apples for this, but Granny Smith apples are usually the best to use when cooking or baking. I like a lot of apples in mine, so it's not uncommon to see me using a little more than one apple, depending on the size. If you are following the Weight Watchers diet plan and use the Splenda sweetener, one of these is about 3 1/2 points.

Apple Fritters
1/3 c. self-rising flour
1 apple, peeled and grated
splash of low-fat milk
1 egg white
1 t. vanilla
Splenda (or 1/3 c. sugar)

Stir together the flour, egg, vanilla, sweetener, and enough milk until it resembles thick cream. Add the grated apple and mix well. Spray a skillet with non-stick cooking spray and heat to medium heat. Onto the skillet, drop a heaping spoonful of batter, depending on the size of the fritter that you want. When bubbles first start appearing on top of the batter, turn over and cook until golden brown. Makes 6-7 fritters.
