I made these easy-to-make fritters as part of our Cooking with Cinnamon Party. It was great to see a side dish with cinnamon other than sweet potato after sweet potato when I searched for one. The paleo-friendly recipe, from blog A Girl Worth Saving, is originally from The Paleo Approach Cookbook, and had three simple ingredients, and even though I didn't make it paleo-friendly (used olive oil for frying instead of coconut oil), I thought these were quite delicious.
Grating the apples was fun, needing only a few ingredients was super, but you must make sure the plantains were super ripe, otherwise the fritters would not hold. The produce clerk had told me the plantains I bought were ripe enough (not true), so it was harder to mash and hold the fritters together. I cracked an egg into the mixture to hold it all a little better. Also, the recipe said to fry each side of the fritters for about 7-8 minutes, I was able to do it for 3-4 minutes per side, but that might have been the olive oil instead of the coconut oil.
