Apple Fritters – Air Fryer

PERFECT Apple Fritters! Those of you who are gluten and dairy free, this recipe will fill every donut need you may ever have! And you don’t need an air fryer to do it (though I preferred it), I included instruction for traditional air fryer as well. I’ve also made this recipe without processed white sugar (instead, I used coconut sugar) and it turned out just as well (directions included). Seriously, this is a keeper of a recipe.
