Looking for a new twist on a paleo breakfast? These apple fritters may hit the spot.

Are they fried? Yes. Do I recommend you make them every day? No. Every once in a while for a special treat? Absolutely.

They have a crunchy delicious almond meal outer and a crisp warm tart apple center.

I like to plate them with a drizzle of honey and cinnamon.
