Surprisingly good! Great gluten-free breakfast option. I used Craisins in place of the dried fruit, walnuts in place of almonds, flax in place of chia seeds, and added a 1/2 tsp of cinnamon. Without the cinnamon, they would've been totally bland, but with it, I took a nibble off my "test" fritter and gobbled down the whole thing. Yum! Next time, I'd add a little orange zest or maybe a splash of Grand Marnier to brighten them up.
