Health and fertility benefits of Fried Cinnamon-Sugar-Ricotta Fritters

Cinnamon is one of the best ingredients that someone with insulin sensitivity can eat. Half a teaspoon of cinnamon per day has been shown to be very effective at normalizing blood sugar levels. Cinnamon contains hydroxychalcone, which is thought to enhance the effects of insulin. It has also been suggested that Cinnamon prevents post-meal blood sugar spikes by slowing the gastric emptying rate - meaning that food digests slowly. (Reference: Lemons can help to prevent oxidative damage to the body, which women with PCOS are often susceptible to.


1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 cup Silvana’s Kitchen Gluten-Free All-Purpose Flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
Finely grated zest of 1 lemon
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup whole milk ricotta
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
Vegetable oil, for frying


In a medium shallow bowl, combine 1/2 cup of the sugar with the cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon salt.
In a large bowl, whisk the flour with the remaining 2 tablespoons sugar, the baking powder, lemon zest and 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Add the eggs, ricotta and vanilla and using a wooden spoon, stir just to combine.
In a large saucepan, heat 2 inches of oil to 365 °. Line a baking rack with paper towels.
Using a small ice cream scoop, scoop rounded tablespoons of half the batter into the hot oil. Fry, turning once, until the fritters are golden and cooked through, about 4 minutes. Drain the fritters on the paper towels for 30 seconds, then transfer them to the cinnamon sugar and toss to coat. Repeat with the remaining batter. Serve the fritters hot.
