I have a confession, I am one of those people that squeeze out the oil in puff puff; I usually cannot bring myself to consume all that oil. So I thought, how can I make puff puff fitfam approved and still maintain the taste & texture?  A light-bulb went off and puff-puff sticks were born. If you eat puffpuff for the taste & texture, this recipe is for you. if you eat puff puff because you like the grease, by all means deep fry using our traditional recipe.

I finished the sticks off with a sprinkle of cinnamon, nutmeg and honey drizzle. Serve with hot Milo or Hot chocolate as you open up christmas presents, go right ahead and dunk them.

  1. 1 + 1/4 cups flour (157 grams)
  2. 1 teaspoon quick rise yeast
  3. 1/4 cup sugar (50 grams)
  4. 1 cup lukewarm water
  5. 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  6. 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
