Hi Gabriele, You will find these fritters can fall apart if the mixture has not sat for 20 minutes to allow the chia seeds to swell and bind the mixture. When shaping the mixture, be sure to press them quite firm so they keep their form when cooking. Hope this helps!
Iam disappoined these fritters fall apart even I did them exactly according to recipe

Because the fritters have ricotta in them the texture will change slightly after freezing. But you can keep them cooked in the refrigerator for up to 4 days - enjoy them cold or heat them before eating. The DH team
This sounds sooo delicious…can a batch be made and then frozen…far too much for a meal for two!
