Gluten-Free Classic Potato Latkes


  • 6 potatoes (makes about 6.5 cups shredded potatoes)
  • 2 medium onions (makes 1 cup grated)
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 egg white
  • 6 tablespoons arrowroot flour/starch
  • 2 teaspoons fine sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup of oil of choice, or enough oil to cover pan to a debt of 1/2 inch (I like avocado oil or extra virgin olive oil)


  • Peel and grate the potatoes. Grate the onions. Add grated mixture to a fine mesh strainer lined with a cheese cloth and strain as much excess water out as possible. Place strained mixture into a large bowl. Mince garlic and add it to the bowl with the potato and onion.
  • Add in the eggs, arrowroot flour/starch, salt and pepper. Mix well.
  • Place 1/2 cup of oil into a large pan and heat the oil on medium-high heat.
  • Once oil is hot, make patties out of the potato mixture (squeeze out even more excess liquid as you make patties) and pan-fry until brown on both sides. Should take about 3-4 minutes on each side but watch closely to avoid burning.
  • Recipe Notes

  • Makes 10-12 large latkes.
  • Paired with the Homemade Apple Sauce in the Lexi's Clean Kitchen Cookbook

    Happy (almost) Hanukkah! 

    Sweet Potato Latkes

    Did you know that the first night of Hanukkah falls on Thanksgiving this year? That’s some exciting stuff over here. Especially when it comes to the food. Latkes, cranberry sauce, pumpkin desserts, cookies… I love the idea of the Thanksgiving + Hanukkah combination. Whether you celebrate the two or not, or whether prefer calling them potato latkes, pancakes, or fritters, this side dish will fly off your table (so make a lot!).

    Last week my mom was in town just in time to try these sweet potato latkes paired with my homemade cranberry apple sauce (get ready for Tuesday). Of course I put a nice plate of these out for her and Mike to try, and the reviews were great! A huge hit all around. This week will be filled with Thanksgiving dishes, so stay tuned!
