I have to admit, I love a classic Potato Latkes, but these Sweet Potato Latkes have a special place in my heart too! They’re a twist on the classic, made a bit more nutritious thanks to the extra nutrients in the sweet potato, but still super delicious. Whether or not you serve yours with sour cream or applesauce, you are going to love these! These are also gluten-free, but nobody is going to know the difference! Serve hot and crispy and make extra because these are going to go fast!

Ingredients for Sweet Potato Latkes

  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Onion
  • Scallions
  • Eggs
  • Tapioca Flour
  • Sea Salt
  • Baking powder
  • Oil, for frying

Potato Latke Pro Tips:

  • Don’t wear a shirt you care about while making these! The oil can spatter.
  • Make a tiny one to test in case you want to adjust salt for remaining batches.
  • I keep my strainer near by so I can strain extra liquid as needed.
  • After grating potatoes, place into a bowl of cold water. This helps bring out some of the starch!

Fry the latkes an hour or two ahead, place them on baking sheets in a single layer, then re-heat them in the oven when ready to serve! They taste best when hot and crispy!
