  • 4 c shredded unpeeled sweet potatoes (Use a food processor and this is a breeze! Make sure ou wash them well and use organic potatoes)

  • 1/3 c oat flour

  • ½ c grated onion (you can do this in a food processor too.)

  • ¼ c chopped parsley

  • 3 T fresh lemon juice

  • 4 flax eggs (Combine ¼ c ground flaxseed, and 3/4c of water.) Allow to sit for at least 10 min to thicken.

  • ¾ t salt

  • 2 t garam masala (Indian curry spice) If you don’t have this seasoning, you can add ¼ t of coriander, cardamom, cinnamon, allspice, 1 t cumin to make your own curry blend.

  • Black pepper to taste


  1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well (we’ve even mixed this up the night before and kept batter in the fridge.)

  2. If baking, preheat oven to 375. (use a non-stick baking pan or a pan lined with parchment).

  3. Form small-medium sized pancakes, patting batter down only slightly. Small pancakes are easier to manage and make great appetizer-sized portions. We used a cookie scoop to make our pancakes uniform ad used the underside of the scoop to press down the latkes.

  4. Bake the 1st side for 20 minutes. (Because these are plant-based, they need to be cooked well on the 1st side before flipping.)

  5. Flip, and press down a little and bake for 8 min more.

  6. Serve hot with apple sauce or cranberry sauce.

  1. These freeze VERY well. To freeze: place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment and put into freezer for a few hours to firm up. Remove and put into freezer container, lining each layer with way paper. You can also “vacuum” seal them.

  2. To reheat: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Take latkes straight from the freezer and place on a non-stick cookie sheet to reheat until warm (about 10-15 min).
