Sweet Potato Latkes Recipe - from Dr. Axe, My favorite, Healthier Version

In Romania we call them "KREMZLI." Delicious as a desert, or main dish.



Here, in the USA, we identified a healthier version, for the diabetics called Sweet Potato Latkes Recipe - Dr. Axe: "



Why Sweet Potato Latkes Instead of German Potatoes?

Traditionally, latkes are made from white potatoes. But with my version of the potato pancakes, you’ll get an extra nutritional boost. Sweet potatoes are packed with vitamin A and antioxidants, but they’re also low on the glycemic scale. I can always get on board with extra vitamins and minerals!

Key Ingredients in Sweet Potato Latkes
Though potato latkes are usually made with all-purpose flour, my version is made with arrowroot or tapioca starch, making these gluten-free latkes. I’ve also created two different versions for you to enjoy: the first latkes have baked potato-style toppings, with plain yogurt and chopped green onions.
The second sweet potato latke recipe uses yogurt, healing raw honey and cacao nibs for a more dessert-style potato pancakes. You can make a big batch of latkes and put out all the toppings for friends and family to create their own favorite version. Variety is the spice of life!
But enough about toppings. It’s time to make some sweet potato latkes!
