Healthy Hanukkah Recipe: Crispy Coconut Sweet Potato Latkes

We’re halfway through Hanukkah, so now is the perfect time to pull out the potatoes and fry up everyone’s favorite treat – latkes!

This healthier version of a classic latke recipe calls for vitamin-A-rich sweet potatoes and uses a quick pan-frying method with coconut oil. The result? Deliciousness!

Crispy Coconut Sweet Potato Latkes



1. In a large bowl, mix together grated potatoes, onion, flour, cinnamon, baking powder, salt and egg.

2. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, then add 2 tablespoons coconut oil.

3. To form each latke, drop 2 spoonfuls of sweet potato mixture into pan and flatten to make pancake shape.

4. Cook until golden brown, approx. 3-5 minutes per side.

5. Serve warm and top with Santa Cruz Apple Cinnamon Sauce.

    Make them vegan! Change the flour to Bob’s Organic Whole Wheat. Drop the egg, add ground flax seed beat in water. They were yummy!

  2. Great ideas, Dana!! Glad you enjoyed the recipe :)
