Tips for Making Low-Fat Latkes or “Diet Potato Pancakes for Hanukkah

At a friends house this week we ha these- oh my god are they good! I am making them tonight in honour of Hanukkah and the Festival of Lights. Normally you would make food loaded with fat- donuts, latkes, etc.

How I have made them in the past is BAKED them in the oven. Yes- you heard right. Take your usual latke recipe ( and try using 2 egg whites instead of 1 egg for even less fat) and putting a bit of oil on a cookie sheet.. heat a little, than spoon on latke/potato pancake batter. Do NOT make them too big! ( Maximum 3″ in diameter). Cook for about 7 mins or so a side- keep an eye on these so they don’t burn.

Serve with low fat our cream or applesauce or both.
