TheseÂ Gluten Free Sweet Potato Waffle Latkes with Paleo Cranberry Apple Compote will become a cool-weather favourite brunch recipe your whole family will love!
Guys, if you haven’t noticed, I’m officially OBSESSSSSSSED with my waffle iron. Like best $50 I ever spent on Amazon period- including that time I bought myself a black school girls skirt so I could dress up as Britney for my 90’s themed 30th birthday. But seriously guys, I have made Birthday Cake waffles that totally kicked ass, and loaded potato waffles that were out of this world good. Today I wanted to take the potato waffle game to a new level with these gluten free sweet potato waffle latkes. Yes, we’ve passed Hannukah, but latkes are bad ass any time of year and in waffle form? YES.
How to MakeÂ Gluten Free Sweet Potato Waffle Latkes
So when I was converting to Judaism I had to learn how to make latkes. No, that wasn’t official curriculum with the conversion, but my hubby’s bubbie showed me the ropes. There were two things I learned that day. One, latkes are fucking delicious. Two, your clothes will smell for DAYS and there is nothing you can do about it. The whole house smells from the amount of oil that you need to fry a few pounds of potatoes. It’s kind of insane. So I found a great way to eliminate that issue by making theseÂ Gluten Free Sweet Potato Waffle Latkes in my WAFFLE IRON! Waffle iron FTW!
So I based this recipe off of any classic sweet potato latke recipe and mixed together the potatoes, spices, some eggs and some gluten free brown rice flour to yield a nice batter that will hold up to the waffle iron. Then to add a little seasonal flavour to theseÂ Gluten Free Sweet Potato Waffle Latkes, I made a paleo cranberry and apple compote with no sugar added. It’s delicious AF on its own, so you might want to make a double batch.
I’m obviously just getting started on the whole waffle thing so expect to see A LOT more waffle recipes from this mama to be.
