For The Potato Pancakes:

  • 1 lb. Sweet Potatoes peeled and shredded
  • 1 Medium Sweet Apple
  • 1/2 Small Onion shredded
  • 1 small Garlic Clove grated or finely minced
  • 1/4 cup Paleo or Gluten Free 1-1 Flour
  • 1 tsp Cumin Powder
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp Coriander
  • 1 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1 Egg
  • Olive Oil Spray

For The Honey Sour Cream:

  • 3/4 cup Dairy-Free Sour Cream
  • 2 tbsp Honey
  • 1/2 tsp ground Cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp Pumpkin Spice Caviar *see notes


  • Place shredded sweet potatoes, shredded apple, and onions in a thin dish cloth. Squeeze out as much moisture as you can.
  • Place the shredded mixture in a medium bowl and stir with onion, garlic, egg, flour, spices and salt until just combined.
  • Form the sweet potato mixture into ten small patties. Be sure you don’t pack them in too tight, you want them to be a little flat with scraggly edges (the crispy bits!)
  • Form the potato pancakes and place on a lined sheet pan. Spray the pancakes, fully with olive oil spray.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until golden and crispy.
  • Combine the sour cream ingredients and serve to the side of the potato pancakes.
