Healthy Potato Pancake Recipe

If you enjoy pancakes but find that traditional flour-based varieties tend to hang around in your intestines longer than is comfortable, give this delicious recipe for healthy potato pancakes a try.

1 organic egg
3 tablespoons of agave syrup or honey
3 tablespoons of brown rice flour
1/8 teaspoon sea salt

4 tablespoons of olive oil or coconut oil


Steam potatoes until tender, then mash them.

Add rice, almond, or soy milk, organic egg, agave syrup or honey, brown rice flour, sea salt, and cinnamon to mashed potatoes.

Use your hands to shape potato mixture into flat cakes.

In a medium to large-sized pan, heat olive oil or coconut oil over medium heat and saute potato cakes until they are golden brown.

Enjoy these delicious and filling healthy potato pancakes.

This looks so yummy. I'm going to try it soon! Thanks! My children love potatoes. I usually just slice the potatoes and then steam them. While still warm, they eat the potato slices with a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil and a tiny bit of sea salt.
