Gluten Free and Vegan Sweet Potato Latkes

I did it! First, I actually made latkes for Hanukkah. Then, I made them gluten free, vegan, and with sweet potatoes instead of white potatoes. Need to spread the love!


  • 2 cups grated sweet potatoes
  • 1/2 yellow onion, finely diced
  • 1/3 cup Heritage Blend All Purpose Flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tbsp. chives
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 tbsp Oat Milk
  • Avocado oil
  • Apple sauce
  • Vegan sour cream
  • Pepper to taste


  1. Using a food processor, grate the sweet potato. Place in a large bowl.
  2. Mix in diced onions.
  3. Thoroughly mix in the flour, baking powder, salt, pepper, and chives before adding oat milk.
  4. Pour a generous amount of avocado oil into a pan and drop large spoonfuls of the mixture into the heated oil.
  5. Flatten slightly and cook until golden brown on both sides.
  6. Place on a wire rack with paper towels underneath to drain.
  7. Serve with apple sauce and/or vegan sour cream.

Alex founded Hello My Tribe not because she was an expert on motherhood, but because she was a mom who desperately needed support and community. During those tough first months of motherhood, Alex spent day after day reading and learning about motherhood. She learned: 1. She wasn’t alone in her feelings about motherhood. 2. Everything we could have ever dreamt of existed for the baby, but there was a lack of resources for the woman/mother 3. There are many maternal health issues in our country that need attention and need to be addressed. Hello My Tribe was built upon these needs. Previous to launching Hello My Tribe in 2016, Alex was a professional and volunteer fundraiser, raising millions of dollars for non-profit organizations. Alex lives in Austin, TX with her son and two rescue dogs.
