Apple Peanut Butter Latkes

Apple Peanut Butter Latkes

I was raised Catholic so my Jewish husband and mother-in-law coached me through the latke making process. After eating three latkes without saying anything, Joe looked at me with a big smile and said, “Oh yea, honey. These are latkes.” We like them best with a dollop of sour cream because the slight sourness brings out the sweetness in the apples and Peanut Butter & Co. Old Fashioned Smooth.

  • Yield:16-20 silver dollar-sized latkes
  • Prep Time:10 minutes

1/4 cup plus 2 tbsp. buckwheat flour

2 tbsp. Peanut Butter & Co. Old Fashioned Smooth

1 cup freshly grated apple 

Grapeseed or canola oil for cooking
