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

- Total Time:25 minutes
2 large eggs
1/4 cup plus 2 tbsp. buckwheat flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tbsp. plus 1 tsp. palm sugar
a pinch of kosher salt
1 cup freshly grated apple
Grapeseed or canola oil for cooking
Sour cream or unsweetened applesauce for serving
In a medium mixing bowl, whisk the eggs until frothy around the edges. Stir in the buckwheat flour, baking powder, cinnamon, palm sugar, salt, and Peanut Butter & Co. Old Fashioned Smooth until mixed. Fold in the grated apple.
Heat a thin layer of oil in a steep sided skillet over medium high heat. Drop latke batter by the tablespoon-full into the oil and flatten if necessary. Fry latkes until golden brown on each side. Drain on paper towels and serve warm with the topping of your choice.
