Zucchini & Sweet Potato Latkes

Zucchini & Sweet Potato Latkes

And now finally, we get to this delicious latke recipe that is totally Whole 30 compliant!  These were easy to make and SO tasty!  Crispy on the outside and sweet and slightly starchy on the inside, they went great with a poached egg for my breakfast.  These latkes would also go great as a dinner side dish to pretty much any meat or poultry.  It’s a great way to sneak some extra veggies into your kids menu – my five year old even liked them!
