"Don't let the WeightWatchers label scare you off - these are really good little pancakes, best served with a dollop of sour cream (or even better - Mexican crema). This recipe is slightly adapted so that it uses only fresh ingredients, and a bit of additional binding. Instead of sour cream, you can use a dollop of unsweetened applesauce, or plain greek yogurt."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Shred potato, apple, and onion into a medium-size bowl using the fine-holes of a box grater or shredder; stir in onion flakes. Press out as much liquid as you can by hand; drain liquid.

Step 2

Set aside mixture for 1 minute and press out liquid again; drain again. Stir in egg, salt, pepper and cinnamon.

Step 3

Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium-high heat. Drop potato mixture by tablespoonfuls into skillet and flatten each with the back of a spoon to make twenty 2-inch latkes. Leave at least 1 inch between latkes. Do this in batches, as they won't all fit in the pan.

Step 4

Cook latkes until golden on first side, about 3 minutes. Gently flip latkes with a spatula and cook until other side is golden, about 3 to 4 minutes more.

Step 5

Carefully remove latkes to a serving plate; cover to keep warm and repeat with remaining mixture.

Step 6

To serve, top with a dollop of sour cream or applesauce.
