  • Preheat your air fryer to 390 and lightly spray the basket with nonstick . Remove the bowl of with the pancake batter in it from the refrigerator. Use a large spoon or scoop to scoop out a chunk of the mixture then form it into ball. Flatten the ball to ½-3/4″ thickness and place it into the basket. Do not overlap your pancakes, you will most likely be making more than one batch.

  • Tip: Spray your pancakes with olive oil before baking them for both taste and moisture. Bake your potato pancakes for five minutes, flip them over and respray with olive oil if needed. Continue to cook for another five minutes or until they are done. Mashed potatoes may not need as long as the grated ones to air fry.

Recipe Notes

As mentioned, anyone wanting to not add eggs as a binder an use about any vegan flour instead of the egg. Also, To make this gluten free and vegan, you can use gluten free flour instead of the egg.

Draining your potatoes after they are shredded is a good way to keep the moisture down, especially when you are going to air fry your potatoes.

I like to place a paper towel or two on the bottom of a bowl and then set the grated potatoes on top to drain. Cheesecloth or even a large coffee filter should work too.
Here are some more air frying your potato pancake tips.
  1. Substitute mashed potatoes for your grated potatoes. This is especially nice to do when you have leftover mashed potatoes from another meal.
  2. Use a food processor to grate your potatoes if using a grater is not your thing.
  3. Make these low carb latkas by using cauliflower rice instead of potatoes!
