Grain Free Lefse

I grew up eating Lefse, it's a family tradition. But I came up with a grain-free version for my family. All you need is 5 ingredients and a lefse kit to make this delicious flatbread.



    1. For the potatoes: boil, mash, and puree.

    2. Combine potatoes, butter, cream, and salt together in a large mixing bowl.
    3. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for 2 hours or overnight.
    4. Once well chilled, stir in the flour.
    5. Divide dough into balls about 1.5″ across, depending on how large you want your lefse.

    6. Heat a griddle to 350°F.
    7. Generously flour your work surface.
    8. Put your sleeve on your rolling pin and dust that with flour.
    9. Roll dough very thin, like 1/8″.
    10. Using your lefse stick, gently lift your dough off the work surface and place it onto the hot griddle.

    11. Let it cook about 2 minutes, then use your lefse stick to flip the dough.
    12. Place in on a lefse mat and cover with another lefse mat (this keeps them from drying out).
    13. Continue until all of your dough balls are used up.
    14. Store in a plastic bag in the fridge.
    15. Serve with your favorite filling. We love butter, cinnamon, and sugar!
    16. IMPORTANT: to reheat and serve, warm them up in a dry skillet on medium-high heat. It will soften them. Otherwise, they will be very brittle and won’t roll up well.


Some tips:

  1. Your potatoes have to be either riced or pureed, there can be NO lumps. I do not have a ricer, so I pureed them in my food processor.
  2. You really need some of the special Lefse making equipment. Namely: the griddle, the lefse stick, and the lefse mat. These assure that your lefse is made to perfection! HERE is a kit that has everything needed.

  1. I also have to be dairy free. do you think I could sub coconut oil for the butter and full fat coconut cream for the whipping cream?
    Thank you

    1. I am not sure that subbing coconut oil will work, but it’s worth a try. The coconut cream should do okay. Let me know how it turns out!
