I grew up eating lefse during the holidays and it was always a favorite treat. We have been gluten-free for years now and I decided it was time to come up with a grain free version of this holiday favorite. This recipe took a bit of work, but it was worth it because these grain free lefse are delicious!

Grain Free Lefse

Ingredients:

  • 6 cups potatoes (cooked and riced or pureed)
  • 1 stick grass-fed butter (1/2 cup)
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 2 cups cassava flour, plus more for dusting — where to find

Directions:

First, some tips: 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. Second, 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 perfecti0n! HERE is a kit that has everything needed.

  • Once well chilled, stir in the flour

  • Divide dough into balls about 1.5″ across, depending on how large you want your lefse

  • Heat a griddle to 350°F
  • Generously flour your work surface

  • Put your sleeve on your rolling pin and dust that with flour
  • Roll dough very thin, like 1/8″

  • Using your lefse stick, gently lift your dough off the work surface and place it onto the hot griddle

  • Let it cook about 2 minutes, then use your lefse stick to flip the dough

  • Place in on a lefse mat and cover with another lefse mat (this keeps them from drying out)
  • Continue until all of your dough balls are used up

  • Store in a plastic bag in the fridge
  • Serve with your favorite filling. We love butter, cinnamon, and sugar!
  • 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
  • This recipe makes 50, because I share these with friends and family over the holidays
