Latke Recipe - Low Fat

While waiting in the doctors office I grabbed a magazine and noticed a recipe for low fat potato latkes that included 2 egg whites, 4 large potatoes, 1 T lemon juice, 2 T flour and grated onion.

The recipe stated that the batter should be placed on a regular (not thermal) cookie sheet that has been sprayed. The latkes should be baked for about 15 minutes at 475 degrees and then turned over to continue until the desired crispness is reached.

I wonder if this recipe will really works? The lemon juice is a great idea for keeping the latke batter from turning green (I have seen the use of vinegar for this purpose also).

If baking the latkes in the oven would turn out anything close to a fried latke, my husband would love them as per his diet I don't know if he remembers what potato pancakes (latkes) taste like?

He is very excited about our trying this recipe in the near future.
