Sometimes you need a pikelet that tastes and feels a lot like those you can buy from the supermarket. You know the ones – kids love ’em in their lunches. 

We know the supermarket version of pikelets detract from our kid’s health. In fact, of the 16 ingredients used in the brand I looked at, only 2 (two!) of them were not guilty of damaging our precious health (water and baking soda). 

And don’t we mostly eat to fuel our bodies to thrive and function their best?!

I’ve been making a supercharged version of pikelets for ages (see it HERE), but today we felt like some run-of-the-mill “supermarket” type pikelets.

Of course, I didn’t rush out and buy some. I just made them quick smart.

These babies are super quick and tasty, will likely get past the fussy kid’s noses, and contribute to our health instead of taking away from our health.

Enjoy.

 

Ingredients:

1 cup white spelt flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 egg
1 cup milk of choice
1/2 – 1 banana (optional, but it makes the pikelet oh-so-soft-and-delicious)
2 tablespoons date paste (or 2 medjool dates)
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)

Method:

  1. Throw all ingredients into the blender and whizz up until smooth.
  2. Heat pan with a little deodorised coconut oil or butter.
  3. Pour a small amount of mixture straight from the blender into a pikelet size. Fit as many in the pan as you comfortably can.
    *If you’ve added banana, leave more room in between each – they become a little trickier to flip, but you’ll get the hang of it real quick.
  4. Cook until brown on one side, flip and repeat

Laini Oldfield

Laini Oldfield ~ Founder, The Wholefood Collective

Trying to eat nutrient-dense food free of pesticides and additives was driving Laini, Jordan and their 5 kids nuts! So the Wholefood Collective (TWC) was born. Started from their garage for their own family, TWC now makes whole foods ‘doable’ for every Aussie family, through access to highly vetted, home delivered, organic whole foods at big savings.

Her favourite part of the job though? Supporting people with simple solutions to get robust nutrition happening at their place.

Laini's biggest achievement is bringing her own family across the line, but she's also personally helped over 13,000 families to better nutrition and energy through TWC's signature 21-Day 'Wholefood My Family' Challenge, and at live workshops.

With a particular interest in using food to help achieve specific health goals (functional food), and strategies to boost nutrition in family meals without being 'detected', Laini loves discovering more about the powerful force for good that food can play in our lives, and then putting that to work.

Laini's goal is to see more Aussies thrive with clear minds, plenty of energy, stable moods, and robust immunity, through the nourishment that comes to body and mind through real food.
