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.
1 cup white spelt flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
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)
- Throw all ingredients into the blender and whizz up until smooth.
- Heat pan with a little deodorised coconut oil or butter.
- 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.
- Cook until brown on one side, flip and repeat
