Looking for a quick, no fuss way to add a hit of protein to the school lunches?

Bel Smith of The Root Cause (Australia’s lunch box guru) says protein is so often missing in kids lunches, and it’s sooo critical to optimal firing of our kid’s brains throughout the school learning day.

So, I created this recipe to help our family with that.

These little pikelets are sweeeet, so all the kids like them – even without any toppings (which makes them great for on-the-go).

And with the sweetness all coming from whole sources – bananas and medjool dates, the little guys are getting all the fibre and good stuff that comes with it.

And the protein? Well….

Did you know that hemp seeds are super high in protein? About 30% protein actually. That’s about the same per volume as chicken!

Just 2 tbsp of hemp seeds = about 8.76g of protein. Amazing.

And they’re one of the most nutritious foods on the planet!

Rich in healthy fats, the perfect balance of omega 6 to omega 3 fatty acids, and they’re a great source of vitamin E and minerals.

If that wasn’t enough, they’re considered a complete protein source, which means they provide all the essential amino acids we need to survive. So, if you’re ever stuck somewhere with only one food, this would be a pretty great one to have!

Combine that with the eggs, which Naturopath Jessica Donovan says are nature’s superfood, and you have a powerhouse pikelet! (Side note: She says never to remove the egg yolks for kids. They have fat-soluble nutrients like vitamin A, vitamin D and vitamin E that are essential for healthy children).

To top it all off, being a ‘throw it all in the blender’ kind of pikelet, it’s easy as pie!

Well, it’s actually easier than pie.

Let me know how you go with them!

Ingredients:

1 banana
1/4 cup oats (or omit and replace with equivalent in hemp seeds – it’ll be a little stronger in taste though)
3 eggs
Deodorised coconut oil for frying (it’s safer for cooking with heat than virgin coconut oil)

 

Method:
1. Chuck all ingredients in the blender
2. Blend

3. Pour straight into fry pan (medium heat only) in small pikelet sizes. Bigger pancakes will be impossible to flip!
4. Flip carefully when it’s browned.

Enjoy!
