This is a favourite breakfast in my house. This recipe is healthier than traditional pikelets because it uses wholemeal flour and includes nutrient-rich berries and ground almonds, without any added sugar. For a delicious variation, replace the mixed berries with one mashed banana. For an extra nutrient boost, stir one tablespoon of chia seeds through the mixture.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
150g wholemeal self-raising flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
25g ground almonds
2 eggs
170ml milk
40g butter, melted, (see note)
100g fresh or frozen mixed raspberries and blueberries
maple syrup, (optional), to serve
fresh fruit, to serve

Method

  1. Combine the flour, baking powder and ground almonds in a large bowl. Make a well in the centre and add the egg, milk and melted butter. Start stirring the wet ingredients, gradually drawing in the dry ingredients until just combined – do not overmix. Gently stir through the berries.
  2. Heat a non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Working in batches, drop spoonfuls of batter into the pan and cook for 2–3 minutes on each side, or until golden and cooked through. Transfer to a plate and keep warm while cooking the remainder.
  3. Serve the warm pikelets topped with maple syrup (if using) and fresh fruit of your liking.

Nut oils

  • I love using walnut or hazelnut oil in my pikelets instead of butter – both add a beautiful flavour. If you have either on hand, replace the butter with 2 tablespoons of oil. Store nut oils in the refrigerator to maximise their shelf life and preserve nutrients.

Baby’s serve

  • For a younger baby, wait until your baby is managing some finger foods (which may not happen until 8–9 months or older) before offering him these pikelets. Omit the maple syrup and cut into strips that he can easily hold. For an older baby, serve as for a younger baby.

Toddler’s serve

  • Serve as is with just a little or no maple syrup.
