Grass Fed Pikelets
- 1 cup self-raising flour, sifted
- ½ teaspoon baking powder
- 1 ripe banana, mashed
- 2 tablespoons of honey
- ¾ cup of “Munchkin Grass Fed Toddler Milk”
- 1 egg
- extra honey, yoghurt and fresh berries to serve
Combine the flour and baking powder in a mixing bowl, make a well in the centre and set aside. In a separate bowl, using a whisk, combine the banana, honey, milk and egg. Mix well.
Gradually add the milk mixture to the flour, pouring it into the well you’ve created. Using the whisk, stir in the centre of the bowl so the flour grabs from the sides. Continue adding the milk mixture and whisk until smooth.
Lightly grease a non-stick pan with a spray of oil or a brush of butter and heat over medium heat. Drop heaped tablespoons of the pikelet batter into the pan and cook for a couple of minutes or until air bubbles appear on the pikelet surface. Turn them over and cook for a further minute until golden in colour.
This recipe makes around 25 pikelets. Serve with a helping of yoghurt, honey and fresh berries on the side – all the more fun for healthy dipping!
