I promised my youngest pikelets for lunch today but wanted to try something a little different than the usual flour, milk, eggs etc. I found this recipe over at http://delicioussnacks.wordpress.com/ and i thought we'd give it a go.
My 2.5 year old gobbled them up (always a good sign) so i thought i would share the recipe as i made a few changes to the original.
2 x small apples (grated)
3 / 4 cup flour (i used a mixture of wholemeal self raising and rye flour)
1/2 cup rolled oats
1 x tbspn brown sugar
2 x tspns olive oil
1 x egg
1/2 cup yoghurt
1/4 cup milk
1 x teaspoon vanilla extract
Pinch of cinnamon
Oil to cook pikelets (i used rice bran)
Yoghurt, fruit etc to serve
Put apple, flour, oats and sugar into a large bowl.
In a separate bowl, combine oil, egg, yoghurt and milk, cinnamon and vanilla extract.
Add the yoghurt mixture to the apple/oats mixture and fold through until combined.
Heat a small amount of oil in a pan and put tablespoons of mixture into the pan. Cook for 2 minutes then turn and cook the other side for 2 minutes.
Top with fresh or frozen fruit, yoghurt, honey - whatever you like :)
