Apple Oat Pikelets with Berries and Yoghurt

Delicious chunky, wholesome pikelets with the goodness of apple and oats – yum!

I can’t believe people will buy pre-cooked pikelets or pancake shaking mixes when they are so easy (and cheap) to make from scratch.

These pikelets made a fabulous Sunday afternoon snack with a lovely cup of tea, but would also go well for breakfast.  They are quite filling and feel very decadent, without supplying a ton of calories 🙂

The mix was really quick and easy to make and only dirtied 2 bowls, which was great as I hate doing the washing up!  I topped them with a store-bought 100% fruit blackcurrant jam and natural yoghurt but lemon butter or honey would also be good toppings.

Apple Oat Pikelets topped with berries and yoghurt

Makes 12 pikelets

1 large apple, grated

3/4 cup self raising flour (I used 1/2 wholemeal, 1/2 white to help increase fibre and lower the G.I.)

1/2 cup whole rolled oats

2 Tbspn brown sugar

3 teaspoons of olive oil

1 egg

1/2 cup low fat plain yoghurt

1/4 cup low fat milk

A small amount of oil, extra (around 1 teaspoon) to cook pikelets

100% fruit jam or fresh/frozen berries to serve

Natural yoghurt to serve

Method

Place grated apple, flour, oats and sugar in medium sized bowl.

In a smaller bowl, whisk egg and add oil, yoghurt and milk.

Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and fold through until fully combined.

Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat and brush with a tiny amount of oil. Spoon heaped tablespoons of mix into pan and cook for around 2 minutes.  Using a spatula, turn the pikelets over and cook for approximately 2 more minutes on the other side.

Remove from pan and keep warm on a tray placed in a warm oven while cooking the rest of the mix.

Top with either fresh berries, cooked berries or 100% fruit jam and natural yoghurt to serve.

Makes 12 pikelets

Plain pikelets have 86 calories each

Seved with 1 heaped teaspoon of 100% fruit jam and 1 tablespoon of yoghurt each = 104 calories each

Plain pikelets can be frozen for up to 1 month.  Reheat in oven or microwave or you could even try toasting them!
