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
1/2 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
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.
