This is a great way to get children to try different-coloured fruits. The portions are only bite-sized, so they’re more approachable, plus everyone knows eating food from a stick tastes better.

Makes: 12 skewers (with leftover pikelets for the freezer)



  • 2 eggs
  • ¾ cup drinking coconut milk (in carton)
  • 2 tbsp shredded coconut
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 small banana, peeled
  • 1 cup spelt flour
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • Coconut oil, for pan-frying
  • 12 bamboo skewers
  • Fresh fruit, coconut yoghurt & maple syrup, to serve
  1. Place eggs, coconut milk, shredded coconut, vanilla and banana in blender and blitz until smooth.
  2. Place spelt flour, salt and baking powder in mixing bowl and pour in the blender mixture. Stir to combine.
  3. Brush a frying pan with coconut oil and add small tbsp of mixture, cooking 3-4 at a time. Cook until bubbles appear on surface, then flip and cook for 30 secs more. Transfer to plate and repeat with remaining mixture.
  4. Slice one pikelet into quarters and thread onto skewer alternately with favourite fresh fruit. Repeat with all skewers. You will have some pikelets left over. Place in container and freeze.* Serve with coconut yoghurt and maple syrup for dipping.
  5. *You can pop frozen pikelets straight into the toaster for a quick breakfast on another day.
