Power Pikelets Recipe

My kids love a wholesome savoury pikelet for breakfast, lunch or a snack. This basic recipe can be altered to accommodate any combination of vegetables or flavours your kids like and is a nourishing addition to school lunches. Give lunch a nutrient boost and replace your bread with pikelets for a pikelet sandwich!

Makes: 20 pikelets 



  • 50g cheese, grated
  • 200g vegetables such as zucchini, carrot, spinach & basil, grated or processed
  • 2 eggs
  • 300mL full-fat milk
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • Sea salt & pepper, to taste
  • 1½ cups approx. wholemeal spelt flour
  1. In bowl or food processor, grate or process cheese and vegetables. If they are very watery, squeeze out liquid. Set aside.
  2. Without rinsing food processor, beat together eggs, milk, baking powder and seasoning.
  3. Add vegetables, cheese and flour and mix until just combined.
  4. Melt a little butter, ghee or coconut oil in non-stick pan over medium–hot heat.
  5. Pour small amounts of batter into pan (how big they are is up to you) and flip when batter starts to bubble and edges brown.
  6. Serve however you like. My favourite methods are topped with butter or hummus; smoked salmon and labneh or avocado; or with pesto.
