  • 2 cups self-raising flour
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 tbs butter melted
  • 2 eggs beaten

  1. Sift self-raising flour and salt into a bowl.
  2. Whisk in sugar, butter, eggs and milk until smooth.
  3. Add mashed bananas and stir mixture well.
  4. Heat a frying pan with a little oil or butter and pour batter to form small circles.
  5. When pikelets bubble on top, flip and cook the other side until brown.

 

Our Tips:

  • To add a little extra nutrition, we suggest swapping the normal self raising flour for a wholemeal version.
  • Try reducing the sugar to 1/4 cup or swapping for an unrefined sugar such as coconut sugar, rapadura, etc.
  • To make this dairy free, use coconut oil in place of butter and swap the milk for almond or soy.
  • Use very ripe bananas for a sweeter pikelet.
  • Add in 1 tablespoon of chia seeds.
  • Puree berries for an all natural topping.
