These Wholemeal Apple and Cinnamon Pikelets are our new favourite morning tea snack!
Now that we’re well into the school year, I’ve been looking for some more snacks I can make to add to his lunchbox. Pikelets are one of our favourite snacks, so I decided to have a play around with our favourite Pikelet recipe to make it a little more lunchbox friendly.
By simply substituting the plain flour with wholemeal self raising flour and leaving out the caster sugar (you can add it if you prefer a little extra sweetness, a good idea if you like to eat these plain), these pikelets become a fairly healthy snack option for the kids.
This recipe makes around 24 pikelets (depending on the size you make them of course) and they can also be made ahead of time and frozen to help make those crazy school mornings (which we always seem to have!) just that little bit easier!
We love these pikelets served with strawberry jam (both hot or cold) or warm with some extra butter on top – yum!
