Need a quick snack for the kids? This Easy Banana Pikelets recipe is for you!
We love Pikelets, you only need a few ingredients, they are simple to make and you can get a whole heap of them from one batch. These easy Banana Pikelets are a favourite recipe in our house, and my boys love to enjoy these for breakfast or as a special treat at morning or afternoon tea time.
Tips for Making Banana Pikelets:
- When making this recipe, try to use the ripest bananas that you can – the browner the better! This helps to give these pikelets their sweetness.
- I like to store them in a freezer safe container and then just grab a couple out as needed.
- I find that I can add them to my kids lunchboxes in the morning and they will have defrosted by morning break.
For a Healthier Banana Pikelet Recipe:
- Omit the caster sugar if you like. If you are doing this, just make sure that the bananas you are using are brown.
How to Serve Banana Pikelets:
These Pikelets are delicious when served on their own, however we also like to serve them with extra chopped banana pieces or with a thick and yummy layer of raspberry jam.
