Green Pikelets


Article by

I have huge respect for baby spinach. It is basically tasteless, so you can throw it in almost anything. But its nutritional profile is what makes it so incredible. It has a decent amount of potassium which is protective of the cardiovascular system, not to mention the antioxidants, fibre, calcium, vitamin C, and iron just to name a few. Once all plated with your favourite toppings, the colour is just beautiful.


1 cup milk (oat milk is a healthy alternative)
11⁄2 cups baby spinach
1 egg
2 tablespoons maple syrup (or 1 tablespoon honey)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
11⁄2 cups plain flour (spelt flour is a healthy alternative)
1 teaspoon cinnamon Pinch of salt
1 teaspoon baking powder 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
1/3 cup fruit of your choice (my go-to is sliced banana and strawberries)
2 tablespoons full-fat Greek yoghurt


Place wet ingredients in a high-speed blender and blend until smooth. Transfer to a bowl.
Add dry ingredients and whisk only until just combined. Transfer to a jug and set aside.

Place a large pan on medium to low heat and lightly grease with butter or oil. Pour pikelet mix to desired size and cook until small bubbles appear. Flip and cook for a further few minutes. Transfer to a plate with a paper towel and repeat to cook all remaining batter.

Serve with honey, yoghurt and your favourite fruit.
