You know it’s going to be a good day when pikelets are on the menu for breakfast! Especially when they are 100% clean, healthy and packed with protein. These delicious babies are gluten free and feature our Vanilla Whey Protein Concentrate making them taste extra creamy and delicious plus they provide at least 12g of protein per serve!

Bound to impress and satisfy dad this Father’s Day, all you need is 20 minutes. Start by making the oh-so-delicious strawberry cream by processing the ingredients (besides chia seeds) together in a blender (don’t forget to reserve 3 strawberries for the topping). If you want it to taste creamier, you can use vanilla yoghurt. However, the addition of Monk Fruit Powder adds a burst of natural sweetness (did you know that Monk Fruit Powder is 10x sweeter than sugar? So a little goes a long way). Once you’ve made the strawberry cream, add in the chia seeds, this will thicken it up a bit. Set aside in a small jug or bowl and now it’s time to start on the main attraction!

To make the pikelets, simply combine all the ingredients together in a bowl, making sure you’ve mashed the banana before adding the other ingredients. Mix the pikelet ingredients altogether so that you have a nice smooth consistency, then its time to cook them up.

Cook the pikelets until both sides are golden on a coconut oiled skillet. Whilst they’re cooking, slice up your reserved strawberries. Serve the pikelets with the strawberry cream & fresh strawberries & pomegranate seeds…YUM!!
