Nothing really beats a warm hot breakfast that's filling, yummy and healthy.
Don't you agree?
I feel better when I've started my day with a feel-good meal. In fact, I prefer simple breakfasts.
Stuff like bread and pancakes!
Today, I made wholemeal pikelets. Yep, it's my second try. The previous attempt didn't turn out quite right because I used the wrong flour! This time, I got it right. I used organic wholemeal flour from Origins Healthfood.
Pikelets are actually similar to crumpets - it's a quickbread version. And I really dig these fluffy yummy things. I love it that it's uber healthy too.
Wholemeal flour is good for you! Haha... it really is. Check out the texture of these pikelets:
I made quite a bit so I left some for my younger sis, who ate them all up! Talk about a good morning appetite. She had hers with Manuka honey.
I had mine with bananas. Please do try out these pikelets. They're really easy and fool proof. Tastes great with jam, maple syrup or berries! Enjoy :)

125g wholemeal plain (all-purpose) flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons raw sugar
butter, for greasing the pan
Sift the flour and baking powder into a bowl. Add the sugar and stir. Add the egg and milk and whisk until smooth. Heat a large, non-stick pan over medium heat and brush with butter. Spoon tablespoons of the batter into the pan. Cook each for 1-2 minutes or until bubbles appear on the surface. Then flip and cook for another 30 seconds. Makes about 12.
** Note: You can use less sugar like I did (as usual!) and there's no need to grease the pan if you're using a non-stick like me! Haha, even healthier!
