Who remembers pikelets? We do! Not just from the supermarket but from our primary school canteen! They used to be 5 cents each, we’d buy them in lots of 20 and share them with our friends… and they’d be covered in butter and they’d be seriously yum.
We also remember cheese buns and giant twins and zoopa doopers which were also pretty darn freaking yum. But seriously full of crap.
What are school canteens like these days? Would definitely be interested to hear from mums, dads and families on this topic!
Anyway! That’s why we HAD to make paleo pikelets! Seriously. Teeny weeny pancakes = pikelets. Who came up with that name? Oh well, who ever did is a genius, because it’s a fun word to say. Who came up with the mini pancakes thing? They’re also a genius because anything in teeny weeny, mini food form is awesome. Think mini pizzas, mini muffins, mini cheesecakes, mini everything! Yep, awesome!
We vote you make these for mid-morning snack, perfect topped with berries and butter! We get organic frozen berries (the OOB Brand, they taste so good) from our faves Supabarn… seriously, they just keep adding more and more amazing products to their shelves. It should be called MerryBarn.
Or why not drizzle in chocolate. What ever floats your merry-paleo-pikelet-boat!
