Paleo Pikelets AKA Yummy Mini Pancakes.

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!

Always merrymaking,

  1. Hi, I really really dislike coconut flour. What would you suggest replacing it with?

  4. Hi, the pikelets tasted great! πŸ™‚ But the mixture was very runny, should I add more coconut flour next time?

    The mix is meant to be runny (well… more runny than regular pikelets!). If you’d like to try with more coconut flour go for it!

  6. What’s the difference between using carton coconut milk and canned coconut milk?

  8. ….we made these earlier – similar recipe obtained elsewhere, they were very awkward and nothing like a pikelet, not edible. is the key always to pulse/blend so the mix isn’t floury/grainy? will try your version soon! fingers crossed second go is better.

    Hi Kat, definitely will be harder to flip than a regular gluten filled pikelet! Trick is to go slow. We use a Vitamix and the mix goes perfectly smooth. Suggest whizzing longer… however if you don’t have a high powered blender/processor it may not go as smooth. Let us know how you go! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  10. These are so delicious. I’m dairy intolerant so used coconut butter in the mixture in place of the butter. Also didn’t have carton coconut milk so used almond milk instead. Trick is to cook on low heat and wait until the top is no longer glossy before you flip, they stay together well if you wait. I used a half tablespoon measuring spoon to pour the batter into the pan and it was perfect. My pregnant belly couldn’t get enough AND my husband loved them πŸ™‚ Thank you, ladies πŸ™‚
