Ingredients

1/2 cup self-raising flour
1/4 cup quinoa flakes
1/4 cup rolled oats
1/2 tsp bicarbonate soda
1 flax or chia egg, or 1 egg
3/4 cup milk (I used soy milk)
1 small apple, peeled and diced
1/3 cup strawberries, roughly chopped

Oil spray, for coating the pan

Optional: 1 - 2 tsp cocoa powder

Method


1. Combine the flour, quinoa flakes, oats and bicarbonate soda in a large mixing bowl.


2. In a small bowl, prepare your flax / chia egg or egg. Add to the dry mixture along with the milk, and stir well to combine. Mix through the diced apple and strawberries


3. Heat a non-stick pan over medium-high heat and drop dessertspoonfuls of mixture onto the pan. I did 3 pikelets at a time. Cook until bubbles start to appear (~1 minute) and then flip and repeat, so both sides are browned. Repeat for the other pikelets.


Optional: Add cocoa powder to the last quarter or so of batter, to make 4 or 5 chocolate pikelets.
