Place the flour and baking powder in a medium bowl and make a well in the centre.


In a separate bowl, mix the banana, warm honey, milk and egg and whisk together.


Add the wet mixture to the flour a little at a time and mix with a large spoon until smooth.


Lightly spray a non-stick fry pan with olive oil and heat over a medium heat.

Add tablespoons of the batter to the pan and cook in batches for 2 minutes or cook until bubbles start to appear on the surface.


Flip and cook for a further 1-2 minutes or until golden.


Serve with yoghurt, a drizzle of honey and chopped strawberries.



You can place the pikelets in separate zip lock bags and freeze for up to 2 months.

For school spread with a little cream cheese and make a ‘sandwich’.



Add ½ cup fresh or frozen blueberries to the mix before cooking.
