Greenwood Recipe: Apple Oaty Pikelets

If your children have allergies, or if you’re simply hoping to get more fruit into their diet, this is a great base recipe that has no eggs or dairy, and is naturally sweetened. Get the children to help by measuring and mixing.  


¾ cups oats 

¾ cup self raising flour 

½ cup apple puree, or 1 ripe mashed banana 

½-3/4 cup dairy free milk (soy, oat, or rice milk) 



1/ Place oats and flour into a medium bowl. Combine the apple and ½ cup milk. Make a well in the centre of the flour mixture, add wet mixture to flour and blend until smooth. Add extra milk if you prefer a thinner batter. 

2/ Drop spoonfuls into greased heated pan, cook for 1-2 min each side.   


OPTIONAL – Why not add a berry chia jam? 

Makes 2 cups  can keep for up to 1 week 



2 cups frozen or fresh raspberries or blueberries 

2 tablespoons chia seeds 

1 tablespoon lemon or lime juice
