Carrot cakes are so well loved so it is only fair that we have a recipe for a healthier option for when the sugar cravings are peaking. This recipe is a breakfast option for fussy kids at breakfast time, you can rest assure to give them a few pikelets to munch on in the morning and send them off to school with something of sustenence in their tummies.
This has to be one of my simplest recipes to date! A recipe where you just throw everything in a food processor or blender, blitz and cook. I cannot make cooking any easier than this!
The best part of this recipe is there is not one speck of flour or refined sugar in these beauties!
Get your kids involved in cooking these delightful pikletes or turn them into bigger pancakes, either way they are scrumptious.
