I have one kid who would happily eat two eggs on toast, some fruit and yoghurt and then something else if it was on offer for breakfast every single morning and one kid who doesn’t want to eat a thing. I kind of get the second one, sometimes you don’t feel like eating anything for breakfast but as we all know, that’s no way to start the day and have the energy and focus that you need for a day of work/school/preschool. These pikelets are quick and easy to eat, fill up a little person’s tummy before heading off to Preschool. I once saw Jamie Oliver whack in some grated apple into the mix and it works a treat to sweeten up the mix and give it a bit more substance. This isn’t an everyday thing, but an every now and then thing that works for our fussy breakfast eater.
1 cup SR flour
1 cup milk
1 cup grated apple
1. Throw the flour, egg and milk into a bowl and give it a good whisk until smooth
2. Peel and grate the apple and throw into the mix
3. Spoon into a hot buttered pan and cook for a minute or so each side until golden brown
4. Serve up as they are (you could add a little butter or honey if you wanted) we go plain

Is breakfast a battle for you or any of yours?
Got any ideas that work?
