Today on the website, I am thrilled to be able to share a recipe with you from the lovely Amy Crawford, health and wellness practitioner and founder of the online wellness hub The Holistic Ingredient.
Amy has a new book out, Nourishing Kids and you guessed it, it’s all about healthy recipes for kids!
There are 25 recipes and they are all gluten-free and refined sugar free. There are four sections to the book and Amy has recipes for breakfast, lunchboxes, parties and dinner. It’s an allergy-friendly book as most recipes are also dairy free and some are vegan as well.
For $12.95, I think it’s great value. It’s beautifully designed with lots of colour and is appealing to kids. Even my teenagers thought it was great and had their eye on a few recipes. You can win yourself a copy too, see the bottom of the article!
Makes 40 small pikelets.
1 ½ cups buckwheat flour
1 cup tapioca flour
2 tablespoons coconut flour
2/3 cup milk of choice (coconut milk, almond milk, rice milk etc)
3 tablespoons raw honey
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
Pinch sea salt
Coconut oil for frying
In a large mixing bowl whisk the eggs. Sieve the flours into the bowl and add all remaining ingredients. Stir to combine, ensuring no lumps in the batter.
Heat a frying pan over medium heat and melt 1 teaspoon coconut oil. Spoon dessertspoons of the mixture into the pan. Cook for 1 minute or until bubbles form. Flip and cook for less than a minute or until golden. Repeat with the remaining batter, adding more coconut oil as required.
