Heart-healthy Breakfast

nice stack of pikelets

Nothing really beats a warm hot breakfast that’s filling, yummy and healthy.

Don’t you agree?

I feel better when I’ve started my day with a feel-good meal. In fact, I prefer simple breakfasts.

Stuff like bread and pancakes!

Today, I made wholemeal pikelets. Yep, it’s my second try. The previous attempt didn’t turn out quite right because I used the wrong flour! This time, I got it right. I used organic wholemeal flour from Origins Healthfood.

Pikelets are actually similar to crumpets – it’s a quickbread version. And I really dig these fluffy yummy things. I love it that it’s uber healthy too.

Wholemeal flour is good for you! Haha… it really is. Check out the texture of these pikelets:


I made quite a bit so I left some for my younger sis, who ate them all up! Talk about a good morning appetite. She had hers with Manuka honey.

I had mine with bananas. Please do try out these pikelets. They’re really easy and fool proof. Tastes great with jam, maple syrup or berries! Enjoy 🙂

from bills food by Bill Granger

125g wholemeal plain (all-purpose) flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons raw sugar
1 egg
170ml milk
butter, for greasing the pan

Sift the flour and baking powder into a bowl. Add the sugar and stir. Add the egg and milk and whisk until smooth. Heat a large, non-stick pan over medium heat and brush with butter. Spoon tablespoons of the batter into the pan. Cook each for 1-2 minutes or until bubbles appear on the surface. Then flip and cook for another 30 seconds. Makes about 12.

** Note: You can use less sugar like I did (as usual!) and there’s no need to grease the pan if you’re using a non-stick like me! Haha, even healthier!

Oh this one sure looks goood! And the recipe is easy too! Id be sure to try it once I get the flour. Where can I get the flour babe? I always go to Parkway .. Not sure if Cold storage has it .. or any wholemeal flour will do? 125g is 1 cup yeah? Thanx for the recipe! I love simple breakfast too!

It’s sure healthy.. 🙂 I also love making stuff with wholemeal flour too. Bill Granger is my fave author of all cookbooks. His recipes are all so simple and easy to follow!

It’s been some time since we last catch up!

callen: oh you poor thing, please drink more water and eat more vit. C! and yes, you def. have to try these out 🙂

michie: you can get the flour from NTUC or Cold Storage. Actually don’t have to be organic la. Hmm make sure you get the one which is mixed with normal flour. Don’t use the one which has purely wholemeal (you can see the brown grains clearly)… I used that last time and it came out wrong. actually i think 125g is half cup + 1 tablespoon. Enjoy!

Linda: yea i second that. oh yes, it’s been quite a while! been so busy with school and all. we’ll catch up soon ya..

My Space: ya, it’s sweet ain’t it? It’s a Mary Engelbreit plate. Heard of the brand before? (www.maryengelbreit.com)

hello.. i was wondering if its possible to ‘pre-make’ the batter a night before? so don’t have to rush in the morning to make brekkie.. =D
