Vanilla Almond Pikelets


A recipe from Sami Bloom and Califia Farms

Makes 15 pikelets

1 cup Califia Farms Unsweetened Vanilla Almond milk
1 cup + 2 tbsp plain flour
2 tbsp ground flaxseeds
2 tbsp maple syrup
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tbsp lemon juice
Coconut oil, to cook
Toppings ¾ cup frozen blueberries
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 tbsp maple syrup
Crushed almonds

1. Use a sieve to sift flour and baking powder into a medium bowl.
2. Mix in ground flaxseeds. Pour in almond milk, lemon juice and maple syrup and whisk until smooth.
3. Melt coconut oil in a large flat pan over medium heat.
4. After 1-2 mins, pour 1.5 tbsp batter into the pan. Cook for 3 mins before flipping over and cooking the other side for a further 2-3 mins.
5. Repeat until you have used all the batter.
6. At the same time, melt frozen blueberries in a saucepan or microwave. Lightly mash with a fork. Pour blueberry sauce into a ramekin and stir through the maple syrup and chia seeds. Allow to sit for 15 mins (whilst you cook pikelets), in order to thicken.
7. Stack pikelets and dollop with blueberry chia jam and a sprinkle of crushed almonds.

Using Califia Farms Unsweetened Vanilla Almond milk which has no added sugar and a hint of vanilla, they're the perfect Sunday morning brunch or even a quick week-day breakfast, because they're freezer-friendly! My daughter loves them too."
