Oat Pancakes with Banana & Cinnamon or Raspberry & Vanilla

By

Oat Pancakes with Banana & Cinnamon or Raspberry & Vanilla

For many years I've made the smaller version (pikelets) for my kid's lunch boxes and they've always been popular. Traditional pancakes (or pikelets) made with refined white flour, sugar and and egg are fairly low on nutrition though, especially fibre. 

I developed this recipe a few years ago to boost the nutrition in the humble pancake and still provide a tasty option for the kid's lunch boxes (or breakfast!).

Cornflake & Chia Lunch Box Cookies
Most kids love a classic cornflake cookie! I've taken this classic recipe and given it a boost in nutrition. These cookies are a great source of fibre, iron, B vitamins and have a nice little hit of Omega 3 fatty acids thanks to the chia seeds and they still taste like the classic cornflake cookie we all love!

Apple Cinnamon Crumble Muffins with Zucchini

Apple Cinnamon Crumble Muffins with Zucchini
These moorishly fluffy apple crumble muffins with zucchini will disappear so fast you'll wish you made a double batch! Home made baked goods are a great way to boost your child's intake of fruit, veggies and fibre. If your child is a little averse to "green bits" then I'd suggest peeling both the apple and the zucchini in this recipe. If they're happy with "bits" in their muffins, then leave the skin on for an extra boost in fibre and nutrition.
