Savoury Pikelets – Low FODMAP, Gluten Free

November 2,2018

This months Recipe ReDux was created by Everyday Nutrition’s newest dietitian, Marnie Nitschke.

​Marnie has a wealth of experience in private consulting, clinical dietetics and particularly gastrointestinal nutrition. Marnie has spent the last 10 years in a senior role at Shepherd Works. With the sad news of Shepherd Works’ recent closure, Marnie and Joanna seized the opportunity to work together, combining our shared passion for evidence based gut health. We are really excited to welcome her to the Everyday Nutrition team.

We can all get stuck in a rut with breakfast, and sometimes it helps to have a bit of inspiration to step away from the cereal and toast!

Rise and Shine with a Savory Breakfast
The trend of protein-packed breakfasts is catching on…and back-to-school time is looming. This month, show us new healthy takes on eating savory or dinner-inspired dishes for breakfast. Think egg burritos, beans and rice, or maybe even pasta

These cheesy, savoury pikelets are simple to make, and a nice variation on the sweet variety. They are delicious straight from the pan, but also reheat well for a quick snack, and fit the bill for novel school lunch snacks. We hope you enjoy them!

* The addition of sorghum flour ups the fibre and nutrient content, but if you can’t find sorghum you could try teff or just use all gluten free flour
