Recipe by Emily Pereira @melbourne.nutrition / Dietitian & Sports Dietitian, Makes: 15 pikelets


“Each one of these tasty pikelets provides a whopping 8.5g of protein!!
2-3 little pikelets makes the perfect post-workout breakfast. In addition to providing protein to repair the muscles, they also provide carbohydrate to replace all that energy you just burnt up and a great boost of fibre to keep you full.

Alternatively, they make a satisfying snack to help you get through the afternoon without raiding the cookie jar.”


1 cup Lupin Flakes

1 cup self-raising flour

200g low fat ricotta

2 eggs

1 cup milk
