Hot cross pikelets for a tasty Easter breakfast

The kids will LOVE these cute Easter-themed pikelets for a family breakfast.  The batter has a lovely festive feel with the addition of fruit and spices.

You can swap out the dried fruit for other options if your family don’t like currants or cranberries.

28 Day Weight Loss Challenge members have access to lots of family friendly recipes that will help feed the family this Easter. Think homemade chocolate bunnies, gluten free hot cross buns, and even Mini Tiramisu. Find out more about the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge here.
