Gluten Free Pikelets

Gluten Free Pikelets

Pikelets are so much fun to make and eat. I feel like a big kid when I’m making these with my little ones. It brings back lots of memories of making pikelets with my mum. I love these Gluten Free Pikelets so much because they’re easy to make, taste great and demonstrate that you can still eat yummy, special treats when you’ve chosen not to eat gluten, dairy and sugar.

I whiz these up in my Thermomix in about 20 seconds and then fry them in a little bit of coconut oil. You can use a big bowl and electric beaters or a whisk to mix these Gluten Free Pikelets too.

I love to serve these with fresh fruit, like bananas and strawberries, and drizzled with a little bit of pure maple syrup. These are guaranteed to disappear fast!

Gluten Free Pikelets


  • 220g (2 cups) of plain gluten free flour
  • 500g (2.5 cups) of non-dairy milk (e.g. soy milk or almond milk)
  • 2 tablespoons of pure maple syrup
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons of gluten free baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon of ground vanilla powder
  • Coconut oil for frying
  • Extra pure maple syrup to serve

Thermomix Method

  1. Place all of the ingredients into your Thermomix bowl and mix on speed 4 for 15 seconds. Scrape down the sides of the bowl with your spatula. Mix for a further 1o seconds on speed 4.
  2. Heat a large non-stick frying pan on medium heat and add one teaspoon of coconut oil. Pour small, pikelet-sized amounts of the batter into the pan and cook until bubbles appear on the top. Turn over the pikelets and cook for a further minute or two until both sides are golden. Remove the pikelets onto a plate to cool slightly and repeat this process until you have used all of the Gluten Free Pikelet batter.
  3. Serve hot or cold with a drizzle of pure maple syrup and fresh fruit if desired.

Conventional Method

  1. Place the egg and non-dairy milk into a large mixing bowl and beat with electric beaters or a whisk until combined.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and continue to beat until you have a smooth pikelet batter.
  3. Follow steps 2 and 3 above in the Thermomix Method above.
