Pikelets with Chocolate Spread and Bananas

recipe1a

INGREDIENTS

  • Breakfast Pikelets pack (can also use pancakes or crepes).
  • 1x small block of your favourite chocolate (100g+ will do).
  • Sweet William Nut-free reduced sugar chocolate spread
  • 1 small banana per person

METHOD

1. Warm pikelets . I used Woolworths brand Breakfast Pikelets. You can also use ready- made waffles, pancakes or crepes. Set aside.

2. Warm 4 tablespoons of your favourite chocolate spread in the microwave in a small bowl for 15 seconds on high. I used Sweet William nut free 25% reduced sugar chocolate spread but you can definitely use Nutella or an alternative.

3. Slice 1 small banana per person into small slices.

4. Use 2 pikelets per person . Put one pikelet on plate, drizzle melted chocolate spread, top with half the banana slices, place another pikelet on top, drizzle more chocolate spread and place the remaining banana on top. Repeat this process until all serves are finished.

Note: Use 1 tablespoon of chocolate spread and 1 banana per person.
