buckwheat pikelet main

Gluten and guilt free!

I love this recipe from my friend Sue.

Just four ingredients whizzed in the blender, and cooked in a pan. A high protein brekkie or snack that tastes delicious in no time flat.  This is the perfect single serve recipe,  tasty, healthy and so easy!

The hero ingredient is the cottage cheese. It’s very high in protein, low fat, and you won’t even taste it!




  1. 2 tablespoons of buckwheat flour
  2. ½ tub of cottage cheese (reserve other half for your next batch)
  3. 1 egg
  4. ½ tsp baking powder

variations – add ¼ cup of blueberries or ½ ripe banana (mashed)


  1.  Use a stick mixer or blender  to whizz  all ingredients together until just smooth (you may need a splash of milk  – soy, almond, rice, regular) don’t over mix
  2. Melt a teaspoon full of coconut oil in a shallow fry pan
  3. Over low to medium heat, pour mixture straight from blender (or use a spoon) to form 4 small pikelets in the pan
  4. Wait for small bubbles to form on the surface, then flip each pikelet over

  5. When cooked through transfer to a plate’
  6. Repeat with any remaining mixture

(NB: these pikelets have a darker colour than regular pikelets due to the buckwheat flour)
