Anyday Magic recipe makeover: Honey oat pikelets with berries and yogurt

One of my blogging goals this year was to work on developing more original recipes. So I couldn’t have been happier when I was approached by the folks at Twist Image on behalf of The Dairy Farmers of Canada to see if I would like to participate in the Anyday Magic Recipe Makeover.  The idea is that Canadians submit recipes needing a makeover (maybe because they’re bored of it or maybe their kids don’t like it), and 3 different food bloggers will makeover that recipe.

I’m pleased to announce that my first of two recipes is up over at the Anyday Magic site today!  We were challenged to makeover Jasmin’s Creamy Berry Oatmeal.  She submitted her recipe saying: “My favourite winter breakfast is hot oatmeal prepared with a spoon of yogurt and a handful of frozen berries from the summer. It’s hot and nutritious, but it’s also oatmeal, so I don’t really know how to switch it up or make it better. Help!”

I like oatmeal too but, like Jasmin, sometimes get bored. Surely there is a more fun way to combine all those healthy ingredients…. Like, for example….

Don’t they look good? They’re Honey-Oat Pikelets with Yogurt and Berries (with just a touch of cream!).  Smaller than pancakes with the texture of a crumpet, these are pretty great warm, just out of the pan, or even reheated the next day.

Want the recipe? Head on over to the Anyday Magic Recipe Makeover page and if you like the look of it, please “like” my recipe 🙂

    Wonderful, Mardi! I do love oatmeal and could probably eat it every single day of my life, but these pikelets (I love the name) would certainly be a great change! They look marvelous and so delicious!

    Very creative. I have oatmeal every morning but I never tire of it. If I do though I will definitely try your version. Thanks for sharing.

    These look great, Mardi! I don’t think I’ve ever had a pikelet before (but I have had a crumpet).
