Kombucha Pikelets with Coconut Labneh and Citrus & Orange Blossom Syrup

Kombucha Pikelets with Coconut Labneh and Citrus & Orange Blossom Syrup


Who doesn't love warm, fluffy, scrummy pikelets? Especially a beautiful, gluten free, vegan version that has absolutely no guilt factor. I love the amazing combination of flavours in this beautiful recipe by Alison Buchanan (@atortiselife) as well as the gut healing benefits that come from the bananas and kombucha. This a certainly going to quickly become a Sunday morning favourite in our home!
