Kids have just arrived home from school and got stuck into their homework, so while they were doing that I quickly prepared a healthy after school snack for them, Ham & Zucchini Pikelets with a spoonful of herbed yoghurt.  They really enjoyed them, something different and savoury for afternoon tea.

Made these today (with a few substitutions to make them gluten free) for my fussy 3yr old and she loved them! Although I must admit mine didn’t look as pretty as yours! 🙂

Can these be frozen? I noticed it serves 12 but I only have two small boys who don’t eat much.
