Sometimes life can throw you some sneaky punches, making you feel a bit melancholy. No matter your worries, often you just need to step back and take stock of the simple pleasures that make life so delicious. Hanging out in your jammies, building forts with blankets and pillows, eating pancakes and alliteration.
Like these Fluffy Fruited Flapjacks.
Ok, they’re actually Fluffy Fruited Pancakes, but I think Fluffy Fruited Flapjacks sounds much more Fun (get it, another “F”).
These really were amazingly fluffy – like crazy fluffy. But in a good way. Today we rocked them up with some banana goodness, but any fruit would make them smashingly good. I’m just sure of it. We also go to enjoy some real, authentic Canadian Maple Syrup hand delivered with love by our friend Kimianak. You really can taste the “special delivery” difference. Trust me.
I think my Sweet Freedom Saturday posts will grow more infrequent as I continue reveling in the summer sun and enjoy being outside and not being in the kitchen as much as possible, but I’m sure they’ll be a few SF posts between now and September!

Oh man, fluffy flapjacks AND fruit?! yum!
I eat more pancakes now that I am a vegan. Yes go out and enjoy the summer. I will do the same thing even if it is summer everyday here lol. I do like 3 post a week and sometimes schedule them and I make enough for leftovers.
It seems like it’s been ages since I’ve had a stack of nice, fluffy pancakes (unless you count the flat hockey pucks at the rehab facility..lol), so when I saw yours, I knew I had to have one soon, but with uhhh…(I can feel you shaking your head and saying tsk tsk) sausage and bacon dipped in the syrup! *Hiding* Ok ok, I need to check out this book, but I doubt mine would come out as beautiful as yours!
Can it be the weekend again? I missed out on making pancakes this time around and those look so darn good!
Pancakes are my all-time fave. Hands down. Can’t wait to try this!
dangit… that’s what my weekend was missing!
