Pancake Fireworks

When it comes to the 4th of July, there are two things that strike a chord in me (aside from delicious BBQ food): “The Star Spangled Banner” and Fireworks. It never fails that I cry at both of them every single time. I don’t know what it is but it is about them but that song and a good set of fireworks can always touch my heart by getting the waterworks going. Which is why I wanted to recreate these Pancake Fireworks I saw on Betty Crocker as an homage to the light display that occurs in the sky on every Independence Day.

Topped with the freshest and brightest of fruit, not only are these Pancake Fireworks celebratory and festive but they are also healthy. The perfect breakfast option to say, “Hey America, happy birthday. Have a pancake.”

Maybe my Pancake Fireworks don’t look as much like fireworks as they do, well, like budding flowers, but they are still pretty none the less and I happen to love their beautiful reds and blues. I made a simple pancake by throwing together 1/2 c. flour + 1 tsp. baking powder + 1 Tbsp. granulated sugar with 1 Tbsp. oil + 1/2 c. dairy free milk. You can also use this buckwheat pancake recipe or my perfect gluten free vegan pancake recipe
