Apple Maple Syrup

Pure maple syrup is unquestionably delicious, but it’s also high in calories and a bit expensive. To reduce the cost to your waistline and your wallet, try this fabulous blend. It is so easy to make, adds a bit of extra nutrition, and extends the maple syrup while retaining all of its magnificent flavor. It’s the perfect topping for pancakes, waffles, or French toast.

Makes about 1 cup


1/2 cup pure maple syrup
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce

Stir together maple syrup and applesauce until well blended. Serve at room temperature, or warm briefly over low heat. Store leftovers in the refrigerator.
