While syrup is certainly a food group on its own…
… That doesn’t mean I always want to drown my pancakes in the sugary stuff. Also, the group stuff (real maple syrup) is kind of pricey, so I usually don’t buy syrup and sub it out for other sweet toppings.
Normally, I scoop Greek yogurt over my pancakes. This special twist really kicked it up a notch.
Sweet Syrup Alternative
Ingredients (for one servings):
- 1/4 cup plain regular or Greek yogurt
- 2 pitted Medjool dates (if using smaller dates, use 4 – 5)
- Combine in food processor until mixed well. You’ll have to scrape down the sides.
- Pour over pancakes and enjoy!
Dates are nature’s candy – don’t you think?
Whole wheat pancakes with 1/2 a banana, Sweet Syrup Alternative, and cashews on top.
And… I’m off!
Lately the pancake topper which I have been digging is Greek yogurt mixed with strawberry fruit preserves and then fresh strawberries! It tastes so indulgent, almost like a strawberry cheesecake!
