This is a really easy recipe I made for homemade sugar free Buttermilk Syrup for pancakes. Fair warning…. it is addictive.
It is especially addictive if you have not had anything sweet for a while. Two tablespoons are about 84 calories from my calculations.
1 cup buttermilk
2 cups xylitol (Xyla is my favorite)
1/2 stick of unsalted butter
1 teaspoon of baking soda
2 TBSP of real vanilla extract
1 tsp of blackstrap mollasses
Heat all of the ingredients up in a medium pot except for the vanilla…. add the baking soda last because it will foam up.
Bring the mixture to a boil. The molasses will make it brown in color. Stir it often.
And you should let it cook on a low heat for 7 minutes ( it will tend to bubble over if you have the fire
up too high)
You can serve this hot on pancakes (no butter needed…it already has butter in it..) or you can let it
cool down and serve it over hot pancakes..
This syrup is addictive…but best of all it is sugar free and has low calories . But, if you have cholesterol problems, you might want
to use less butter.
I save this mixture in glass jars with a top after it cools. Than I put it in the refrigerator, so that when we have pancakes again that week, I can just take the top off of it and either set it in hot water or microwave it like you would to melt butter.
This syrup can be served hot or cold.
