We usually top our pancakes with real maple syrup or homemade applesauce. Sometimes peanut butter and jelly. Or peanut butter with maple syrup. Or honey. Or if we sprinkle a few mini chocolate chips into the pancakes, we don’t really need syrup at all.
But last week when we had some fresh, local peaches in our kitchen, I made a quick and healthy peach syrup that is oh-my-goodness good.
You need exactly two ingredients to make this: peaches and sucanat. The two together cook to form a syrup. No water necessary. :)
Homemade Peach Syrup
3 fresh peaches (or 2 cups frozen)
2 Tablespoons sucanat
Slice peaches into a saucepan. Stir in sucanat and cook on medium heat, stirring occasionally until the peaches are tender and the ingredients have formed a syrup.
You can add a few shakes of cinnamon if you like.
