Two tablespoons of Maple Syrup has 104 calories, the same amount of this is only 37 calories!
I saw Nigella Lawson make something similar on one of her shows, in perfect Nigella fashion she made a sinful version of this syrup. I decided to make a skinny version. Maple syrup already has fewer calories than sugar, blueberries are also relatively low in sugar for a fruit, so making this a skinny recipe was easy and fun.
I cut down the maple syrup so instead of a heavy syrup flavor you have a heavy blueberry flavor. This reminds me of going to IHOP as a kid and trying all the syrups they had. I topped my Skinny French Toast with this delicious concoction but it would be equally delicious on pancakes, waffles and even ice cream!
Makes about 1 cup-
- 1 cup Fresh or Frozen Blueberries
- 1/4 cup Maple Syrup- Get REAL Maple Syrup
So easy! In a medium sauce pan combine the blueberries and Maple syrup, heat on medium-high until the blueberries boil, pop and ooze, stir and keep an eye on the syrup (if you are making pancakes or french toast make at the same time) once most of the blueberries are dissolved move the syrup to a jar or maple pitcher to cool slightly. If you don’t want it chunky, with a fork stir and whip a little until all the blueberries dissolve.
If there is any left put in a jar or Tupperware container and place in the fridge, will last a week. I suppose you could toss in the freezer and take out next week and so on, if someone tries that let me know how it works. I love it so much I keep it ready in the fridge for my ice cream and pancake cravings 🙂
