I keep seeing recipes for paleo pancakes floating around the blogosphere but don't know what to top them with. What do you top yours with? Any ideas for a maple syrup substitute (using maple extract, perhaps?)
Maple syrup and honey are natural - so unless you are looking for low sugar, I don't see a huge problem using either.
But, how about making a simple berry sauce? Just simmer down some berries in a bit of water, add some maple syrup or honey maybe. Maybe a little squirt of lemon. I make berry sauces and my kids just use it like jam. Pancakes would probably go well with it.
Unfortunately this is just one of those things that I no longer eat. Avoiding grains and sugar and eating pancakes are just diametrically opposed...
A Paleo friend of mine makes egg "crepes" using beaten eggs and almond meal. They are really nothing like pancakes, but are a good "vehicle" for wrapping or supporting food. I don't think I'd eat a stack of them though.
I make my own fruit syrups. My favorite is blueberry/orange. I just put some blueberries in a saucepan with some freshly squeezed orange juice and simmer until fruit is cooked. If I want a bit more sweetness I will add a few dates. It is amazing how sweet just a couple of dates will make it. That will satisfy your sweet tooth without going over the top.
