Homemade [Can-Life-Get-Any-Better?] Syrup

I am a big breakfast fan… but I am not an imitation maple syrup fan.  For the last couple of years, my family has used agave nectar on our pancakes, french toast, and oatmeal.  It is good… but not good enough due to its lack of maple flavor.  Having gone through a health revolution a few years back, I have been missing my syrups which I refuse to eat since they are packed with harmful ingredients and highly processed sugars.  In fact, they are more “fake” food than “real” food.  But those sad-syrup-free-days are gone.  History!  Welcome to Syrup Making 101.


Homemade [Can-Life-Get-Any-Better?] Syrup

1/2 cup Earth Balance or organic butter
1 cup milk (soy, almond, rice, or cow)
2 cup sucanat
2 tablespoon agave nectar
2 teaspoon baking soda


In a very large saucepan combine the Earth Balance or organic butter, milk, sucanat, and agave nectar.  Bring to a boil.  Remove from heat and add vanilla and baking soda.  Be prepared to stir as fast as you can because it is going to foam – a lot.  Pour over pancakes and enjoy.

Store in a fun Syrup Dispenser and enjoy syrup once again.  You deserve it.
