If you are going to eat pancakes (waffles, french toast, etc....) then please use whole ingredients and make them yourself. But beyond that, try your best to use the very best toppings. Real cream, real maple syrup, and berries.
My favorite topping - berry syrup. I make mine without any sugar, and as you can guess, it is so simple to make.
Here's what you do:
Step 1. Put a few cups of berries into a saucepan
Step 2. Heat and mash the berries together. Cook it on low until it's as thick as you want it. Cook longer for thicker syrup.
Step 3. Eat.
It's really that simple and you do NOT need any sweeteners. Not sugar, Not honey, Not splenda or whatever fake sugar people are using these days. And there's no stress about how long to cook them. You can even mix them together raw, mash a bit, and let their natural juices combine. I do that all the time.
If berries aren't sweet enough for you, then add a few dashes of cinnamon or a few sprigs of mint. Your taste buds will register sweet even though you haven't added any sugars.
