Sugar-Free Syrup


Since I am gluten free, your recipe for low carb crepes piqued my interest. However, I do not know what sugar free syrup would be or where to buy it? can you make it at home.



Hi Denise,

You can buy Agave syrup through or buy sugar-free syrup in grocery stores on the syrup/pancake mix aisle. You can use splenda in place of sugar to make your own syrup (Boil 1 cup water and 2 cups splenda for 5-10 minutes. Flavor with 1 teaspoon maple flavoring.) You can also make my favorite fruit syrup with no added sugar.

Desi's Date Sauce

Cover 7 pitted, whole dates with 1 cup water. Bring to a boil. Simmer for 5 minutes. Pour water and dates into blender container. Add 1 cup berries (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, etc.). Blend until smooth. The dates will thicken and sweeten the sauce naturally. Serve over pancakes, waffles, or ice cream!

Happy Cook'n,

Desiri Wightman, R.D.
