{Recipe}: Berry Sauce for Pancakes and More

by Marissa on February 11, 2016

berry sauce

 

Since I’ve cut back on sugar, including natural sweeteners, I no longer douse my gluten-free pancakes in maple syrup. It was kind of a bummer until I discovered this out-of-this-world berry sauce.

I adapted the recipe from I Quit Sugar and made it my own. I use this in chia pudding and in regular and overnight oats also. It’s versatile and so tasty!

Ingredients
  1. 2 cups frozen berries
  2. 1 Tbsp. (I use just a drizzle) of brown rice syrup
  3. 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
  4. 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
  5. juice of 1/2 a lemon
Instructions
  1. Stir all ingredients into a sauce pan and bring to a boil, then lower the heat to a simmer for five minutes.
  2. Store in a glass jar in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks (but it won't last that long)!

Beans seriously don’t stand a chance. When I bring up beans during my coaching sessions with clients, I get silence and blank stares. Either they’re too boring, they don’t digest well or clients simply don’t know how to prepare beans. Now with the latest Paleo craze, beans are suddenly on the “do not eat” lists of […]
