Unfortunately, I'm over 100 miles from a Trader Joe's. I wonder if I could find something similar at Safeway or Albertsons? Real maple syrup is great stuff but still high-calorie. Using less is definitely a plan; I did that the other day and chose to have a little more egg and only 1 waffle with half the syrup. It satisfied my "maple tooth" (heheh) so maybe that is just what I need to do.
Note: I tried to thicken up the sugar free stuff with some cornstarch last night. What I got was a gelantinous mass of cloudy, kinda maple-y tasting goo. It was not a successful experiment!
Thanks for the suggestions, everyone!
