Maple Flavored Syrup

We use this basic syrup on pancakes, waffles, and to make granola.


1 cup water

2 cups granulated sugar (white or unrefined)

1 tablespoon molasses

1 tablespoon maple flavored extract


Bring the water, sugar, and molasses to a boil in a saucepan over medium-high heat.

Take off heat and stir in the maple extract.

Let cool until no longer hot.

Store in a sealed glass mason jar in refrigerator (needs refrigeration since it does not contain preservatives like store purchased varieties). Usually good for months in the refrigerator.
