Helpful hints

  • Use 100% pure maple syrup for best flavor. Honey or non-nutritive sweetener such as stevia, sweet leaf sweet drops or Splenda may be used instead of maple syrup or omit sweetener.  Roasting brings out the natural sweetness and the cinnamon adds extra flavor.
  • Experiment with additional spices such as nutmeg, clove or cardamom.
  • Serve as a breakfast dish with 1/2 cup vanilla Greek yogurt and 1/2 cup Apple Cinnamon Maple Granola, another recipe from Brittany.
