Vegan Lemon Poppy Seed Sauce

go to site Lemon sauceMaple syrup I could have by the bucket load. It is a relatively healthy sweetener but it does have high fructose and glucose content, so I shouldn’t have much of it. But maple syrup is one of these things that is difficult to have a little of – and I can’t relate to people who have only a tablespoon of it on their pancakes. I used to have at least ¼ cup for a stack of pancakes, but now I can’t be doing that any more. Brown rice syrup is a yummy alternative, but it doesn’t cut it on it’s own on pancakes – not the right sweetness and not runny enough. I have therefore developed this lemon sauce for my pancakes. It is seriously yummy and I can have a tablespoon (or two) and that is enough (but you can of course have more). The other great thing about this sauce is the lemon flavour. I frequently have a lemon or syrup dilemma when it comes to what to have on my pancakes, but with this sauce you get both.
