Best Sugar Free Syrup

Mrs. Butterworth's Sugar Free Maple Syrup is my new favorite food. Thick, rich and flavorful, it does not leave an aftertaste and is great on pancakes and waffles, but is even more useful as a sweet syrup on foods, or for use in recipes.

Mrs. Butterworth's Sugar Free Review

Growing up with a dad who was a Type 1 diabetic, I've tried just about all the sugar free products on the market since the 1960s. Mrs. Butterworth's Sugar Free Maple Syrup ranks as one of the best I've ever tried. The syrup is rich and flavorful, with just the right amount of maple flavoring. The color is a nice medium brown and the consistency is thick, unlike many of the other sugar free syrup brands.

My five kids are all happy to use it on their pancakes and waffles in the morning and don't complain about the taste. While real maple syrup can't really be beat, Mrs. Butterworth's sugar free wins hands down against other sugar free brands and stands up well to other imitation maple syrups.

When I looked Mrs. Butterworth's up on Amazon and other search sites, I found that most other people also love this syrup and use it, like we do, for more than just pancakes.

Using Mrs. Butterworth's Sugar Free Syrup

My favorite use of Mrs. Butterworth's Sugar Free Syrup is actually as a substitute for other liquid sweeteners such as Honey. I use it for breakfast as a sweet topping for my plain yogurt, fruit and granola. By adding Mrs. Butterworth's, I can avoid added sugars in sweeter yogurts but still get a great taste.

  • Sweetener for Drinks:You can use Mrs. Butterworth's as a sweetener for tea, coffee or other drinks.
  • Honey Substitute: Use instead of honey on cornbread, biscuits, toast or muffins.
  • Peanut Butter and Honey Sandwiches: Substitute Mrs. Butterworth's syrup for jelly in a sandwich and you can have a delicious sugar free lunch. Even better if you substitute PB peanut butter (dried peanut butter powder with fat removed--tastes terrific) for regular peanut butter.
  • Fruit Dip: Make a sugar free dip for fruit by adding the syrup to plain yogurt or no fat cream cheese. Just keep on adding the syrup until it tastes sweet enough. Add a 1/2 tea. vanilla and cinnamon too.
  • Baked Apples: Core and cut up 6 apples and put in a crock-pot (green apples are best). Add 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, 1 teaspoon of vanilla, and 1 cup Mrs. Butterworth's. Bake on high for 3 hours or until soft (you can also cook in microwave or oven).
  • Baked Maple Squash (My favorite is Butternut!): Cut squash in half and scoop out seeds. Or you can cut and cube it. Spray squash with butter spray, drizzle with Mrs. Butterworth's, and sprinkle with garlic salt and pepper and then bake at 350 degrees until soft.
  • Recipes: Lately, I've been adding Mrs. Butterworth's Syrup instead of honey in other recipes too. I've found it works really well to make a Sugar Free Granola. I've also used it instead of sugar in recipes like banana bread or pumpkin muffins.

Where to Buy Mrs. Butterworth's Sugar Free Syrup

I buy Mrs. Butterworth's at my local grocery store for about $2.78 a bottle (24 ounces). If you can't find it there, you can order it through Walmart (if your local Walmart doesn't carry it) for $2.98. You can also order it in bulk from Amazon, so I'm including the link in case you don't have a local source. On Amazon, some people say they prefer Joseph's All Natural Maple Sugar Free Syrup, but at over $9.00 a 12 once bottle, that is a bit pricey for me. I may check to see if Joseph's is carried by my local store.

Nutrition Mrs. Butterworth's Syrup

At only 20 calories per 1/4 cup or 60ml, Mrs. Butterworth's is a great low calorie food. Regular Mrs. Butterworth's syrup has 220 calories per quarter cup, and the Lite version has around 110. Sugar Free Mrs. Butterworth's does have 8 g Sugar alcohol per serving, and 8 g carbohydrates, which people on low carb diets may need to take into account.

Healthy Yogurt, Fruit, Granola Breakfast

Below is the recipe for my very favorite breakfast. I usually try to buy a Greek Yogurt which is about 110 calories, under 9 grams of sugar and at least 22 grams of protein per one cup serving. Served with strawberries, Mrs. Butterworth's Sugar Free Syrup and 1/2 cup of my homemade sugar free granola, the breakfast is around 300 calories with over 25 grams of protein, which keeps me very full! If I'm hungrier, I add another 1/2 cup of granola for 400 calories.

I had no idea and will get it and try it out. I like maple taste more that sugary by far so it should be an easy transition. Peanut butter and maple sounds yummy.
