Maple Syrup Dex+

Maple syrup is an amazing thing; except that it has a lot of fructose in it. Use the darkest maple syrup you can find, and this syrup blend packs a great flavor. We find it delicious, and a bit less intensely sweet than 100% maple. It beats any "maple flavored pancake syrup" available at the grocery, no question. And it's Dex+, which means less fructose, with fiber.  :)

Maple Syrup Dex+
Yield: 1 quart


  • 3/4 c Benefiber or similar
  • 470 g dextrose
  • 298 g corn syrup (zero high fructose)
  • ½ c (120 g) water
  • 277 g Maple Syrup, dark


  1. In a 2 quart sauce pan, mix Benefiber into the dextrose.
  2. Add Karo and water, stirring to combine over low heat. Increase heat and bring to a rolling boil.
  3. Remove from heat, and stir in maple syrup until completely combined.
  4. Add water to make 4 cups/ 1 liter.
  5. Store refrigerated, in a microwavable container large with a mouth large enough for a spoon, to allow stirring. Warm before using on hot waffles. If crystals form, microwave and stir until they redissolve.
