Gluten-Free Pancake Toppings
Take your gluten-free pancakes up a notch with these awesome toppings made from real ingredients. They are way better and healthier than store-bought syrups.
Blueberry Syrup Ingredients

  • ½ cup honey or sugar
  • 1 cup of water 
  • 2 T water in a separate cup
  • 1 T tapioca starch 
Instructions
  1. Combine the starch with 2 tablespoons of water in a small bowl and set aside.
  2. Add the cup of water and blueberries to a medium saucepan with the sugar or honey.
  3. Bring the mixture to the boil, stirring occasionally.
  4. Reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes. The blueberries will start to burst open.

For a strawberry version of the above, use two cups of diced strawberries instead of the blueberries.
