Isn’t this exciting? Another option for those of us seeking to avoid refined sugars and artificial sweeteners ( MyYearWithout, are you listening?)!
Equinox Organic Maple Flakes are a natural sweetener, preservative-free and with three times fewer calories than an equal quantity of refined sugar.
Made in Canada, these flakes, advertised as “delicious and crunchy” must be incredibly popular, because they are sold out everywhere. They are normally carried at Amazon and igourmet, but are currently out of stock. So now I want them even more.
The flakes are available (and I use the term “available” loosely) in the original maple flavor or a cranberry maple flavor and are $5.99 for a 4-ounce package. Which apparently goes a long way, as you only need to use a very small amount.
So what do you do with organic maple flakes? You can use them in your oatmeal or other cereal, mix with plain yogurt, sprinkle over ice cream, top pancakes or waffles (skip the sticky maple syrup mess) or even shake onto your salmon.
Also cool – and also out of stock? The Maple Flakes Mill ($11.99) which allows you to grind your flakes to a fine or coarse consistency.
Can’t wait to get my hands on these. They sound like a sure winner.
