Maple sugar flakes are a tasty protein bar recipe addition that add a nice maple flavored sweetness.
They work well with most ingredients, but combine particularly well with the following:
- Pecans & walnuts
- Maple pecan butter
- Maple flavor
- Caramel flavor
- Chocolate chips
What are They?
Nothing more than thin shavings of pure organic dried maple syrup. A natural sugar/sweetener bursting with flavor.
How are They Made?
Pure maple syrup is dehydrated, then ground and sifted into small flakes.
What do They Taste Like?
Just like maple syrup, both in terms of flavor and sweetness.
What’s Their Texture?
Small hard crunchy chunks at first, but over time they will absorb the wet ingredients and become soft.
Any Health Benefits?
They are a sweetener, so don’t expect any fantastic health benefits.
With that being said, unlike most sweeteners maple sugar flakes actually do have some nutritional value. They contain quite a few trace minerals including manganese, riboflavin, zinc, magnesium, calcium, and potassium.
Fun Fact: Quebec, Canada produces almost 70% of the worlds maple syrup!
