I tried using brown rice syrup for my waffles but there's just too much sugar content. I thought I could just use 1 tbl, but it's not enough. Is there a healthier alternative?

You could try using something else on your waffles.. like natural peanut butter & a sliced banana, or blend up some fruits (blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, a mix of whatever)<br><br>
I dunno any alternatives... I use 100% maple syrup on my pancakes & waffles, and I don't have 'em often enough to where I've been concerned about the sugar content.

Try cooking down some berries with lemon juice and maybe a tiny bit of sugar. When berries are in season, I make a bunch and it's great on pancakes, waffles, toast, whatever.

I adore maple syrup myself, but that's not exactly low in sugar either. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":(">

I've cooked up berry sauces for my pancakes and waffles before and it's pretty good. I don't really have an exact recipe though.

Apple sauce or apple butter? Fruit preserves?<br><br><br><br>
I like cooking up apple slices in a little bit of margarine, and sprinkling them with cinnamon, and adding a little bit of brown sugar or maple syrup and having that on waffles.

What about peanut butter? You can thin it out with water so it's more easily spreadable. Or, thin it out with a light fruit juice (I used the water from canned peaches as a kid), though that has a lot of sugar.

The first and the third of those are sweetened with Splenda... which killed a whole mess of beagles in their "safety testing" or whatever. *shudder*

I like the idea of a fruit syrup/sauce. You can also find some apple butters without much sugar in them. My mom used to make a yeast pancake and we'd always have them with apple butter. They were really good.<br><br><br><br>
(Note: though Smucker's makes a good apple butter, it has high fructose corn syrup in it, which I try to avoid. Mrs. Miller's makes a very good sugar-free apple butter without high fructose corn syrup. Oddly, I found it on Ebay... <a href="http://cgi.ebay.com/Mrs-Millers-Amish-Homemade-Diabetic-Apple-Butter_W0QQitemZ4450253623QQcmdZViewItem" target="_blank">http://cgi.ebay.com/Mrs-Millers-Amis...QQcmdZViewItem</a> )

I didn't look at the ingredients, sorry.

How about vegan whipped topping, fresh fruit and nuts?! Yummy! Strawberries, blackberries and walnuts are so good with the whipped topping.

Consider birch syrup as an alternative if you like. It has 40% less calories than sugar and much of it's sweetening properties come from Xylitol rather than normal sugars.

You can also try agave nectar. It's lower on the glycemic index and considered safe for those with diabetes and sugar sensitivity. It has a very honey like flavor but it's a bit less thick and better in my opinion.
