Strawberry Pancake Topping

Just in time for your long weekend, I'm sharing a recipe for yummy pancake topping!  This came about when I was trying to think of something that Miss A could eat atop her pancakes.  I don't want her to have the super-fake waffle syrup (which isn't actually syrup, but just different forms of highly processed sugars).  I know I'm not the inventor of strawberry pancake topping, but I read several recipes and they all had white sugar, so I did my own version.  This recipe is really "to taste" so I can't give exact measurements...just use what you have and keep tasting throughout!

Strawberry Pancake Topping

What you need:
Fresh or Frozen Strawberries
1/2-1 tsp. Honey
1/4-1/2 tsp. Vanilla extract

If frozen, defrost strawberries, either on the stovetop or in the microwave.  Cut into small pieces and place in a saucepan over low to medium heat.  Heat until bubbling and smash berries with a potato masher (a slotted spoon works too!)  Remove from heat and stir in honey to taste. (The amount depends on how sweet your strawberries are and how many you used.  I used about 1 cup of berries and 1/2 tsp. honey for 2 of us and have leftovers.)  Add 1/4-1/2 tsp. of vanilla and stir.  Serve over hot, buttered pancakes.  Try not to eat it all before your kids come to the table for breakfast!  : )

Miss A really enjoyed this and ate nearly a whole pancake which is quite an accomplishment for my dainty little gal!  This is going to be a go-to "recipe" for us from now on!  I'm going to try it with some of the other fruits I have in my freezer as well...blueberries, peaches, etc.

I'm linking up again this week!
