Ever find yourself making pancakes or waffles only to discover you are completely out of syrup? Don’t sweat it! Making your own homemade syrup is simple, economical, and a lot tastier than the store-bought variety! I’ve been in a Christmas-ey sort of mood and this cinnamon and almond syrup makes me want to pull out my old fuzzy sweaters and curl up in front of the fire with a cup of cocoa and a good book. It’s a really simple recipe that I whip up while I’m making pancakes or waffles and any leftovers store really well. Helpful Tip: Whenever I make homemade pancakes or waffles, I double or triple the recipe so I can freeze leftovers to pop in the toaster for quick breakfasts. Drizzled with this amazing syrup, you’ll be in the best holiday mood for months to come!
