Peach and Sour Cream Pancakes with Homemade Maple Syrup

For the last 15 weeks, Justin and I have been on an extremely low-carb diet {for many personal and health related reasons}.  We completely cut out bread and pasta and seriously lessened our sugar intake.  The first few weeks were a bit tough, but after awhile, it became really easy.  I don’t even miss bread and pasta the way I was so sure I would.  I think what makes it ‘easier’ is our “treat meals.”

Every weekend, Justin and I partake in what I so lovingly call our “treat” meal {instead of “cheat” meal}.  A few weeks back, we decided to use our treat meal for a breakfast recipe I’ve had tagged in my favorite cookbook for months now.  I’ve never less than absolutely loved anything I made from Deb Perelman’s “Smitten Kitchen Cookbook” and these peach pancakes did not disappoint!  They are fluffy and yet somehow creamy at the same time and who would have thought to use a peach of all fruits, in a pancake?!

Now you’d think that after planning for such delicious pancakes for our treat meal, we’d have remembered to buy some maple syrup.  But alas, we did not.  I started to reach for some honey when Justin decided to try and make his own syrup.  I was skeptical at first, but oh.my.golly.  I don’t think I will every buy store bought syrup again!  And we’ve actually made this syrup twice now, once with the maple extract and once without.  I loved it both ways as I’d never had vanilla syrup on pancakes before and it was SO good.
