My husband is diabetic too, and we're all trying to cut back on the sugar anyway. I'm always surprised at how many people don't realize that honey IS sugar. I have made a Maple flavoured 'sauce" using splenda brown sugar Blend in some water, bring to a boil and thicken slighlty with cornstarch, then add a few tablespoons of margarine, a pinch of salt, and Mapline flavouring. My personal preference is sugar free jams on my pancakes, or even a little Splenda mixed with cinnamon or pumpkin or apple pie spice mixes. I never was a big syrup fan.
