  • Try different Amaretto flavors to find the one you like best.

  • Replace the maple syrup with agave syrup. Benefit: Agave syrup is a lower-glycemic alternative that can provide a healthier option for those with diabetes or other blood sugar issues.
  • Replace the Amaretto with almond extract. Benefit: Almond extract has a similar flavor profile to Amaretto, but is more cost-effective and easier to find in most grocery stores.
