Oh the joys of maple syrup! Through the years, I’ve experimented and used many syrups that are low carb. Mrs. Butterworths Sugar Free Maple Syrup has always been a pleasure of mine to use, though I do use it rarely. It’s got aspartame so I know others wouldn’t want to use it.
Torani also does some awesome syrups, but I have decided that Torani is kind of expensive for what it is. I realize many people have a budget and many people like to make their own foods to their own tastes. So, I ventured out to make a great maple syrup that will supplement any of the pancakes or sweets that require it.
I just want to point out that the Maple Extract I was using (after reading on it) seems to be weaker than others. So, if you are using a concentrated maple extract, make sure you measure in 1/2 tsp. increments to make sure you are getting the taste you want!
