This is a truly yeast-risen keto bread.  It's as close to the real thing as you're gonna get.  So yes, you will notice this recipe uses a little real maple syrup.  Keto purists may struggle with this one, but the sugar is needed so that the yeast has something to eat.  It gets eaten up, so you don't have to worry about added sugar in the recipe.Like all keto baked goods, make sure you let the bread cool completely before attempting to slice it.  If you slice it too early you may run into ...

For this recipe, I used hot sauce to add some spice, but if you want to turn up the heat, you can substitute the hot sauce for jalapeno peppers or scotch ...
