Thick and Sticky Maple Syrup

Keto Recipes > Keto Condiment Recipes

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!
