Thick and Sticky Maple Syrup

Keto Recipes > Condiments

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!

Yields 1 Cup Maple Syrup, 4 Servings Total

The Preparation


The Execution

1. In a microwave safe container, mix together 2 1/4 tsp. Coconut Oil, 1 Tbsp. Butter, and 1/4 tsp. Xanthan Gum.


2. Microwave the oils and butter together for 40-50 seconds, until melted and hot.


3. In a spice grinder, powder 1/4 Cup NOW Foods Erythritol. Add cinnamon into this mixture if you plan to use it.


4. Mix 3/4 Cup Filtered Water and 1/4 Cup Powdered Erythritol into the mixture.


5. Add 1/2 tsp. Vanilla Extract and 2 tsp. Maple Extract. Your maple extract may vary, so make sure you taste as you add.


6. Mix everything together well until combined.


7. Microwave the mixture for 40-60 seconds and stir. Let cool and serve!
