DIY Keto Maple Syrup

Keto Maple Syrup (Tara)

DIY Keto Maple Syrup recipe provided by Tara Wright, Whole Body Living

One morning, my husband and I were enjoying keto waffles drizzled lightly with a sugar-free maple flavored syrup. My husband looked at me and said “You used to make homemade syrup, could you make the same thing in a Keto version?”

Well, why not?

It took me quite a bit of trial and error to get this keto maple syrup just right. This syrup won’t harden in the refrigerator, but it does still tend to separate and require a vigorous shake before use. Adding additional xanthan gum causes too much thickening for our tastes.

This Keto Maple Syrup is so much more than a pancake syrup. Try it on salmon to make a Keto Maple Glazed Salmon. It’s also great on pork chops, chicken breasts and kabobs! We’ve even recently been experimenting with making keto maple glazed bacon! Oh yeah!
