Keto syrup

Pancakes and syrup are a match made in heaven. Nothing beats pancakes drizzled with pancake syrup, whether maple or vanilla flavored.

However, you may not always want to use store-bought syrup on your keto pancakes, especially if you’re very vigilant about what you eat.

The good news is this sweet homemade keto syrup recipe is the perfect topping for all your keto breakfast recipes. And the best part is, that syrup is not only  low carb and keto-friendly, but also gluten-free, and grain-free too!

Is maple syrup good on keto?

You cannot eat maple syrup in its traditional form on keto as regular store bought maple syrup contains about 14 grams of carbs and 14 grams of sugar per tablespoon. However, you can make your own homemade version of keto maple syrup. Simply use keto friendly ingredients and enjoy keto homemade maple syrup which typically has a little over 1 gram of carbs and no sugar in each serving.

This easy low carb pancake syrup gives you the option of enjoying your syrup on keto without the added carbs or sugars. Plus, with 5.3 calories and only 1.3g carbs per serving this yummy and simple sugar-free maple syrup is more than ideal.

Is homemade keto syrup better than store bought?

Yes! Homemade pancake syrups are definitely better than store bought sugar free syrups. When you make your own recipes at home, you’re able to control exactly what goes in them and you can guarantee that there are no hidden ingredients in the recipe.

Tips to make the best keto maple syrup recipe

  • Tip 1 – Use a powdered low carb sweetener for this recipe. So, powdered Erythritol, powdered Monk fruit, or a similar low carb sweetener. As long as it is powdered and keto-friendly, it is a great option as your syrup will be smooth. I also just came across the sugar free swerve brown sugar substitute and this sweetener can be used to make some thick and sticky keto syrup too! 
  • Tip 2 – always blend the syrup before serving. By blending the ingredients, you will have a nice, smooth syrup.
  • Tip 3 – if your syrup is more liquid, and you want to make it thicker, you may sprinkle more xanthan gum on top, but wait until the syrup has cooled. Once cooled, you’ll be able to tell if your syrup is truly too runny or thick enough as is.
