Homemade Keto Maple Syrup

One morning, my husband and I were enjoying keto waffles drizzled lightly with Lakanto Maple 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?

Your New Favorite KETO Maple Syrup

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.

More Than A Keto Pancake Syrup!

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!

  3. Do you know how long this last in the refrigerator? Also what is a serving size?

  4. 5 stars with reduction with the sweetener I had on hand
    Forgot to mention I used only 1/2 cup Swerve, otherwise this would have been too sweet for us.

  5. I just made this as a surprise for my husbands birthday. We’re three weeks into keto, but he’s missing his whole wheat pancakes.
    This recipe should cover the real Maple syrup he’s been used to as an occasional breakfast.
    I read recipes thru, before I start cooking, but for other’s I suggest you list the xanthan gum in the list of ingredients.
    It’s frustrating to have to did out an ingredient when one is in the middle of food prep.
    My first time here, this recipe is a winner.

      Yes, i totally agree with you. It takes awhile to fully stock your kitchen for Grain-Free baking 🙂 Xantham gum is a pretty common one. Here, I’m using it to thicken the syrup and so it doesn’t separate as much when it’s stored 🙂
