If you have a sweet tooth and are missing maple syrup, there is good news - you can easily make your own keto-friendly maple syrup! I avoid artificial sweeteners so using existing products was not an option. The recipes I've found resulted in grainy texture and didn't taste like the real deal.
For this recipe I used Sukrin Syrup just like like in my Homemade Sugar-Free Honey - this time not Sukrin Clear one but Sukrin Gold. The result tastes perfect, has smooth syrupy texture and you'll only need two ingredients that you simply mix together!
Sukrin Syrups are made with prebiotic fibers called isomaltooligosaccharides (IMO). IMO are a healthier option to sugar and can be used in moderation. However, I wouldn't recommend them for those with severe blood sugar issues. You can read more in my review of Sukrin products.

Use just like maple syrup - in smoothies or drizzled over pancakes and waffles :-)
