    Tips

    • Be sure to use powdered rather than granulated sugar, otherwise your syrup will taste gritty.
    • If you find the taste of your powdered sweetener to be too overpowering, add a few drops of a liquid sweetener other than the powdered sweetener you are using. This will prevent only one flavor dominating the syrup.
    • If you only have granulated sugar, you can blend in into a finer texture using a very dry blender.
    • Some maple extracts are clear in color; it is fine to use them but your syrup will not have the classic golden brown color of traditional syrup.
    • Maple extract can vary in intensity of flavor, so you can add more if you want a stronger maple flavor. It is best to add your maple extract in ½ tablespoon increments to avoid making it too strong for your liking.
    • Xanthan gum will clump if added all at once, which is why it is best to add it in ¼ teaspoon increments and carefully sprinkled over the entire mixture.

    Whether you want to go with a trusted store brand or try your hand at a homemade recipe, breakfast will taste sweeter with these keto syrups.
