low carb powdered sweetener of your choice (e.g., erythritol or monk fruit)
brown-colored maple extract
Whisk water, sweetener, and maple extract in a small sauce pot.
Heat until mixture is gently boiling, stirring frequently.
Continue boiling another 5 minutes or until sweetener dissolves.
If you prefer a thicker texture, add xanthan gum in increments of ¼ teaspoon at a time sprinkled evenly over the entire mixture.
If your mixture is clumpy, puree your mixture while it is warm to break down clumps. Use caution to prevent burns.
- 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.
Each serving is about 2 tablespoons.
