Rich Buttered Sugar Free Maple Syrup




*I recommend this xylitol syrup because of the way you may boil it and have it delay the crisping process for a full day for special occasions. If you really need to make a rich buttered syrup with gentle sweet just omit the boiling and use 1/4 cup of gentle sweet instead of 1/2 cup xylitol and then you will need more xanthan gum too.

*Alternative sweetener note from a reader on using Swerve. Swerve is a THM and Keto approved sweetener and this are the results that Jenn obtained when using it:

"I made this today using Swerve and it did harden up quickly, but thinned out nicely when re-heated. Fantastic syrup – my kids loved it. I added a pinch of cinnamon. I entered the ingredients in Carb Manager (using Swerve!) and the macros came out to 0 net carbs, 1 g fat, 21 calories, 0 protein. This is a keeper!"

Update: I've found that adding the 1 tsp blackstrap molasses to this xylitol syrup is a big help in keeping it from crystalizing for some reason. Technically this ingredient is on plan but be careful as it does add 5 gms of carbs to this syrup which will normally serve 6.
