Low Carb & Keto Friendly!
I have the best fans! We don’t get a lot of Keto friendly products in India. The market here is different and while it’s growing the range of products are more in keeping with Indian tastes and eating habits. So things like Keto bacon, beef jerky, maple syrup etc are a far away dream. I go back to the time I made when I did a series of Keto waffle recipes. I not only made almond flour waffles but coconut flour waffles and peanut butter waffles as well. It was at this point that most of my international viewers were talking about pouring sugar free and Keto friendly maple syrup over their waffles and enjoying them. It was at this point I had to let people know we didn’t get Keto friendly maple syrup in India. Enter HK friends, Robert and Nancy Boyer who contacted me and sent me not 1 but two bottles of sugar free, Keto friendly maple syrup all the way from the USA.
I cannot say thank you enough to Rober and Nancy, but THANK YOU! They sent this to me back in April 2018 and well I’ve been sitting on it since then and haven’t opened them. I guess it was time and that’s why I am here today. We’re going to be making some Keto pancakes with coconut flour so that I can finally crack open that bottle and use that Keto friendly maple syrup.
It’s not really Maple syrup
Food awareness is a real thing. Lots of people are in the dark about a lot of things and it’s not really their fault. It’s just the way it is. I better very quickly clear up the fact that this isn’t really maple syrup and nor is it a Keto maple syrup. It’s actually a MAPLE FLAVOURED syrup. This is because just like honey or sugar itself, maple syrup is just a kind of sugar. So they extract that flavour and use it. The one I have (Lakanto brand) is sweetened with monkfruit and I have to say it tastes pretty damn good!
If you don’t have access to sugar free, maple flavoured syrup like I now do (thanks to Robert and Nancy) then you can just top your pancakes with some butter. You can also make your own peanut butter syrup by using all natural peanut butter, some sweetener of choice and some water to thin it out. I’m sure there are plenty of things you can do.
