  1. Hey thanks for the awesome recipe! Are you planning on creating a keto version of it? I’ve made it a few times without the sugar and hoisin sauce but I would much prefer it this way. Needing a keto-friendly version! Thanks!

  2. Love this one. I used monkfruit sweetener in place of sugar, no honey and replaced the soy sauce with coconut amines. Still sweet and sticky and more keto friendly so much that teenager son remarked better than takeaway. Thanks for an inspiring receipe.
