Just because you're following the ketogenic diet doesn't mean that you can't indulge in some delicious treats. (Case in point: these strawberry keto fat bombs.) And that includes starting your day with a big stack of pancakes.
But while you may have discovered some clever swaps to make your flapjacks just as fluffy and filling as the traditional kind (hello, flaxseeds), when it comes to toppings, the options for keto dieters are kind of limited. (Almond butter, again?) Until now, that is.
Waffle and pancake mix makers Birch Benders are releasing a paleo- and keto-friendly collection of syrups that have been sweetened with monk fruit.
Available in three flavors—Classic Maple, Maple Bourbon and Mind Body Maple—each syrup has only 0-15 calories, 0g sugar, and 1g of net carbs per serving.
What's in the Mind Body Maple variety, you ask? The sweet topping contains grass-fed collagen and MCT oil—a keto diet staple.
We haven't had the opportunity to sample the low-carb syrups yet, but we're pretty pumped about it. In fact, we haven't been this excited since we came across Crepini—magical, low-carb wraps for tacos, burritos, sandwiches and more.
Whipping up brunch for your group of friends (you know, the paleo dieter, the keto dieter and the vegan) has never been easier. You can bet that we'll be first in line when these new syrups hit shelves on June 12 at birchbenders.com.
