Low Carbohydrate Recipe
A maple syrup that is quite simple to whip up using just maple extract, water, sweetener, Splenda and guar gum, a thickening agent.
1 tablespoon maple extract
2 cups water
24 packets sweetener (such as Sweet 'n Low)
24 packets Splenda
1/2 teaspoon guar gum (thickening agent, found in health food stores)
Heat water with sweeteners and extract until boiling.
Remove from heat and stir in guar gum to thicken. Cool and store in refrigerator.
Guar gum clumps easily. Stir in 1/8-teaspoon at a time and whisk very well after each addition to avoid clumping.
