Omg. OMG. Oh. Mygawd. Homemade Keto Pancake Syrup might be my greatest creation to date. Dear readers, you must understand…before Keto, I barely cooked. Beyond boxed Mac and cheese that is, and sticking a spoon in a half gallon carton of mint ice cream. I will not babble a moment longer. Here is the recipe.

Homemade Keto Pancake Syrup

1. Heat the following in the microwave for 30 seconds: 2 medium strawberries, 5 fat blueberries, 1 T Kerrygold butter, 1 T coconut milk, pinch of your favorite Keto sweetener, 2 drops of vanilla, dash of salt.

2. Blend that beautiful concoction in your *food processor. Done.

*If you don’t have a processor or blender, this in the Ninja I have and love because of the single serving cups perfect for recipes like this! 5 years old and no problems.

I recently started using pure Monk Fruit keto-safe sweetener. Very, very sweet so it takes just a tiny pinch. I also like this blend of stevia and erythritol which is granular and about as sweet as real sugar, so easy for following recipes closely.

The Keto Pancake

Now the pancake itself is from a Paleo Pancake Mix I bought at Costco. Note the crispy edges. Yep, it is cooked in butter. For my teenagers who are not full Keto, I combine the paleo pancake mix with regular mix. If you’re transitioning to Keto, nothing wrong with making small changes as you learn…anything to reduce carbs will help you get there.

What’s My Keto Story?

I stumbled upon Keto eating 2 years after having gastric bypass surgery when seeking a solution to several scary episodes or reactive hypoglycemia, a side effect of the surgery. I had NO IDEA that it could relieve depression, fatigue and brain fog as well. I’ve been at this keto thing about a year, and I do it absolutely imperfectly, but I am fascinated by the multiple health benefits. This blog chronicles what is working for me, which is plant-based, gluten-free, processed food free, low net carb, moderate protein, high healthy fat and fiber. In short, KETO (ketogenic). I bought one excellent Keto Book, which is wonderfully researched with lots of gorgeous pictures.

Kalamata Keto Salad Toppings

Pictured at top is a bed of greens: romaine hearts and spinach. Fresh from the garden tomatoes make this the perfect summertime salad. Feta, red onions, and the real kicker, Kalamata olives, give this the taste edge over plain Jane salads. A drizzle of olive oil and vinegar keep it Keto.
