Dr Jockers Comments:
If you are looking for a great glaze for pie, pancake or cookie than this is the way to go. I would recommend using a nut that agrees the most with your body. As much as I love cashews, I don’t tolerate them well. I would use pecans or walnuts.
Pecans are rich in anti-oxidants and walnuts have the small chain omega-3 fatty acid ALA. Coconut oil provides more good fats that help reduce inflammation and improve fat burning. It is very important to have healthy fats and anti-oxidants in every meal in order to maintain a stable blood sugar.
Megan originally used maple syrup, but we decided to replace it with keto maple syrup which is a combination of monk fruit and erythritol. These are natural sweeteners that don’t impact our blood sugar levels. You could also try using stevia which is another great natural sweetener that dosn’t impact our blood sugar levels.
You can serve this anyway you like. It is great to add this to the quinoa, pumpkin, sweet potato, cinnamon or spinach pancakes or various cakes we have on the website. Let us know how it comes out in the comments box below! Enjoy!
