When I got the Nature’s Hollow Sugar Free Maple Syrup in my last Keto Krate delivery, I wasn’t real sure how I would use it. I’ve never been big on syrup.
I usually eat things like pancakes and waffles with butter only (even before going low carb). Like the Low Carb Blueberry Crepes I make all the time – I fry those in butter and eat them plain.
But yesterday I finally tried the syrup, and WOW! It’s surprisingly GOOD.
I used it on these…
Beautiful, Thick, Fluffy, Delicious Low Carb Blueberry Pancakes
This is one of the reviews I promised you, btw…
I recently did a poll and asked what you would most like for me to review.
A “low carb pancake & waffle mix” TOPPED that list.
Netrition accepted our list and sent me this box of low carb foods to review.
It’s taken me 10 days to get to this second low carb food review, because that first product just about ruined me (lol). BLECH! 😛
Keto Krate and Netrition are both companies I’m affiliated with. They send me low carb products to test and in exchange I have to try them, photograph them & write about them. I earn commission on sales & referrals when you use my links. Some things I like, some things I don’t – and I’m always VERY open with you about that.
I don’t even like to cook at all (lol) so… you’re welcome. 🙂 I’m also afraid some “products” will stall my weight loss, so I’m being a true guinea pig for you here!
I do enjoy being able to help you make smart product choices though, and NOT waste money on the icky products – because I’ve been through that A LOT myself.
New Hope Mills – New HOPE For Low Carb Pancakes?!
There were several low carb pancake/waffle mixes to choose from…
I chose New Hope Mills Low Carb Pancake & Waffle Mix for the quality of ingredients: no sugar alcohols, no artificial flavors, and great reviews.
I was skeptical, but committed – everyone wanted to know if it was any good!
This product is a WINNER. They tasted like real pancakes! 🙂
I made them by the directions, adding: 2 eggs, 1 tbsp melted butter & 1/3 cup cold water. I also added 1/4 cup (35 grams) of hand-picked blueberries. Oh – I also added a dash of cinnamon. It’s a super quick & easy recipe using the mix.
They came out THICK, fluffy, buttery crisp around the edges, and delicious!
Even with the blueberries added, it came out to only 4.5 net carbs per serving.
I got FIVE large pancakes out of the batch, using even 1/4 cup scoops per pancake, for a total of 9 net carbs – which made two meals for me.
I cooked them in a non-stick skillet over medium heat (“5” on my stove) and first melted a whole TBSP of real butter in the skillet.
^ This was the last two cooking, while I was eating the first three (lol).
The second batch never looks as pretty, but I just wanted to show you they cook just like traditional pancakes. Fluffy, golden brown & perfect!
Like I said, one batch made 5 large fluffy thick pancakes.
I ate 3 for breakfast and put the rest in the refrigerator. I took them out later and popped those last two pancakes in the toaster… PERFECTION. They were just as good toasted! So YES: I’m going to make & freeze a bunch. 🙂

I mentioned that I don’t normally use syrup, but I’m a HUGE fan of Nature’s Hollow products and their sugar free syrup was GREAT on these low carb pancakes. 🙂
I didn’t use much, but it was great. No icky aftertaste, not too thick and not too thin, perfect amount of sweetness, and a great combo with the buttery pancakes!

I used a full TBSP of real butter in the skillet for each batch of pancakes (3 in the first round, 2 in the last), plus I had butter & sugar free syrup ON the pancakes.
They were amazing. 🙂
I’m seriously impressed with the mix, especially for the quality of ingredients. And the fact that it has NO sugar alcohols. It’s also Kosher and Non-GMO.
It does have monk fruit and says there’s Stevia in it, but I didn’t taste anything “sweet” about the mix at all. It just had a very nice flavor and texture.
I ate them twice today, and experienced no bloating and no tummy issues.
You shouldn’t have ANY trouble at all with this mix. It’s practically impossible to screw up (I got perfect pancakes the first try!) and won’t stall your weight loss or upset your stomach. It’s a GREAT product, with quality ingredients.
This one definitely gets my picky seal of approval. 🙂
Have you ever tried New Hope Mills Low Carb Pancake & Waffle Mix?
Do you want to or plan to?
I would love to hear your thoughts!
I do love my Low Carb Crepes but they ARE “eggy” – and these are REAL pancakes. I truly couldn’t tell the difference between these and traditional “carb coma” pancakes!
It’ll be nice to make these up and have them on hand for a quick snack or a full meal.
My five thick, fluffy pancakes came to 9 net carbs total – so that makes each pancake (or waffle) less than 2 net carbs each. I love that I can pop them in the toaster to reheat for a super fast (delicious) low carb meal.
This is one of the TOP products I’ve tried from Netrition that will become a staple in my low carb lifestyle for sure. 🙂
p.s. The next Keto Krate boxes are shipping right now, so if you’re already signed up (or if you sign up now) you’ll be getting a box full of low carb FUN this week.:)
I’m excited to see what we get this time!
