Total time
Serves: 12
  1. Place the butter in a saucepan over high heat. Using Swerve: Before you begin, make sure you have everything ready to go - the almond milk and the butter next to the pan, ready to put in. Work fast or the sweetener will burn. Heat butter on high heat in a heavy-bottomed 2-quart (2 L) or 3-quart (3 L) saucepan. As soon as it comes to a boil, watch for specks of brown (this is brown butter....so good on veggies!). Immediately add the Swerve and the almond milk to the pan. Whisk until sauce is smooth. Add the extract/oil and salt. Let cool in the pan for a couple minutes, and then pour into a glass mason jar and let sit to cool to room temperature. Store in the refrigerator up to 2 weeks.

“Hi Maria Emmerich! I just want to give you a hug today!

For the last few weeks I have been following your maintenance meal plan, more or less, so that I could convince myself that this would work long term as I have always lost weight fairly easily, but not been very good at maintenance.  And I am still losing weight on maintenance.  Slowly, of course, but steady.

I have remained grain free, but have enjoyed nuts, full fat cream, homemade yogurt from raw full fat milk, and occasionally whey protein over the last few weeks without any negative effects. I really think all the supplements you recommended are helping me to heal my gut because in the past I would have had problems with the whey and yogurt.

And I am sleeping so much better.  Even when I wake up in the middle of the night, usually because of the cats or people in the neighborhood  being loud, I fall back asleep easily.  I have found that I need to be more active during the day to improve my sleep so I know walk 1-2 miles every day during my work breaks (I never used to take breaks), follow a stretching/yoga routine most days and this is all on top of resistance training 2-4 times a week.  Next week I will add interval cardio a few times a week as well to see how I do with that.

I have so much energy and I feel amazing.  And now that I am sleeping much better on a regular basis I am ready to tackle this weight. I do have some before pictures and they weren’t as bad as I thought they would be.  Can’t wait for the in progress and after pictures.

Thank you so much for your help!  I have been recommending your services to everyone when people ask what I am doing.  I hope that at least some of them will reach out to you.

I am pretty excited about my future.  Thank you so much!” Kelly

    This may sound a little weird, but I picture this poured over pancakes, or even added to the batter before baking. Pancakes, waffles, ice cream, smoothies…and batters of all sorts. YAY–I CAN HAVE “BANANAS” AGAIN!

  • Jen says:

    What brand of banana oil or extract do you recommend? I’ve noticed some smell more than taste. TIA

  • Kristy says:

    Hi Maria! Do you have a recipe for banana bread?! My Dad LOVES it but I don’t know if there is a healthified version?! Thank you for all you do it is soooo appreciated!

  • Mary says:

    Do you have a suggestion for an alternative to Swerve in this and many of your other keto recipes? My body really reacts to Swerve. I’m okay with limited amounts of erythritol and do fine with stevia and lo han. So far I’ve been using mainly stevia in your recipes and sometimes adding a bit of erythritol; but the caramels and marshmallows and various other recipes do not turn out.

  • Looks yummy! Can I brown ghee?

  • Belinda says:

    Good morning Maria ! I am on the second week of your 30 day plan and I am still retaining water. My hands are tight when I make a fist and my ankles get puffy by the evening. Any advice on how to get rid of this fluid…I am drinking water but not the green tea(caffine). I read in your book where you recommend all protein for a while, if so how do I do that bc I couldn’t find any instructions on that. Thanks so much for all you provide in your packages and websites! 🙂 or your thoughts on an egg fast…I have my on hens and lots of beautiful eggs! ( I can’t do any dairy). 🙂

  • Wendy says:

    Why have I waited so long to make this??? Wow, this is good!

  • michele says:

    I don’t think I cooked the butter enough……or I put it into the fridge too soon. Mine separated…any suggestions? The flavor is great!!

    • michele says:

      I think it was a combination of both……so I just reheated it and added some thickener. Thanks again….its fabulous!

    • Maria Emmerich says:

      Try blending it in the blender to re-emulsify.

  • Kathryn says:

    Oh! This sounds delicious!! I have rum extract in my pantry right now. Maria do you think this recipe would work with orange essential oil in place of the banana extract? Thank you so much for all you do for us! : )

  • Nicki Darden says:

    If I just want plain syrup, like the Keto Syrup pictured below the featured recipe. Do I just leave out the banana oil?
