Why You Will Love This Recipe For Low Calorie Maple Cinnamon Butter

This recipe is my go to for a reason, and that is simply because it is super low in calories, it is super easy to make, and it also tastes super delicious!

Ingredients for low calorie maple cinnamon butter
  • I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter- Light

This is the biggest reason this recipe is so low in calories. I love I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter because the taste is great and their light version only has 35 calories in a serving (1 TBSP.)

Compare this to regular butter which contains 100 calories per tablespoon. That’s a lot of calories saved!

Make sure you get the Light version as it has less calories than the regular version.

It is usually right next to the regular king in the butter aisle.

  • Sugar Free Maple Syrup

I love sugar free maple syrup. I use it in a variety of different ways other than actual maple syrup.

It can be used to sweeten so many different dishes and desserts, and it only contains…wait for it…..5 calories per serving.

One serving of this syrup is 2 TBSP which means that in each serving of this maple cinnamon butter when made, 0.33 calories come from the syrup.

This is why I do not even count it in the total.

  • Cinnamon

Cinnamon is used in this butter to give it that cinnamon spiked delicious taste, which compliments the maple flavor so well.

It also gives the butter a great overall hue and you can see the little cinnamon specks on your bread when it melts.

How To Make It

I will start off by saying it is a lot easier if you have a stand mixer or a hand mixer for this recipe.

I have tried to mix it by hand many times, and it does work but it takes quite awhile.

Use a mixer if you can to whip it up super quick so you can eat it super quick.

The first step is to get your mixer ready and once its out and ready to go, add HALF of the tub of I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter Light to the mixing bowl.

Now all you have to do is add your sugar free maple syrup to the butter and your cinnamon.

Now it’s time to mix. Mix the butter, syrup, and cinnamon with a whisk attachment on medium speed for about 2-3 minutes.

At first, it will look like its separating and you may get worried, but you don’t need to worry.

Just keep mixing and mixing and eventually it will start to incorporate and come together.

If it is taking awhile to come together, you can turn your mixer up to high.

Once it comes together, I finish it off for about a minute on high speed just to make sure it is nicely mixed and all together, and also to whip some additional air in to it gets nice and fluffy.

Now it is done, all you have to do is transfer it to your bowl of choice.


Now, I will share some tips so that making this butter doesn’t give you any trouble.

  • Use a mixer if you can.

This recipe is able to be mixed by hand, and I have successfully done it, but it takes forever.

I also feel like it does not mix up as well as it does with a mixer.

This is just a tip of course. If you really do not have a mixer and have no plans on buying one, just know if you mix by hand it might take awhile for the butter, syrup, and cinnamon to combine.

If you do choose to mix by hand, I would recommend taking the butter out of the fridge for about a half an hour to let it come to room temperature a bit.

While the butter is pretty soft when it is cold, it will be a bit easier to mix if it is not cold.

  • Use a whisk attachment if using a stand mixer.

I recommend using a whisk attachment if you are using a stand mixer so that the butter will mix well and get more air added into it.

I tried a paddle attachment and I will say the whisk is better.

  • Don’t be afraid it it looks like it’s separating or “curdling”

When you first start mixing this butter it looks like the syrup is not mixing into the butter. Do not stop mixing. Keep going!

Eventually you will not see the syrup in the bowl anymore and it will become one with the butter and become smooth.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Does this need to be refrigerated?

Yes, you should refrigerate this butter when you’re done using it. This butter will not firm up like regular butter does. It is soft even when cold.

Can I add more maple syrup to make it super sweet?

You can, you will just need to account for the extra calories in the sugar free maple syrup. Although, at 5 calories per serving you really can’t do much harm here.

I personally have not made this recipe with anymore than 4 tablespoons of sugar free maple syrup.

Can I freeze this maple cinnamon butter?

I don’t recommend freezing it. I have never tried freezing it. The brand I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter also does not recommend freezing their product.
