Could I use maple syrup as a sub for golden syrup?

Looking in my cupboards and I have maple, not golden , or the consistency is different so would change the recipe dramatically !

Cheers in advance

They are not the same, in taste or consistency. Brown sugar or off to the store or do another day, if it was me.

It depends on the quantity. One time when I was making coconut rough I used maple syrup instead of golden syrup, and it was fine, but it was only one Tbspn in the base. It would be a different story if it was a large amount.

It will be fine to use I have made hokey pokey biscuits with the maple syrup as I had no golden syrup, it was a success I am still using it, as I am cleaning out the pantry of old stock!

Treacle would be a better substitute:
