Keto Creme Brûlée
The crispy texture of the torched monk fruit might just be the best part of this guilt-free brûlée. The caramelized pudding-like base does come in a very close second, though.
Servings: 4 ramekins
- 6 egg yolks
- 2 cups heavy cream Paleo option: 1 can of coconut milk
- 2 tablespoons powdered monkfruit Paleo option: 1/3 cup coconut sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Boiling water
- Powdered monkfruit Paleo option: maple sugar
For the Brûlée
- Preheat oven to 350℉.
- Fill a medium saucepan with water and place it on the stovetop to boil.
- In a medium bowl, lightly beat egg yolks.
- In another medium bowl, mix together the heavy cream (or coconut milk), monk fruit (or coconut sugar), and vanilla extract.
- Once combined, slowly stream into the egg mixture and whisk everything together until you reach a uniform color.
- Place four ramekins into a 9 x 13″ pan.
- Evenly distribute the egg mixture between the ramekins.
- Pour the boiling water from the saucepan into the 9 x 13" pan until the water is ⅔ up on the ramekins.
- Bake in the oven for 40 minutes.
- Take the pan out of the oven.
- Carefully place the ramekins on a wire rack. Cool to room temperature for 2 hours.
- Once they have come to room temperature, tightly wrap with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
For the Topping
- Remove the plastic wrap and lightly cover the top with the granulated monk fruit (or maple sugar).
- Use a hand torch to melt the monk fruit or maple sugar to the point it slightly burns. Enjoy immediately!
