Flan is a creamy and sweet custard-based dish that is wildly popular in Mexico and across Europe. While traditional flan is made from eggs, milk, and sugar, this sugar-free keto flan is made with unsweetened almond milk, allulose, and egg to create a sweet treat that is low in calories and carbs! One whole single-serving keto flan is less than 50 calories and 1g of net carbs!

Yields2 Servings
Prep Time20 minsCook Time30 minsTotal Time50 mins
Ingredients
Caramel Layer
 3 tbsp allulose
 1 ½ tbsp water
Custard Layer
  cup unsweetened almond or coconut milk
 3 tbsp allulose
 1 egg
 ½ tsp vanilla extract
 1 pinch salt
 optional: caramel syrup for garnish on top(Choc Zero brand used)
Directions
1

Preheat the oven to 350F and grease 2 ramekins.

2

To make the caramel layer, combine the allulose and water in a small saucepan.

3

Heat this mixture over low-medium heat. Once the caramel begins to bubble, increase the heat to medium and continuously stir.

4

Once the caramel begins to brown and thicken, pour evenly into the two ramakins and set aside.

5

To make the custard layer, combine the milk, vanilla extract, and allulose in a saucepan and heat over medium-low heat. Once the mixture begins to simmer, remove it from heat.

6

Allow this mixture to cool for a few minutes so that when you combine the egg in, it does not cook.

7

Once the mixture is slightly above room-temperature, crack in the egg and stir until well combined.

8

Pour this custard mixture over the caramel layer in the ramakins.

9

To create a water bath for the keto flan, pour hot water into a large baking dish so that it will cover the ramakins about half way up.

10

Place your keto flan in the water bath and place in the oven for 30-40 minutes of until the middle is set.
Note: depending on the temperature of the water, this may take longer. If it is not set, cook in additional 5-minute intervals until set.

11

Once your keto flan is set, remove it from the oven and allow it to completely cool.
Note: we recommend leaving them in the fridge for a few hours.

12

Once chilled, either serve as is, or use a knife to scrape the edges of the ramekin, set a plate on top, and flip.

13

Optional: serve your keto flan with additional caramel syrup over top.

  1. Helena says:

    Can I use eritritol instead of allulose? Same proportion?

    1. Hi, Helena. You can use erythritol, but you will need less. I would use around 1/2-3/4 of the amount (if it’s pure erythritol and not a blend). Please be aware that erythritol doesn’t brown like allulose so you won’t be able to get the same effect, but it will still taste similar!
