Sugar Free Keto Vanilla & Chocolate Flan


Sugar Free Keto Vanilla & Chocolate Flan: 2g carbs per slice.

My latest recipe features chocolate. Again. And there will be more. I can’t get enough of it. The good type, that is. 100% cocoa, in fact. But I hate that it’s so bitter. HOW munch monster (aka ketohusband) can stomach it straight out of the wrapper I’ll never understand. I was always a milk chocolate kind of girl. Never into dark chocolate. Let alone pure chocolate. Keto life, however, means I don’t touch the milk stuff anymore (the sugar content is crazy!!!), so dark chocolate it is. And not just ANY dark chocolate, but the one with the LOWEST CARBS. Montezuma’s Absolute Black 100% chocolate, to be precise. I find it extremely bitter, but add stevia and erythritol to it, and it’s transformed.

This Sugar Free Keto Vanilla & Chocolate Flan literally melts in your mouth. It is moist and light and tastes divine.Sugar Free Keto Vanilla & Chocolate Flan

In my usual style, the recipe is quick, easy, and won’t let you down.

Ingredients for Sugar Free Keto Vanilla & Chocolate Flan.

I’ve already mentioned Montezuma’s Absolute Black 100% chocolate. 8g carbs per 100g chocolate. I buy my stock from Sainsbury’s when it’s on offer. You can use other chocolate, but chances are it will contain more carbs, so you’ll have to adjust the macros.

Unsalted butter is essential. I only ever use Kerrygold.Sugar Free Keto Vanilla & Chocolate Flan

Lupin flour is my favourite ingredient ever. Cheaper and less carby than almond or coconut flour, but it can be difficult to find. I have placed a link in the recipe that will take you to the online store where I buy my supplies. Warning: lupin seeds belong to the same family as peanuts, so if you have a peanut allergy, it is best that you avoid lupin flour – just in case. If that applies to you, simply replace lupin flour with fine almond flour and the result should be similar.

Coconut milk is readily available in stores. Make sure you use the drinking variety that comes in cartons, not the tinned, thickened stuff. If you’re into organic, home made, natural foods, and you fancy making your own coconut milk that is lower in carbs than any packaged brand, click here for my easy recipe.

Another essential ingredient for this recipe is cream cheese. My favourite is Tesco’s Full Fat Soft Cheese. It has the lowest carb content of all the cream cheeses I’ve scrutinised, just 1.8g per 100g. In comparison, Philadelphia contains 4g per 100g. Big difference. And you know that when you’re aiming at no more than 20-25g carbs a day, every little helps.

With vanilla extract you have choices. Don’t go for the cheaper but nastier vanilla flavourings. I make my own extract (even though I end up giving it away every time!). It’s easy and very cost effective. Click here to find out how.  

Eggs, stevia and erythritol complete the picture.Sugar Free Keto Vanilla & Chocolate Flan

I’m off to get ready for my long road trip across Europe this weekend. By the time this post will be published, I’ll be over the Alps and Dolomites on my way to Venice.

  1. This was beautiful, a light dessert and very tasty. I didn’t swirl the chocolate enough so ended up with some hard bits, might used chocolate drops next time for ease.

  2. where do I find erythritol?

    Hello! I am looking forward to making this, but I find that I can’t tolerate the bitterness of Stevia. I taste it every time, like the princess and the pea. ? Any tips? Clearly they go together in your recipes for a reason.

    • Hey Jennifer! Some Stevia brands are more bitter than others. I used to use a Stevia type that had no residual bitterness whatsoever, but the supply stopped 2 years ago ?. Since then I’ve tried a multitude of substitutes (most of them disgusting!) and the one I’m using now is the best choice, in my opinion. It does have some bitterness, especially if used neat (straight on the tongue or in tea/coffee) or in large quantities, but combining it with erythritol seems to neutralise that negative effect. All my recipes are tested on people who love sugar and I only publish them if no-one detected strange flavours.
      That said, you could use other sweeteners like monkfruit, etc, but remember that they all contain mostly erythritol anyway – they just cost more and don’t sweeten as much, plus some affect blood glucose. I’d say give it a try using the exact same ingredients I used and let me know how you get on.

    I made this most delicious flan to take on a mini- break, to the beautiful scenic location, of Argyll & Bute, last week. As we live in Scotland, It only took us about 2 hours to get there,& I have to say, as my Husband & me, sat amongst the majestic mountains of Glencoe, on a heather patch, Sunday afternoon, in the most amazing sunshine, we thought we were tasting a bit of heaven. We enjoyed this so much, & it did travel well. The texture is just right, & the flavours are nothing short of scrummy. My other halfs only complaint…I should have made more…but he does eat a lot..all Keto of course.
    Now you don’t NEED to be sat in this stunning area, to enjoy this gorgeous treat, as Antya,the recipe provider, publishes amazing tasty recipes to enjoy, where ever you are ! Of course, THE queen of keto, came up… yet again.. with a winner with this flan, quick & simple to make, ingredients that are easy for us Keto followers ( & for anyone else for that matter ) to find, & an end result that is perfect. We bow to you your Majesty, keep coming up with the goodies, & long may you rule over your Keto followers ..x

    • Dear Marion, thank you so much for your very kind comment…you made me blush about the queen part… it’s just a nickname my daughter uses for me, not something to aggrandise myself with, far from it! You should see how many fails and inedible concoctions I go through before I hit the jackpot, hahaha. Queen of failures, more like!
      Au revoir. ?Keep Calm and Keto On?

  5. I love that this is sugar free! I’m trying to cut out sugar but the treats are what get me.

    • Cutting out sugar doesn’t mean giving up sweetness 🙂 …be careful to avoid artificial sweeteners, though…linked to many health issues….
