Reduced sugar flan Recipe

Difficulty: Easy | Total Time: 1 hr 15 min. | Makes: 6 servings

This is a basic flan recipe made from whole foods (no sweetened condensed milk here). I eliminated the sugar in the flan itself and used maple syrup instead of the caramelized white sugar for a less processed topping.

  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 t. stevia extra powder
  • 1 T. vanilla
  • 6 T. maple syrup
  1. Heat milk in a saucepan just to a boil.
  2. Beat eggs. Slowly add half of the hot milk to eggs to temper. Then add egg/milk mixture back into the saucepan with milk. Stir constantly until you start to see bubbles forming. Do not let it boil.
  3. Remove from heat. Add stevia and vanilla. Pour into 6 ramekins in a hot water bath. Bake in 350 oven for 1 hour.
  4. When ready to serve, top flan with 1 T. maple syrup to each ramekin.
