Whip up this incredibly easy and extremely delicious Sugar Free Low Carb Vanilla Bean Creme Brulee in just 40 minutes! Perfect for a lazy day or when you need a healthier dessert, all you need is 4 ingredients.

When it comes to healthy, delicious, sugar free and gluten free desserts I LOVE this recipe for Vanilla Bean Ice Cream, this amazing recipe for Cinnamon Roll Donuts, and of course, Creme Brulee. The first time I had this delicious custard dessert was actually an Italian restaurant in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Yes, I know. Italian restaurant in Mexico - I think it is just as funny as you. We were wandering around and stumbled across this beautiful restaurant so we went in and it had the best food I have had. For dessert we tried our very first Creme Brulee and have been absolutely hooked ever since! Good thing it is easy to make because I could not live without this amazing dessert. Also, I am SO ready to go back on a vacation! It has been 3 years.. it's time.

Frequently asked questions

What if I do not have a torch?

Not to fret! You can place your Creme Brulee under your broiler in the oven, watch it carefully to ensure it doesn't burn.

Can I make this Creme Brulee without vanilla beans?

Yes, although I love the taste of real vanilla beans in this recipe, if you only have vanilla extract use 1-2 teaspoons in place of the vanilla beans. You could also use a vanilla bean paste if that is what you have on hand.

Is Creme Brulee Served warm or cold?

Creme Brulee is traditionally served cold.

Can I make Creme Brulee ahead of time?

Yes, you can keep your custard in the fridge for a day or two ahead of time. You will just want to wait to add on your swerve topping and caramelizing until you are going to serve.

How do I store Creme Brulee?

Store your custard in the fridge tightly wrapped with plastic wrap. The pure and simple flavors of the creamy custard can pick up the flavor of other things that are stored in the fridge next to it when left uncovered.

Do I need to bake Creme Brulee in a water bath?

Yes, this is to prevent curdling or cracking. The water bath ensures the eggs stay soft and silky smooth.

Instructions to make Easy Sugar Free Creme Brulee:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare 4 small ramekins by greasing them up. Place them all in a deep dish or baking dish. Set aside.
  2. In a mixing bowl, add your egg yolks and 1 tbs of sweetener and whisk together, until combined.
  3. In a small saucepan, add your heavy cream, sweetener, scraped out vanilla beans, and full vanilla bean pod in a sauce pan on medium heat, heat it up until the edge just start to bubble, whisking occasionally. Remove from heat once edges start to bubble.
  4. Bowl water in an electric kettle, enough to fill your dish with water half way up the ramekins.
  5. Remove vanilla bean pod and slowly add the heavy cream mixture to your egg yolks while continuing to whisk, until completely combined and smooth.
  6. Distribute the creme brulee mixture evenly amongst the four ramekins. Pour almost boiling water into the baking dish until halfway up the sides of the ramekins.
  7. Bake the creme brulees for 30-35 minutes, until the centre is only slightly jiggly. Remove from the oven carefully and allow to cool in water for 1 hour and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Once cool, refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or overnight.
  8. When set, remove the creme brulees from the refrigerator and let sit for 20 minutes. Top each creme brulee with 1-2 teaspoons of swerve. Using a blowtorch, torch the tops of each creme brulee to caramelize.
