Reduced sugar flan

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.

Instructions

  1. 1Heat milk in a saucepan just to a boil.
  2. 2Beat 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. 3Remove from heat. Add stevia and vanilla. Pour into 6 ramekins in a hot water bath. Bake in 350 oven for 1 hour.
  4. 4When ready to serve, top flan with 1 T. maple syrup to each ramekin.
