Slow Cooker Low-Carb Desserts
Would you believe these custards were made in the slow cooker?
Making dessert in the crock pot or slow cooker might not be something you've ever done, but once you try it, you'll wonder why it took you so long in the first place!
My whole family, all 3 picky kids and the picky hubs loved this keto version of custard!
My oldest teen said, "It tastes like perfect French Toast, but without the bread!"
My youngest was happy no tree nuts were involved in the making of this recipe since he has a tree nut and peanut allergy.
And my daughter said it was so delicious and, "Can I have more Whipped Cream on it?" So to me, it's a winner and it was so completely easy!
Easy Low Carb Egg Custard Recipe
Just 5 main ingredients for this creamy dessert. Whole eggs, heavy cream, coconut milk, low carb sweetener and maple extract.
We also like a pinch of sea salt and a little ground cinnamon, but it is optional.
Mix it all up in a small bowl, pour into individual ramekins like I did for this delicious keto dessert or even make it in one large dish or right in the crock pot itself. But please note, cook time will increase making it as one large sugar free custard.
I prefer the perfectly portioned small ramekins and that way no one can overindulge.
How to Make Easy Keto Custard in Slow Cooker
To view the nutritional information, scroll to the bottom of this blog post and you will find the recipe card.
Combine all the ingredients into a stand mixer or large bowl using a hand mixer and blend on medium high until well combined.
Grease six- 4 ounce capacity ramekins and evenly pour batter into each, filling each only ¾ of the way, essentially about 3 ounces filled.
Place 4 ramekins on the bottom of the slow cooker. Arrange the other two carefully against a side of the slow cooker, and slightly on the edges of the bottom ramekins.
Close the lid and cook for 2 hours on high or when the center is set but still jiggly in the middle.
Remove from the slow cooker and cool to room temperature for 1 hour then place in the fridge to chill for 2-3 hours.
Enjoy with some Sugar-Free Whipped Cream, fresh berries and a sprinkle of cinnamon!
If you prefer to make this in an oven instead of the slow cooker, place ramekins in a large baking pan. I would suggest preheating your oven to 325 degrees F.
Pour hot water into the large baking dish to bake these in a water bath for 45 minutes to one hour.
Brenda's Pro Tip FAQs
What if I don't have maple extract?
If you don't have maple extract you can certainly use real maple syrup, but of course that will change the calories and carbs of the entire recipe.
You could also try Lakanto Sugar Free Maple Syrup, but use just a very small amount. You could also use vanilla extract to replace the maple extract.
Can I use a different sweetener?
I love Swerve brown sugar and Sukrin Gold as a replacement for all things that need that brown sugar flavor and this product works perfectly in this recipe, but if you don't have it on hand you can sub with whatever sweetener you prefer.
Use my Sweetener Guide & Conversion chart that provides you other sweetener options and amounts.
Can I replace egg yolks with egg whites?
No, the custard won't thicken without adding the yolks.
Can I make this dairy free?
You could use all coconut milk or coconut cream if you can't have heavy cream.
I've made this with all heavy whipping cream instead of using coconut milk, it was equally as delicious. Using all heavy cream will also increase your calories but will reduce your carbs.
What size are the ramekins?
