Keto Vanilla Crème Brûlée Bars

Vanilla crème brûlée desserts are normally creamy and without structure, right? They’re viscous. So how do these keto crème brûlée bars hold up like you see in the photos?

The preparation method and ingredient ratio creates more of a “set” consistency, almost gelatinous.

I joke that they’re like creamy jello jigglers for adults.

You can definitely grab the squares from the pan with your hands (guilty!), though it’s less messy to eat on a plate with a spoon or fork.

Easy Keto Crème Brûlée Topping

The easiest part about this easy crème brûlée dessert is the topping. You don’t do anything. Just allow the oven to do its thing.

The top layer will become browned all on its own, and even caramelize a bit, naturally forming the much loved toasted “sugary” crust that we all love on crème brûlée.

It’s kind of amazing. Between the “set” consistency that allows you to slice this dessert into squares and the topping that just magically appears, these bars are nothing short of miraculous.

    When does the heavy cream get added?

    • Jenn March 24, 2021 at 2:06 pm - Reply

      You can add it in at the same time as the milk. Thank you for catching that omission! I’ll fix it right away. Thanks for stopping by!

    Do you let them cool in the pan ?

    • Jenn March 24, 2021 at 2:05 pm - Reply

      Yes! These set really well, but they still retain that signature creme brulee custardy texture, so I don’t recommend removing them till they cool. Enjoy!

    Can you use all cream?

    • Jenn March 24, 2021 at 5:10 pm - Reply

      I haven’t tried that yet, but I don’t see why not. It would just be a bit richer.

    Do I have to use monk fruit?

    • Jenn March 24, 2021 at 5:10 pm - Reply

      I haven’t tried other sweeteners for this yet, but you could try something else. Let me know if you do!

    2 questions. Can I cool them in the fridge instead of on the counter? And can I freeze them?

    • Jenn March 30, 2021 at 11:59 am - Reply

      I haven’t tried freezing them yet, but you can definitely cool them in the fridge. I just wouldn’t put them in the fridge hot.

    Quick easy prep and delicious end result. I had to sub (I’m totally unprepared for most recipes!), so used Natvia (Erythritol/stevia blend) and full amount of cream (no milks). Very rich. Also had to use a smaller loaf (9×6) dish so lowered temp and baked for longer.

      Awesome! I’m so glad it worked out for you. Thanks for sharing your subs!

    Can you double recipe & put in larger container?

    • Jenn April 7, 2021 at 12:48 pm - Reply

      That’s a really good question. I wouldn’t recommend it, just because this is a very liquidy batter and probably wouldn’t cook all the way through in the middle. My recommendation if you want to double it is to put it in two 8″x8″ pans instead of one larger one. Let me know how it goes! Enjoy!

    Can you use a silicone 8×8

    • Jenn April 26, 2021 at 9:25 am - Reply

      I haven’t actually tried that yet, but I’d love to know if you try the silicone pan and if it works out! Enjoy!

    I used swerve instead of monk fruit and the top did not brown. Do you think the powdered sweve is the reason?

    • Jenn April 27, 2021 at 2:57 pm - Reply

      That’s a great question. I haven’t used swerve. I was under the impression that erythritol is what makes it brown, and both swerve and lakanto (the monkfruit brand I use) have erythritol. I feel silly asking, but did you follow all the instructions or do anything else different? I’m a little stumped!

    I just made this and it is wonderful. I used the monkfruit and it browned and the warm sugary smell filled the house! I used the blender adding softened butter to the eggs in the beginning. I only had whole milk and a 9×6 glass pan but it worked. Thanks for the recipe!

    3 net carbs for how many oz/grams per square?

    • Jenn July 5, 2021 at 10:06 am - Reply

      I’m not sure! Each square is 1/16th of an 8″ x 8″ pan. Enjoy!

  12. Anna August 18, 2021 at 11:50 am - Reply

    Definitely planning to try these! I think I may add a pinch of nutmeg to a batch and see if it will taste like a southern egg custard pie.

    • Jenn August 18, 2021 at 2:39 pm - Reply

      Ooooh! Yummy! That sounds delicious. I’m a huge fan of nutmeg. ;) Enjoy!
