Low Carb Chocolate Custard

 

When it is cold outside I love to have a warm breakfast. This recipe is warm and comforting on a cold day. This recipe can be made with ingredients available at your local store, it’s special ingredient free. The glucomannan is optional and you can sub with xanthan gum or just leave out. My Walmart has xanthan gum, that is where I bought mine.


I used swerve sweetener but my favorite natural sugar free sweetener is THM’s gentle sweet. I feel that is is so close to tasting like sugar and doesn’t have the cooling affect like other sweeteners like swerve does. However, gentle sweet can’t be purchased in a local store, at least not here, so I wanted to give you measurements for swerve, in case that’s all that you have access to.

You temper eggs in the recipe but it is super easy to do. I feel like this is necessary but you can add everything except the gluccie (or xanthan gum) and whisk until hot and thickened and then add the small amount of gluccie. Also, adjust the sweetness to your preference. I no longer need things to be as sweet as I used to, however I still like things sweet.
