This dairy free, refined sugar free recipe is adapted from Iced Gem Bakes Chef Gemma McFarlane, Author of Gluten, Nut, Egg and Dairy Free Celebration Cakes. I used alternative sweeteners to make it sugar free Needless to say this recipe celebrates free range pasture fed chicken eggs so it is not egg free. The key ingredient besides the egg yolks is the coconut creme which works perfectly with the eggs to make the Crème Brûlée. You must be sure to use coconut creme which I get from Trader Joe's.
