Ingredients

  • 150 milliliters water
  • 80 grams unsalted butter
  • 30 grams whey powder (vanilla)
  • 100 grams almond flour
  • 2 small eggs (vanilla)
  • 200 milliliters whipping cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 10 milliliters sweetener (vanilla)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 100 grams butter

Instructions

  • 200 ml whipping cream 3 yolks 1/2 tsp xanthan 10 ml low carb sweetener 1 tsp vanilla extract 80-100 grams butter Just like in the classic eclairs recipe, you bring water to a boil, then add the butter.
  • After it melts, pour the almond flour and protein powder and mix with a silicone spatula over low heat until it forms a soft, yet compact dough, which will fall from the walls of the pot.
  • Chill the dough mixing it with the mixer on low speed.
  • Once it cools, add the eggs gradually.
  • My eggs were a little too big and had to add a tablespoon of coconut flour.
  • Pour the batter into a bag and form 3-4 cm long eclairs on a tray lined with baking paper, 2-3 cm distance between them.
  • Bake on low heat about 20 minutes, then turn off heat and leave in the oven under supervision, to ensure that they are dry inside.
  • Oh, the vanilla cream … I swear, it does not happen often, if it were to taste this cream ready-made, I would have thought that someone is trying to trick me.
  • Of course, the natural ingredients helped a lot.
  • Thus, I put the heavy cream in a small pot, and I brought it at a boiling point.
  • Separately, I mixed the egg yolks with xanthan (for thickening the cream), sweetener and the vanilla extract.
  • I took the cream from the heat, I poured some of it into the yolks, homogenized and then poured over the cream in the pot.
  • I mixed it over low heat until it became creamy and shinny.
  • In theory, you have to refrigerate this cream for 2-3 hours, but ain’t nobody got time for that.
  • I cut the long eclairs and filled them with the vanilla cream.
  • You can decorate with fresh cream or melted chocolate.
  • I kept a scoop of vanilla cream and put it on fire again with 2 squares of dark chocolate for decorating the eclairs..
  • Lovely!

  • Where are the 3 egg yolks in the ingredients list? The instructions aren’t clear. They also presume the reader has made choux before.
