Low Carb Flan

I don't like to share my recipes with you guys until I have it completely down packed. This flan took me a little longer than the others to perfect but it finally happened, and when it did boy was it delish. The even funnier thing is I don't even like flan. I actually really hate it. Ok maybe hate is a strong word but its definitely not something I'm going to waste my precious macros on. Now I know what your thinking, "why did you make it?"  Well my Beauty turned Beast friends that is a wonderful question and the answer is because it is one of my mom's favorite desserts. Her birthday is July 4th, she an independant woman. I wanted to do something for her to start her celebration early since she has had a rough year. 

Between the chemo, steroids and all the other medicine, it has caused her to gain a bit of weight so I have her loosely on macros. I say loosely because it all really depends on how she feels. Nonetheless I made her this guiltless flan so she can enjoy and now all of you can too! 

I'd love to hear about healthy recipes you have in the comments below :)
