CHOCOLATE (Homemade Option):

  • 2 tablespoons salted butter or coconut oil
  • 1 ounce unsweetened baking chocolate
  • 10 tablespoons heavy cream or coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup Natural Sweetener
  • 1 teaspoon stevia glycerite


  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
  • Separate the eggs and whip the whites and cream of tartar until very stiff (I use my beloved stand mixer and let it go for 5 minutes).
  • Slowly sift in the protein powder into the whites.
  • Combine softened cream cheese (OR YOLKS) and natural sweetener.
  • Using a spatula, very gently fold the cream cheese into the whites.
  • Spray a lasagna pan with coconut oil spray and spoon the mixture into the pan.
  • Bake for 18 to 20 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and let cool.
  • To make the CUSTARD: Whisk egg yolks, almond milk, and natural sweetener in medium metal bowl to blend.
  • Slowly mix in the melted butter so the eggs don't cook unevenly.
  • Set bowl over saucepan of simmering water.
  • Whisk mixture constantly and vigorously until thickened and instant-read thermometer inserted into mixture registers 140°F for 3 minutes, about 5 minutes total (or coats the back of a spoon).
  • Remove mixture from over water and chill for at least 1 hour in the fridge. (It can be prepared 1-3 days ahead and refrigerated. Re-whisk before serving.)
  • Place onto cooled bottom layer.


  • Chop the bars into small pieces.
  • In a double boiler or microwavable bowl, combine ingredients.
  • Microwave for 30 seconds. Stir well.
  • Drizzle onto éclairs and let rest on cooling rack until glaze has set.


  • Place the butter and chopped chocolate in a double boiler (or in a heat safe dish over a pot of boiling water).

  • Stir until smooth and thick.
  • Smooth all over the top of the cooled custard.

Testimony of the Day

In 2001 I felt like crap! Depression, anxiety, exhaustion, adrenal fatigue, hypothyroidism, mononucleosis, candida over growth, Celiac’s disease, and an abundant of other food sensitivities. All unknown at the time. I just knew I hurt mentally, emotional, spiritual, physically, psychologically and I didn’t know why. No one did. I was a full blown vegan.

    Hi , you wrote : In a bowl, whip egg whites with cream of tartar until peaks are stiff (about 5 minutes). In separate bowl, blend cream cheese and stevia . Place in lasagna pan. Bake for 30 minutes. Are you supposed to fold the cream cheese into the egg white mixture ?

  • Yes, I will fix that. Thanks;)

  • Judy says:

    I want to make sure I understand something. I cook the custard and let it cool. Then after I bake the éclair “pastry” I place on the custard on the baked pastry? I made the Cherry Danish last week, but the filling was baked with the pastry.
