Enjoy a fun breakfast with this Keto French Toast! Made with my high-protein, Zero Carb Bread, it’s perfect topped with butter, powdered monk fruit sweetener, and berries.
Recreate your Favorite Breakfast Dishes, Low Carb Style!
I am all for simplicity when it comes to healthy eating and low carb diets. Eggs, bacon, and sautéed greens makes the perfect breakfast.
That doesn’t mean you can’t experiment with recreating your favorite dishes! Having keto-friendly alternatives to standard recipes can help you from feeling deprived, and also keep you from feeling left out when friends or family are enjoying pastries or pancakes.
After making my first loaf of Zero Carb Bread, I knew it would make incredible french toast.
The light and fluffy bread soaks up the vanilla and cinnamon egg custard, and then fries to golden perfection in a skillet.
Enjoy it on its own, or recreate your favorite fancy French toast recipe by drizzling on keto syrups, adding berries, or dusting with powdered monk fruit sweetener.
What You’ll Need
- Zero Carb Egg White Protein Bread (or your favorite keto bread loaf)
- Pastured (Grass-fed) Egg (buy high quality ingredients to get the most nutrition!)
- Unsweetened Almond Milk or Coconut Milk (use heavy cream if you like!)
- Vanilla Extract
- Powdered Monk Fruit Sweetener
How to Make Keto French Toast
Step 1: Slice your Zero Carb Bread in thick slices.
Step 2: Into a shallow dish, add the eggs, unsweetened almond milk, vanilla and cinnamon. Also add 1 tablespoon of monk fruit sweetener, if desired. Whisk together well.
Step 3: Dip each slice of bread into the egg batter, allowing it to soak for about 30 seconds. Egg white bread has a slightly drier texture than regular bread, so the extra moisture is helpful.
Step 4: Melt coconut oil in a skillet over medium high heat, and cook both sides for 2-3 minutes, until lightly golden brown. Egg White Protein Bread will get chewy if cooked too long, so it’s best to slightly undercook it.
How to Serve Low Carb French Toast
- Keto Maple Syrup (sugar free maple syrup)
- Powdered Monk Fruit Sweetener (use discount code “BLISSFULLYLOWCARB” for 20% off your first order! This is my favorite keto sweetener.)
- Whipped Cream
- Sugar Free Raspberry Jam (you can also use strawberries or blackberries in this recipe!)
- Nut Butter (almond or sunflower butter are low carb. Peanut butter and cashew butter are higher in carbs).
How to Store Leftovers & FAQ
How to Store Leftover French Toast
Leftover french toast can be refrigerated in an air tight container for 2-3 days. It’s delicious cold with a little butter and some berries, but can also be reheated by adding it to a frying pan on medium heat for 2 minutes per side.
Is French Toast Keto Friendly?
It is not keto-friendly if it’s made with regular bread and topped with sugar laden syrup.
However, the egg batter used to make french toast is eggs and milk. This version uses unsweetened almond milk to to lower the carbs even more.
Stick to keto-friendly toppings, like butter, berries, and powdered monk fruit sweetener or “maple syrup” made from keto-friendly sweeteners.
Make Keto French Toast Sticks
Slice the bread in 1-inch wide sticks prior to dipping in the egg batter, then rotate the sticks on all 4 sides to cook them evenly.
Serve Keto French toast sticks with jam or sugar free maple syrup to dip!
