MOUTHWATERING KETO FRENCH TOAST

This morning as I was waking up, I was thinking about different breakfast items that I might make Keto-friendly. While I love my keto biscuit recipesausage ball puffs, and pancakes, I wanted to try something different today. Then, I remembered my 90 Second Bread Recipe and thought I might change it up to make a Keto French Toast.

I made this recipe for my family one Saturday morning, and it was a huge hit! When they asked me to make more, I happily obliged. If you’d like to make a big batch of Keto French Toast, check out my family-sized recipe down below.

If Keto French Toast isn’t your favorite I have an entire recipe index of Keto Breakfast recipes.

HOW TO MAKE FRENCH TOAST KETO-FRIENDLY

As you know, french toast isn’t keto-friendly. It is pieces of toast that are dipped in an egg wash mixture topped with sugary syrup, making it a carb-loaded breakfast. However, there are plenty of ways to reduce the carbs in this recipe to make it keto-friendly.

First, since you’re making your bread and not using storebought, you’ll need to replace the flour with coconut flour. Coconut flour is much lower in carbs, making it a keto-friendly baking option. Then, you’ll need to replace regular maple syrup with sugar-free maple syrup. There you have it! Low carb, keto-friendly french toast that’s to die for!

Ingredients:

  • Coconut flour– This is the replacement for regular flour. Almond flour can be substituted you would need approx 3 tablespoons. I haven’t personally tested this recipe using almond flour. 
  • Baking Powder – Needed ingredient or the coconut flour
  • Butter – Adds moisture to the keto french toast since coconut flour can be dry without enough oil-based or egg ingredients.
  • Heavy Whipping Cream & Butter – This is for coating the keto french toast. 
  • Cream Cheese – Adds flavor, fat, and moisture to the batter.
  • Cinnamon & Nutmeg – Adds delicious flavor.
  • Lakanto Monkfruit Powdered Sugar or Swerve Confectioners’ Sugar – This adds all the sweetness without the carbs!
  • Spices – Both of these sweeteners are interchangeable.
  • Lakanto Sugar-Free Maple Syrup– This substitutes for regular maple syrup.

Tip for Making Low Carb French Toast

I only included 1 tbsp of the heavy whipping cream in the nutritional information because most of it is left behind. You make more than you need so that you can coat the bread on both sides. Also, the sugar alcohols from Swerve are not included since most subtract to calculate net carbs. 

Steps to Make Keto French Toast:

90 second bread batter with a whisk in the glass bowl.

Step 1: Melt butter in a ceramic or glass bowl. (mine was about 6 inches a shallow bowl works great too)

Step 2: Add the rest of the ingredients and whisk together until combined.

Step 3: Cook in the microwave for 90 seconds. Remove from the microwave and allow to cool for a minute or two. Cut the keto french toast in half.

Step 4: In a flat dish, add one egg and heavy whipping cream, then combine with a whisk. Soak bread on both sides in egg and heavy whipping cream mixture. Heat 1 tablespoon of butter in a skillet and fry each side until crisp.

Tip: You can sub unsweetened almond milk for heavy whipping cream.

Step 5: Fry the slices of bread on medium heat until the french toast is golden brown.

Step 6: Sprinkle 1/4 teaspoon Swerve Confectioners’ Sugar orLakanto Monkfruit Powdered Sugar on top and serve with sugar-free syrup. Berries are also delicious with this Keto French Toast.

Variations to this Recipe:

  • Use different kinds of extracts to enhance the flavor such as vanilla extract or pumpkin extract
  • Substitute almond milk for heavy whipping cream
  • Substitute almond flour for coconut flour. You will need approx 3 TB almond flour for coconut flour as it is not a 1:1 substitution.

How To Make French Toast Not Soggy 

Soak the bread in the egg mixture for approx 20 seconds, and transfer it to a separate sheet so that the bread is not sitting in the mixture. Add butter to the skillet and cook on low heat for 3-4 minutes on each side or until crispy. To keep the finished french toast warm, turn the oven to 200 degrees and place the french toast on a clean baking sheet until ready to serve. 

Is It Better To Use Butter or Oil for my Low-Carb French Toast? 

You can use either one, but if you are using butter, make sure that your griddle or cast-iron skillet does not get hotter than 375 degrees, causing the butter to burn. Wipe the pan clean after every two batches of toast.

How To Store Keto French Toast? 

Place the low-carb french toast in an airtight container or bag, and refrigerate within the first two hours of cooking for 3-4 days. To freeze, place in a freezer-friendly container and put in the freezer for 2-3 months. To reheat, place french toast in a skillet and cook each side until crispy and warm again.

HOW TO MAKE FAMILY-SIZE KETO FRENCH TOAST

My Family Size Low-Carb French Toast is a great recipe to make for weekend brunch. Just because you are following the keto diet doesn’t mean you can’t have a great family breakfast on the weekends. Serve it up with a side of bacon, sausage, or ham for a delicious meal that stays within your macros.

Low Carb French Toast is a great addition to your weekend brunch menu! Keto French Toast is easier than ever to make with our homemade keto bread recipe at the base!

Low-Carb Keto French Toast

When I first posted my 90 Second French Toast Recipe, I had several people ask how they could cook more at one time. I also had several ask how they could make it without cooking the bread in the microwave.

I decided the best thing to do was to increase the recipe to make a loaf of low-carb bread, then slice it and turn it into French Toast. The bread could be made the day before or frozen until you are ready to make French Toast.

I don’t personally love the bread as is, but once you dip it in the egg/heavy whipping cream mixture, fry it in butter, and sprinkle it with Swerve Confectioner’s Sweetener, you have a winner on your hands. Trust the process, it will be worth it. I promise!

Steps to Making a Loaf of Keto Bread:

Step 1: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Step 2: Melt butter and cream cheese together.

Step 3: Add all other ingredients and stir. (If butter and cream cheese are very hot you, may want to let them cool for about 5 minutes before adding other ingredients so that the hot butter doesn’t scramble the eggs.)

Step 4:Grease a loaf pan or line the loaf pan with parchment paper. I lined mine with parchment paper and would recommend doing the same.

Step 5:Pour batter in the loaf pan and bake for 40-50 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.

Step 6: Allow bread to cool for a few minutes then, remove from pan and slice.

7. Follow the instructions below on the recipe card below to make the keto french toast with the slices of bread.

  1. I’ve been after a good keto french toast recipe for SO long because ever since I started i’ve been missing it so much! I came across this recipe last night and made it this morning and it was absolutely delicious! I had to leave out the cream cheese because I didn’t have any on hand, but it still came out perfectly! I also topped it with a few fresh raspberries and my keto whipped cream. So tasty!!! Definitely a recipe I will keep making!

  2. Husband and I have been eating keto almost 6 weeks. We’ve found some delicious recipes and a few stinkers along the way, so I was a little apprehensive to make this French toast. Hubby is a devout real maple syrup person, so I wasn’t sure how this would work out. Happy to report that he thought it was pretty tasty! Only had some Aunt Jemima sugar free syrup on hand and even that tasted good! Also, I added about 1/2 tsp vanilla to the egg and HWC mixture as I always add vanilla when making regular French toast. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

  3. Hi ! Made your recipe today and loved it until the after taste came. I think i used a little bit to much nutmeg it really over powered the whole thing and wasn’t able to finish my French toast any suggestions for next time ?

  4. Thank you so much for this recipe, it was absolutely fantastic! So easy and tastes just like regular french toast. I won’t bother making pancakes anymore, this is a real keeper.

    1. You could refrigerate and wait to fry it in the skillet until right before you eat it. I would say no more than 5 days.

  5. 4 stars
    Super easy to make! The flavor was definitely there, but it seemed more dense and quite gritty… Any suggestions? Thanks!! 💜

    1. Keto approved flours just have a different texture that some describe as gritty. I don’t know if there is anything you can do to get away from that.

    1. You actually don’t use any bread. This recipe is a spin-off of my 90-second bread. The recipe makes the ‘bread.’ Hope you enjoy!

  6. Made this 2x now and turned out perfect! Have to say felt guilty eating it both times because it taste just like French toast. This is on my weekly menu.

    1. Awesome! It’s so great to eat such yummy dishes that you don’t have to feel guilty eating!!!

  7. 5 stars
    I switched to keto 4 years ago and have made many keto pancake, crepe and french toast recipes looking for something that comes even close to the carb and gluten-filled versions and this is by far the best. So good, thank you!!!

  8. 5 stars
