Look no further than this easy keto french toast for a kid-friendly low-carb breakfast. You can even make ahead in sticks or slices and freeze for quick morning meals before school or work.
Since I don’t have any time to cook breakfast on work days, I like to cook at least one special morning meal on the weekend. A family favorite is cinnamon french toast made with my simple low-carb bread recipe.
The savory quick bread holds together well when sliced. And, it isn’t soft like many store bought white breads.
I was able to cut the bread into regular half inch slices instead of the thicker one inch slices. But thicker slices can be used if you prefer the Texas style.
You can even cut each slice in half lengthwise for keto french toast sticks! The kids really like the sticks so they can dip them.
When I have time, I like to make a double batch to have plenty to freeze for later. It’s super convenient when I need to get breakfast on the table quickly on busy mornings.
How to Make French Toast Keto
The key to cutting carbs in the recipe is to replace the bread with a low-carb alternative. It’s best to make your own bread. Even a quick keto mug muffin will do.
Once you have your bread, there’s just a few simple steps needed to make the keto french toast.
- Combine eggs, low-carb milk, vanilla extract, and cinnamon in a large shallow bowl.
- Dip the bread slices into the egg mixture to coat well.
- Fry in a skillet or on a griddle until browned on both sides.
That’s all there is to it! If your bread is already made, it should take no longer than 15 minutes. Then you can relax and enjoy your delicious morning treat.
The keto french toast tastes great hot off the griddle or pan. But if you like a little sweetness, dust on some powdered sweetener or pour on your favorite syrup.
For the least impacting maple flavored syrup, try Walden Farms pancake syrup. It’s not only zero carb, it’s calorie free too!
I’m hoping to make my own homemade maple flavored syrup in the future. But, store bought is easy and convenient for me now.
Low-Carb French Toast Sticks
My kids prefer french toast made in sticks versus slices. That’s because they can eat it with their hands. And they prefer to dunk the bread into the syrup!
The bread slices are already rectangular because it’s a short loaf. So you’ll just need to cut them into thicker slices then cut in half lengthwise.
It’s just the shape of the bread that’s different. The process for making sticks is the same as that for slices.
Storing Leftovers and Reheating
Leftovers can be stored covered in the refrigerator for up to a week. For longer storage, place them in sealed containers in the freezer for up to 3 months.
To reheat, place slices in a toaster on desired setting. Or place in the microwave for 30 to 90 seconds. You can also place them in the oven at 400°F for about 4 to 6 minutes.
