Low-Carb Keto French Toast

This recipe for keto French toast starts by making an egg loaf. Egg loaf is a low carb version of a quick bread with hints of cinnamon and vanilla.

Since this low carb bread is made up of primarily eggs it makes the ideal keto toast for making this sweet breakfast classic.

Cut out thick slices from a baked egg loaf and fry the keto bread slice in butter in a skillet. This creates a crisp, golden brown crust on the sides of the bread. The result is low carb French toast! Now all you need is to pour on the sugar free maple syrup and maybe add a dollop of whipped cream.

This iconic breakfast will surely make your morning brighter and you family happy.

Keto friendly syrups

If you are looking for the best keto syrup to go with your keto French toast, I highly, highly recommend ChocZero!!

They have maple syrup, maple pecan, and maple vanilla (my fav), plus a whole bunch of other flavors. All of their keto syrups are sugar free and sugar alcohol free. There are other sugar free maple syrups you can pick up, some even available in your grocery store, but this syrup is thick and pours like real maple syrup.

Toppings for your keto French toast

  • Whipped cream
  • Sugar free chocolate chips
  • Strawberries
  • Blackberries
  • Blueberries
  • Raspberries
  • Cinnamon
  • Sugar free maple syrup
  • Butter
  • Powdered erythritol or other powdered sweetener

Storing keto French toast

The best way to store your French toast is to keep it in the refrigerator, wrapped in plastic wrap or an air tight container. It will keep for up to 4 days. You can heat up your French toast slice for a minute in the microwave or fry it again in a skillet with butter.

If you are serving a crowd, you can make up multiple egg loaves ahead of time and then fry up the keto toast in the skillet the morning you want to serve them. You’re guests will love this refreshing take rather than a breakfast casserole.

  1. Have this in the oven and was reviewing my steps because my batter was way more runny than yours (I blended ingredients in a blender). I noticed in the video you stated 1/4 cup coconut flour, but the written instructions state 1/3 cup of coconut flour, which is what I used. Even then, batter consistency was different. I am hoping this still turns out well. Please advise if it is 1/3 or 1/4 cup of flour.
