Keto French Toast

Share this post

Every Christmas Eve, before my mom would go to bed, she would fix an overnight French toast casserole for us to have on Christmas morning after we opened our gifts. That memory has etched a special place in my heart for French toast. 

I mean, can you really go wrong with sweet bread soaked in cinnamon and brown sugar? No, you really can’t. Drizzled with a little maple syrup and powdered sugar, it’s heaven on a plate! 

But now that I eat a keto and sugar free diet, French toast isn’t really part of that plan since the main ingredient is bread. What’s a girl to do???

Lo and behold, I recently discovered that you can buy fantastic low carb breads. Pumpernickel, rye, multigrain, white, and even cinnamon swirl! As soon as I saw they had cinnamon swirl bread, I knew I needed to try it for some keto French toast!

Do you see that swirl? Talk about drool worthy!  And trust me when I say it feels and tastes like normal bread! If you miss having a real sandwich, you MUST try!

Keto French Toast Ingredients

  • 1 large loaf LC Foods Cinnamon Bread
  • 8 tbsp butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup Sukrin Gold brown sugar substitute
  • 1 cup + 1 tbsp unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tsp + 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp cream cheese
  • 1/3 cup powdered sweetener
  • sprinkle of cinnamon

Keto French Toast Directions

  1. Slice loaf of bread into 12 thick Texas toast-style slices. You may do 24 regular slices if you prefer. (that will change the serving size to 2 pieces)
  2. Whisk melted butter with Sukrin Gold. Use a spoon to spread a little of the mixture on the bottom of a 9×13 baking dish. It does not have to be completely covered.
  3. Whisk 1 cup of the almond milk, 4 eggs, and 1 tsp of the vanilla extract together.
  4. Arrange half of the bread on the bottom of the baking dish. Pour half of the egg mixture over the bread. Layer remaining bread on top and repeat.
  5. Cover with foil and refrigerate overnight (at least 8 hours).
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.
  7. While in the oven, prepare the glaze by whisking 1 tbsp almond milk, 1/4 tsp vanilla extract, 3 tbsp cream cheese, and 1/3 cup sweetener.
  8. Pour over hot French Toast. Serve with sugar-free maple syrup.

Top Tips 

  • For this recipe, I used a large loaf of the cinnamon swirl bread. The large loaves come unsliced so I cut them into roughly 12 thick Texas toast-style slices and then cut each slice in half, just because I used an oval-shaped dish. 
  • This dish would be perfect for meal prepping, holiday meals, potlucks, or even just a Wednesday night brupper meal (breakfast-for-dinner)! Your non-keto friends and family are sure to love this! It’ll be our little secret that this dish is healthy!  😉
