Keto Crusted French Toast Inspiration

French toast is one of my favorite breakfasts. One thing that keeps me motivated on Keto is finding swaps that make my favorite foods lower in carbs and healthier, while still tasting as delicious as the original!

After discovering keto bread and keto syrup, I knew I had to try and get a great french toast recipe. Guys…I think I got it!

Keto Crusted French Toast Ingredients

While there are tons of amazing brands out there for keto bread, I decided to use Chompies (got it at Sprouts!) because it’s thick and ideal for french toast. It has an amazing texture, you won’t even realize it’s low carb!

This bread didn’t get as crispy as regular bread, which is my favorite part of french toast and what I missed the most. After getting my newest Magic Spoon shipment (code TASTESLOVELY for $5 off their 4-pack), I had this wild idea to try their Maple Waffle cereal as a coating to give keto french toast some crispiness! And OMG did it deliver!

Topped with Lakanto Maple Syrup (made with monkfruit!), blueberries, and strawberries, keto crusted french toast is my family’s latest breakfast treat, without all the carbs! Bonus? This yummy meal also packs in a ton of protein and fat, making it super macro-friendly!

Keto Crusted French Toast


  • Author: Natalie
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 5 minutes
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 2 1x

Ingredients

Scale

Batter

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup french vanilla Nutpods (see Notes)

Crust

French Toast

  • 4 slices keto friendly bread (I used Chompies)
  • 2 tablespoons ghee
  • fresh strawberries and blueberries
  • keto friendly maple syrup (I used Lakanto)

Instructions

Batter

  1. In a medium size bowl, make the batter by beating the eggs with the nutpods.

Crust:

  1. Make the crust by pulsing the maple waffle magic spoon cereal in a food processor until coarse crumbs (or crush in a bag).
  2. Pour the crust into another medium size bowl.

Make the French Toast

  1. Heat your cast iron skillet over medium low heat for 5 minutes.
  2. Dip each slice of bread in the egg wash, pressing gently with your fingers to help it soak up the batter.
  3. Then, dredge the bread in the crust and coat both sides.
  4. When your pan is warm, add the ghee.
  5. Cook the french toast for about 2 minutes per side, until golden brown.

Serving

  1. Top the french toast with fresh berries and 2 tablespoons keto friendly syrup.
  2. Serve warm.
  3. Leftovers will keep in an airtight container refrigerated for at least 5 days, or frozen for at least 6 months.
  4. As always, lots of tips, FAQs and substitution info in the Recipe Notes below!

Notes

Nutpods: I love using Nutpods, but you could use vanilla almond milk, coconut milk (or any dairy free liquid). If you’re ok with dairy, heavy cream would work too. Same amount for any liquid substitution.

Egg Free: I don’t think this can be made egg free? If you try an egg free version and it works please leave a comment and let me know how you did it!

Cereal: My favorite keto friendly cereal to use is the Maple Waffle Magic Spoon (code TASTESLOVELY for $5 off). You could use any other keto friendly cereal, I haven’t found any others that I love though. I bet shredded unsweetened coconut could work too if you have that on hand!

Keto Bread: I’m still working my way through tasting all the keto breads. For this one I used Chompies which is actually great because it’s so thick! But any keto friendly bread would work.

Skillet: I love my cast iron skillet, but any large skillet would work.

Leftovers: I’d reheat leftovers (from the fridge or thawed from the freezer) either in a toaster or best would be too crisp up again in ghee in a cast iron skillet over medium low heat.

Toppings: My favorite toppings are strawberries, blueberries and keto friendly syrup. But feel free to use what you have and love!

Nutrition Facts: The nutritional information is calculated based on the exact ingredients and quantities listed in the Ingredients above. It includes 2 tablespoons keto syrup per serving, and 2 tablespoons strawberries and 2 tablespoons blueberries. It is provided as a courtesy only and should be construed as an estimate rather than a guarantee. Ingredients can vary, especially if you make recipe substitutions. Always best to go off your own calculations based on the ingredients and measurements you use.
