Breakfast is back!
There’s nothing better than a delicious helping of French toast for breakfast or brunch, but sadly it’s traditionally loaded with sugar and carbs.
Today I’m sharing with you my newest creation – keto French toast! With inspiration from Keto Sam I Am for sharing her Egg Loaf, I started with a twist on the egg loaf base and decided to take it up a few notches to truly replicate French toast by slicing and pan-frying it! This recipe delivers the sweet and savory flavors you’ve been missing without all the added carbs.
I’m not kidding when I say this is the easiest keto bread you will ever make. My family has been requesting this keto French toast for breakfast often so I’ve been making it at least once a week.
The brown Swerve and nutmeg really make this carb-free bread taste exactly like French toast!
Tips for making the BEST keto French toast:
- I love this recipe for the simple fact you can add so much to this bread to make it your own, such as banana extract, cocoa powder, pumpkin spice seasoning, or even berries and pecans.
- If you are looking for something savory instead of sweet, try adding ham, bacon crumbles, and cheese to your bread! Or just leave it plain and use the bread for a keto sandwich. YUMMO!
- Depending on how long you bake the loaf of bread, it can be a custard-like texture if it doesn’t cook through long enough. Make sure to cover your loaf pan with foil to prevent the top from burning if it needs a few extra minutes to cook.

We're taking a low carb egg loaf and turning it into slices of keto French toast. You'll feel like you're eating the real thing without all the added carbs!
- 8 eggs, room temperature
- 8 oz. cream cheese, room temperature
- 4 tablespoons butter, room temperature
- 2 tablespoons brown Swerve
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
- keto-friendly maple syrup, such as ChocZero
- whipping cream
- pecans or walnuts
Make sure all ingredients are at room temperature. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a bread pan with coconut oil cooking spray to prevent any sticking or you can use parchment paper.
Add all ingredients to a blender and mix until everything is blended together.
Pour batter into bread loaf pan and bake for 35-40 minutes depending on the thickness.
Remove bread from oven and let the bread cool for 10 minutes before cutting into it. You can serve the slices as is, or toast them on the stove with butter for a true French toast experience! YUM.
To toast the loaf slices: In a skillet over medium heat, add 1 tablespoon of butter and melt. Add in a few slices of "toast" to the skillet and fry on each side for about 1 minute.
Remove french toast from the skillet and serve with a keto-friendly syrup. Enjoy!

Check out what my Hip teammates had to say about this keto French toast:
“This recipe is genius and I cannot get enough of it! The flavor is so decadent and right on with traditional French toast taste and consistency. It was so funny to see how much this loaf of bread grew in the oven, it got so tall!” – Jenna
“Ever since I discovered keto French toast, I’ve been making it at least once a week, no joke! It is sooo yummy and it reminds me so much of the real thing. Even my kids love it! It’s incredibly easy to make and I love that there are only a few simple ingredients that I usually already have on hand. This is a must-make keto recipe!” – Taylor

I found Keto bread at Aldi’s today. I bought 4 loaves and froze them. French toast will be amazing. A lot less work.
Woohoo! Glad you found the Keto bread at your store, Laurie! Enjoy your French toast!
Aldi’s Keto bread is amazing!
Can’t wait to try this
We sure hope you love it!
Can it be made ahead and toasted the next day?
It sure can, Michelle! Just make sure to refrigerate it over night!
I’ve tried a few different recipes and it’s all a fail. Not sure where I’m going wrong.
I’m so sorry! Have you tried this one? If so, what failed?
Sorry I wasn’t clear, I tried this French toast recipe. The texture was not firm like it looks in the picture. I get the same results with other egg loaf recipes.
