Easy Keto French Toast
I'm so excited to share this keto French toast recipe with you! It's such a simple, classic recipe, but so satisfying and perfect for that French toast craving. And the best part? It's only got 3 grams of net carbs per serving! So if you're following a keto lifestyle, you can enjoy French toast without worry! And even if you're not, you can still enjoy French toast while cutting back on sugar!
What kind of bread should be used for keto French toast?
The key to this keto French toast recipe is in the bread. In this case, we're using L'Oven Fresh Zero Net Carb Multiseed Bread from Aldi. This post isn't sponsored -- I just love this bread! Of course, if you're unable to find this particular bread, you can use any other Keto-friendly bread you can find! Another great option is Franz Keto Bread, which is also zero net carbs. But whatever low-carb bread that you use, this French toast will definitely be a go-to brunch treat!
Using keto bread is an easy way to make this classic breakfast dish keto friendly! Because all of the carbohydrates in the Zero Net Carb bread come from dietary fiber, the bread contains zero net carbs. But what does that mean?
What are net carbs?
If you're unfamiliar with the concept of net carbs, here's how they work. Basically, net carbs are the grams of carbohydrates in a food after you subtract dietary fiber. Because dietary fiber and sugar alcohols don't impact blood sugar, it can be excluded from measurements for the purposes of following a low-carb or diabetic-friendly diet. So in this case, this low carb French toast recipe contains 42 grams of carbs, which definitely sounds like a lot! But since 39 of those grams of carbs come from dietary fiber or sugar alcohols like erythritol, only the remaining 3 grams are absorbed by your body. So they're the only ones you need to measure for your daily carbohydrate count. That's where the 3 net carbs number comes from!

How long do you soak bread for French toast?
The short answer: it varies! It depends on the thickness of your bread slices, the type of bread, and whether it's stale or not. Many French toast recipes suggest soaking your bread for 10-20 minutes, but since the Zero Net Carb bread we're using is sliced pretty thin, about 5 minutes should be fine to soak the bread.
But one thing I love about this french toast recipe is that it's so simple and you can sort of play around with it to suit your preference! If you want, feel free to double the batter recipe and soak your bread longer to get more of a custard texture to your French toast! I personally love the ease and quickness of this recipe, but what I love most is that it's adaptable!
Keto French Toast Mixture
In addition to our low-carb bread, we're using a mixture of Keto-friendly ingredients like eggs, heavy cream, and a little cinnamon to create the most delicious custard for our Keto French toast!
For this recipe, you'll need either a griddle pan like this one, or another nonstick frying pan. Other than that, just a few tools to mix up the batter and soak your bread, and you're ready to go!
How to Make Keto French Toast - Tips and F.A.Q.
Aldi states on their website that the Zero Net Carb bread is Keto-friendly and has 0g net carbs. That makes it keto friendly, as it does not add any net carbs to your daily net carb total.
If you don't have any butter on hand, you can still make this low carb French toast! Just use cooking spray or vegetable oil to grease your pan. If you have butter-flavored cooking spray or shortening, that would be even better to give your French toast a buttery flavor.
Typically, you could substitute a plant-based milk for dairy milk in a French toast recipe. For this keto French toast, you'll want to opt for a keto-friendly plant milk like almond milk or coconut milk.
It is if you use the right bread! This keto french toast with zero carb bread is a perfect breakfast option for the keto diet!
