Keto Baked French Toast

This is a way to have cake for breakfast and add in some protein with eggs!

It is a 2 part process, but goes quick once you are done with the baking. I recommend an 8 inch cast iron skillet as I used, but if for some reason you do not have one, you can go with a pie pan, glass preferred.

DO NOT FORGET to line your skillet or pie plate with parchment paper. Greasing it simply will not get out the cake after baking. DO NOT SKIP LINING WITH PARCHMENT! Ok, I will quit shouting, lol!

If you love cast iron as much as I do, then you would absolutely LOVE my 2nd cookbook “Chaffles Cast Iron and The Crock” !!

LOW CARB FRENCH WAFFLE CASSEROLE

4 to 5 cups low carb waffles

4 lg eggs

1 cup unsweetened almond milk

1/2 cup heavy cream

1 tbsp monkfruit granulated sweetener

1/2 tsp caramel stevia drops(or regular liquid stevia)

1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

2 Tbsp cold butter; cut into pea sized cubes

….

2 tbsp monkfruit

Mix monkfruit, maple extract and cinnamon in a small bowl with a fork until blended.

Bake for 45-50 min at 350F until top is crispy and it no longer wiggles when gently shook.

The custard inside should not be wet. Put back in oven 5 min at a time until it is not wet. This all depends on what waffles you use and how well they soak up the liquid.

Keto Copycat Brown Sugar

You may have heard of Sukrin gold sugar. It is a sugar free brown sugar replacement. After looking at its ingredients I see that malt flavoring is used. This is something I avoid as I steer clear of gluten since I have an intolerance. My sinuses swell and I break out in eczema😣

Malt is usually made from barley and is not gluten free. It can be made from corn, but that is rare. Most malt comes from barley grain that has been soaked, germinated and dried. Ingredients made from maltinclude malt flavoring,

malt syrup and malt extract, none of which are currently considered gluten free.

So imagine how excited I was to put together some commonly found ingredients to make a very tasty copycat substitute of this baking gem!

I have found my ingredients online at thrivemarket.com or luckyvitamin.com for sales. Amazon pretty much has them all too!

Keto Copycat Brown Sugar

1 cup Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener(golden preferred over classic)

3/4 tsp Frontier Brand Maple Flavoring/Extract(preferred,but others may work)

1 tsp SweetLeaf Sweet Drops Liquid Stevia – Vanilla (or other brand that lists glycerin as 1st ingredient)

Put all ingredients in a small bowl and mix with a fork cutting the extract and stevia drops into it until it is uniform in color.

Use like brown sugar in recipes. This works great in baked goods especially!!

What would you use it in?

Keto Applesauce Bread

I live in Washington. We have TONS of apples🍎

A friend of mine gifted us with 2 big boxes of apples for 2 jars of my Keto Seedless Blackberry jam!! How lucky we were! Of course my kids ate quite a few raw, but the majority were chopped up and made into sauce!

When I first thought of how to use this fresh unsweetened applesauce in my recipes I thought of muffins. Those turned out good!!

The kids and I gobbled these up fast! They were REALLY moist and melted in your mouth tender crumb❤

I thought this time I would try out my applesauce bread recipe but make it keto!! It worked!!

So I stored it in the fridge overnight and I am making oven french toast out of it!

I figured out net carbs from the ingredients that contain them: applesauce, almond butter, and coconut flour. I did not add in the monkfruit since it is a 0 net amount.

The full recipe contains 71g net carbs. You can make this in a bread pan, as shown, cut into 10 generous pieces at 7.1g carb each.

You can also make muffins and divide accordingly.

Bake muffins at 350F for 20 min until toothpick tested clean.

I have also made jumbo muffins before baking for 35 min plus 10 min cooling time in the pan.

Keto Applesauce Bread

1½ cups unsweetened applesauce

4 eggs room temperature

½ cup creamy almond butter

¼ cup coconut oil melted

½ cup monkfruit sweetener

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

½ cup + 2 tablespoons coconut flour

2 teaspoons cinnamon

½ teaspoon nutmeg

¼ teaspoon allspice

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder

¼ teaspoon sea salt

¼ cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350°F.

In a large bowl mix applesauce, eggs, almond butter, coconut oil, monkfruit, and vanilla until well creamed.

In a small bowl, whisk dry EXCEPT pecans.

Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix well.

Stir in pecans at the end before spreading into greased 9×5 bread pan. If you use a smaller bread pan, like 8×5, you may have a sinking happen in the middle due to too much batter. It will still taste fine.

Bake 60 to 65 min until toothpick tested clean AND top springs back when pressed.

Cool 30 minutes in the pan.

Remove onto cooling rack to cool before cutting.

Store in fridge up to 7 days.


Keto French Toast Sticks

It was before I made the choice to eat healthy when I would visit my fave fast food drive thru to get my breakfast of French Toast sticks. I would get an extra syrup cup, and never thought twice about the ingredients!

That was 8 yrs ago before my daughter was born and I became conscience of my eating habits! I have since gone gluten free and most recently keto! I still have my two children to feed so I have to recreate favorites to make them healthier! So here you have my version of French Toast sticks! They were a big hit with the kids, and I plan on making extra and freezing for the busy school mornings ahead!

The first step in making these uber yummy sticks is to have your fave loaf of bread! You can purchase a loaf of keto bread, or follow my recipe to make your own! Here is my quick and easy recipe to make a tasty loaf of your own!

So now that you have your bread of choice ready, take out 3 slices and lets get started!

Cut each slice vertically into 3 pieces like this!

Set aside while you prepare the egg dip!

You will need a semi shallow bowl and add 2 large eggs and 1/4 cup heavy cream(or canned coconut milk).

Then add 1 tsp ground cinnamon and 1 tsp vanilla extract.

Whisk it all well until it looks like this! You want to make sure it is well whisked as you don’t want stringy egg whites cooked to your sticks!

Now its time to heat up your pan. Get it nice and hot and add 1 Tbsp coconut oil or butter. I prefer coconut oil as it gives it a fried doughnut taste😋!

Get your batter bowl close to the pan and dip each side into the egg wash. Gently place on the pan after you let the excess drip off.

Don’t crowd too many on as you want to have room to flip them!

Give it a few minutes and then flip to the other side. You want them golden brown like this.

Since my slices were thicker, I also put them on their sides to crisp up the edges. If your bread is thinner you won’t have to worry about this step.

Next add 1/4 cup Lakanto monkfruit sweetener (or preferred granulated sweetener) and 1 Tbsp cinnamon to a small bowl. Whisk well.

As the french toast sticks are done, brush them with softened, or melted butter.

Then dip each one in the cinnamon/sweetener bowl.

They are ready to either place on a cookie sheet and freeze for quick breakfasts, or to eat immediately!

I poured out some of Lakantos Sugar Free maple syrup to dip mine in. The kids used real maple syrup for theirs!

They are dense and filling! I absolutely loved these! The dipping is fun too!

This recipe makes 2 servings at approx. 5 net carbs per serving!
