Keto French Toast

With Our 90 Second Bread!

You guys have confirmed it, our 90 second keto bread is all the rage and I’m super happy to hear it’s been making your lives a little easier. It’s not eggy (at all!) and has solid toasting capabilities (hooray!).

I mean, I’ll always play favorites with the soft ‘n fluffy sandwich bread, but a 5 minute option sure does come in handy.

And it turns out that our little microwave hack works the charm in french toast too! Not gonna lie, I was slightly hesitant as it’s fairly corn-breadish when cold… but it turns out that it absorbs the egg batter nicely, and has a lovely soft (yet sturdy!) texture post cooking.

In fact, I’m certain that you guys could simply slice up the loaf into rectangles and it would make for some wonderful french toast sticks too! I’ve always been a fan of these, as you get more of the crisp egg outer crust (best part right?!).

The Coating

When it comes to french toast, I’ll forever advocate for rolling it in cinnamon ‘sugar’ right after cooking (to ensure it adheres nicely!). Lakanto golden, with its maple notes, works the charm here.

But if you’re team powdered sugar that’s OK too! Allulose and xylitol (non-corn though to avoid tummy troubles!) probably have the least aftertaste, and you can simply powder them yourself in a (very dry!) bullet or blender.

If using xylitol, make sure to be careful if you have a pup (or kitty!) around the house, as it’s highly toxic to the little guys!

The Toppings

Be sure to serve them up with grass-fed butter and sugar free syrup (Lakanto’s or ChocZero are reader favorites).

And if you’re not that into alternative syrups (they have maltodextrin after all!), I highly suggest you do a generous drizzle of our 15 minute caramel sauce! Caramel french toast anyone?!

Or do a strawberries ‘n cream sorta thing!

Serving suggestions

Special equipment


  1. Make a batch of our 90 second keto bread. Set on a rack to cool slightly before slicing while you prepare the rest. 

  2. In a medium bowl or flat-ish dish (think one were you can lay down the slices!), whisk thoroughly together the egg, almond milk, heavy cream, vanilla extract and salt. Set aside. In a small bowl mix the sweetener with the cinnamon and set aside. 

  3. Melt roughly 1 tablespoon of butter in a skillet or pan over medium/high heat. 

  4. Slice up the loaf or cut into sticks and soak in the egg mixture for a minute or two. I've noticed that when the bread is slightly warm it absorbs more readily than when cold, so adjust accordingly. 

  5. Shake off any excess and cook on each side until nice and golden. Sprinkle with cinnamon 'sugar' right away and serve with toppings of choice.

    I just use Franz KETO bread to make my French Toast. That is a lot less work for me. I often add a little Bailey’s Irish Cream to the milk/cream mixture.

  2. Mary Wyrick says:

    Better French Toast than regular French Toast. Is without the guilt. I can see so many things I can do with this bread now. I will be making sugar free maple syrup as well.

    I remember when I first tried 80 second bread the old way. I so dont miss that bland cornbread texture…lol
    Thank you for all your wonderful recipes.

  3. Kimberleigh says:

    OK so this is for REAL is some seriously good French toast! The texture & flavor is perfect in my opinion. And the cinnamon “sugar” takes it to a whole ‘nother level … like something off the menu at a high end brunch spot. No one would EVER believe this was a no sugar/grain/flour recipe.
    5 Stars!

  4. Michelle says:

    (maybe a duplicate comment?) As I have come to expect, this recipe made awesomeness. I made 4x the bread batter (which turned out to be too much for my beaters, oops! I’ll Kitchenaid mixer it next time) sliced each “loaf” into six sticks, soaked in the batter and pan fried it golden in butter using the cinnamon brown sugar variation (with no almond milk, so I used heavy cream for both parts). One of my guests ate it without syrup and was very happy with it. My two big eaters ate a “loaf” each, and were full to the brim, but I got so many compliments. I didn’t feel near as bad since it was under 10 carbs. Thank you, Paola, for coming through for me again!

  5. Trixi says:

    I usually don’t comment on food blogs but this recipe deserves all praise it can get – I’ve never had anything this delicious since I started keto! I couldnt help myself from eating the whole match xD
    I would even go as far to say that it tasted better than the real deal! Hats off to you☆

    Love from Finland

    omg paola, this one was nothing short of incredible! i’ve always had trouble making breads from the recipes on your site for some reason (they always turn out dense and not fluffy, not sure what i do wrong) – but THIS ONE WAS FABULOUS!! I was super skeptical at first but you proved me wrong!! I swear, it had the same texture same taste as REAL french toast, i couldn’t tell the difference!! This seriously just blew my mind. I am so impressed! THANK YOU for this!!

  7. Jahmila D says:

    Paola this was delicious!! I didn’t have golden flaxseed so I used the milled flaxseed. It taste better than regular French toast in my opinion. Thank you for sharing

  8. Lisa says:

    WOW… You’ve brought real French toast back to my life! French toast without compromising my eating plan. Thanks Paola! You work miracles 👼

  9. Koh says:

    For those of us with no microwave, how would we make the 90 second bread? Or mug cakes? Thanks for any help. Your recipes are wonderful!

  10. Katie says:

    I love the 90 second bread and made a very similar version of this French toast with it last week! Yesterday I got together with girlfriends for brunch and I made a French toast casserole with the 90 second bread, and let me tell you it was AMAZING. I did 3 batches of the 90 second bread (tripled the ingredients and mixed it all together at once but microwaved in 3 separate batches). Cubed it, sprinkled crushed pecans on top and poured a mixture of 3 eggs, 1c heavy cream, lankato, vanilla and maple extracts, and cinnamon on top and baked at 350 for about 30 mins. SO GOOD and it was a hit with my non Keto friends. I added maple extract to the bread and egg mixture too. Love the 90 second bread and how versatile it is!! 😍

    • Tina Jacobson says:

      Thank you! I wanted to see if I could make this into a French toast casserole!! I love the French toast recipe but hate slaving over a pan. This is the best of both worlds! Thank you Paula for the recipe – I love all your recipes and you’re my first choice for Keto, and thank you Katie for the additional add on!💕

    Question on your non corn comment regarding xylitol and allulose. It looks like both of the products you linked are made from corn, is that correct?

    • Paola van der Hulst says:

      Hi James! Ooops thanks for the heads up, changed it now to the birch xylitol (XyloSweet is good too tbh, it’s just the NOW xylitol which I’ve found to be very poor). Allulose seems to always come from non-gmo corn (as does Lakanto, Swerve etc) xo!

      • James Petty says:

        So you find that the Xylitol from Birch in this case doesn’t upset your stomach and the corn based Xylitol does?

        Also, I was reading a bit on Allulose and seems like there is some conflicting reports on how healthy it is long term. You seem to be the keto queen on ingredients so figured you have researched it. What is your opinion on it?
