Breaking Down the Classic French Toast 

Before we dive into our easy keto french toast recipe, let's revisit the traditional French toast recipe that holds a golden space in our hearts. Traditionally, French toast, also known as eggy bread or Bombay toast, starts with thick slices of white bread soaked in a savory egg mixture and then toasted to a golden brown perfection. It's often topped with a sprinkle of powdered sugar or a drizzle of syrup, creating a breakfast that feels both comforting and indulgent.

However, when you're following a keto lifestyle, these traditional ingredients might not align with your dietary goals due to the extra carbs found in white bread and regular syrups. But fear not, because our keto french toast sticks recipe is here to bring the joy back to your morning meals, keeping all the flavor and texture intact, but with only a fraction of the carbs.

Ingredients Swapped and Twisted 

To craft the perfect keto french toast sticks, we’ve bid goodbye to the white bread and welcomed low-carb bread options into the mix. The main ingredient, of course, remains as the egg mixture, which we've enriched with heavy whipping cream and vanilla extract for a creamier texture and a hint of sweetness.

For the bread, options like almond flour or coconut flour bread come into play, providing a sturdy yet tender base for our toast. And to sweeten the deal, we use keto-friendly sweeteners, allowing you to enjoy a hint of sweetness without the additional carbs. Let's get into the details of the recipe now!
